Northrop Grumman has won a $36 million contract to support the U.S. Army’s Joint Tactical Ground Station.
The Joint Tactical Ground Station, or JTAGS, is an information processing system that receives and processes in-theater, infrared data downlinked from satellite sensors of the Defense Support Program, Space Based Infrared System and other systems, Northrop said in a release.
Under the contract, Northrop will provide development and delivery of two prototype systems.
"This contract begins the development phase of the JTAGS P3I program, bringing us closer to delivering improved missile warning for our warfighters," said Ed Bush, vice president of Northrop Grumman's C4ISR Networked Systems business unit.
