The U.S. Marine Corp has tapped Northrop Grumman to develop and test a ground weapon locating capability for its AN/TPS-80 radar system. The AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar, or G/ATOR, is a ground-based active electronically scanned array radar system from Northrop Grumman with a scalable open system architecture and a compatibility with other U.S. command-and-control systems.
