Northrop Grumman wins $58.7M contract to add software upgrade to radar

Northrop Grumman has won a $58.7 million contract with the Marine Corps to develop and test the Ground Weapon Locating Radar mode for the G/ATOR radar.

The GWLR mode is a software update that brings additional mission capability to the ground-based multi-mission Active Electronically Scanned Array radar developed by the Department of Defense, the company said in a release.

When all modes are fully implemented, Marine Corps operators will have a common hardware solution with the ability to switch between air surveillance, air defense, ground weapon locating, and air traffic control through software, the company said.
