Northrop Grumman Corporation has unveiled its air-to-ground “Vanguard” radar solution; a multi-function, open architecture system that can be easily scaled and applied to multiple missions and platforms. With its modular, panelbased structure, each radar panel represents a flexible building block that can be tailored to meet changing mission requirements. Each panel can act independently as its own radar, but can also be connected with the desired number of other radar panels to form one single, larger radar array.
Northrop Grumman has conducted successfully more than 10 rigorous test flights. Crucial modes to the air-toground radar mission, include Ground Moving Target Indicator, Dismounted Moving Target Indicator and Synthetic Aperture Radar.
