Curtiss-Wright awarded radar contract

  • 19-Jun-2008 09:02 EDT

Northrop Grumman issued a contract to Curtiss-Wright Corp. to provide radar processing subsystems for use in the U.S. Marine Corps’ Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) program. The initial contract, valued at $4.3 million, is for development expected to be completed in 2010. Curtiss-Wright will supply Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems with a rugged air-flow-through radar processing subsystem. Curtiss Wright’s solution uses open architecture-based standards and software to provide a high-performance, modular, scalable solution for the G/ATOR processor. This subsystem will be designed and manufactured at Curtiss-Wright’s motion control facility in San Diego, CA, and will include the latest digital signal processing, field programmable gate array, and single-board computer products from its Leesburg, VA, and Ottawa, Canada, locations. The production phase of the program will be executed as an option under the current contract, and is planned to start in 2010.
