Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Linthicum, Maryland, was awarded a $236,941,008 modification for the firm-fixed-price portion of previously awarded contract. The total cumulative face value of the contract is $686,355,923.
This modification provides for the exercise of three option contract line items to procure eight AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented (G/ATOR) Gallium Nitride Radars full rate production systems with associated travel and one lot of the initial provisioning package (spares) in support of Program Executive Officer Land Systems, Quantico, Virginia.
The G/ATOR multi-mission air surveillance system can detect, identify and track airborne threats common to combat environments. These include cruise missiles, aircraft, and remotely piloted vehicles, as well as rocket, artillery, and mortar fire.
The long-range, high-performance AN/TPS-80 replaces five of the Marine Corps’ single-mission radars with one multi-mission system, reducing cost and complexity while streamlining training. It consolidates the air surveillance, air defense and counterfire target acquisition missions of the AN/TPQ-46, UPS-3, AN/TPS-63, AN/MPQ-62 and AN/TPS-73 into one package with radar, power and communications elements.
Work will be performed in Linthicum, Maryland, and is expected to be complete by Feb. 28, 2024. Fiscal 2021 procurement (Marine Corps) funds in the amount of $236,941,008 will be obligated at the time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The contract modification was not competitively procured.
