BALTIMORE — Northrop Grumman Corp. has received an order from the U.S. Marine Corps for two additional AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) systems as part of the full-rate production Lot 2 award received in December, Northrop Grumman said. This order completes the planned Lot 2 procurement for a total of eight systems for the Marines. 

“We are continuing to provide an advanced, multimission capability that meets the evolving needs of our customers,” said Mike Meaney, vice president of land and maritime sensors for Northrop Grumman. “This order also enables us to keep the G/ATOR production pipeline full in anticipation for a Lot 3 award next year.” 

In June, the Marine Corps awarded Northrop Grumman a $958 million full-rate production contract for 30 of the G/ATOR systems. 

The AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR is an advanced active electronically scanned array (AESA) multimission radar that leverages GaN to provide comprehensive real-time, full-sector, 360-degree situational awareness against a wide array of threats.
