Five E-2D Advanced Hawkeyes assigned to Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 125 will make their maiden deployment as part of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1 aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71).

 

The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is set to replace the E-2C Hawkeye in its primary mission to provide airborne early warning and command and control capabilities for all aircraft-carrier battle groups. While the primary mission for the E-2 has not changed, the Advanced Hawkeye is able to gather and process data more precisely and efficiently thanks to state-of-the-art radar and communication equipment.

Japan Selects Northrop Grumman's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye and RQ-4 Global Hawk to Improve Intel Gathering Capabilities

 

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 18, 2015 – Northrop Grumman

 

The Japan Ministry of Defense has selected two Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) systems to enhance its intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

 

Under a process known as type selection, the Japanese government chose the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft and the RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system to help maintain the country's sovereignty.

 

Type selection identifies the capabilities and systems to be purchased to meet specific defense requirements. Following selection, the U.S. government will be asked to enter into the foreign military sale (FMS) process for these items.

 

"Northrop Grumman has a long history working with Japan's Air Self-Defense Force and we look forward to continuing that relationship for many years to come," said Mary Petryszyn, vice president for International, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "We are very pleased the Japan Ministry of Defense has expressed confidence in these systems and look forward to working with our U.S. military customers through the FMS process."

 

Contract terms, timing and quantities of aircraft are yet to be determined and, as such, details are not available at this time.

Northrop Grumman has received a $3.6bn contract from the US Navy to deliver 25 new E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft, specifically designed as a carrier-based airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) system.

 

The latest fixed-price, incentive-fee multi-year agreement brings the total number of aircraft on contract with Northrop to 50.

 

Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems E-2 / C-2 programmes vice-president Bart LaGrone said: "It's a win-win. Our warfighters will get the advanced AEW&C technology that the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye brings, at a lower cost for taxpayers."

 

Designed to operate in the littoral and over land to provide unprecedented, 360-degree surveillance, the platform features open architecture compliant and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based hardware and software.

 

The aircraft can be used by the US Navy to conduct airborne strikes, land force support and rescue operations. It will also allow the navy to manage a reliable communications network between widely dispersed nodes and support drug interdiction operations.

 

 

Featuring command and control capabilities, the aircraft provides expanded battlespace awareness for soldiers, especially in information operations and battle management, theatre air and missile defence, and multiple sensor fusion capabilities.

 

The aircraft is fitted with the AN/APY-9 radar system, featuring both mechanical and electronic scanning capabilities, fully integrated glass tactical cockpit, advanced identification friend or foe system, electronic support measures enhancements and a modernised communications and data link suite.

 

E-2 / C-2 Airborne Tactical Data System Programme Office (PMA-231) programme manager navy captain John Lemmon said: "The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the navy's primary airborne early warning and battle management command and control platform.

 

"I'm confident that as the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye attains initial operational capability later this year, the E-2D will continue to be ready, relevant and capable for decades to come and continue serving the navy carrier strike group with distinction."

 

To date, the company has delivered 13 production aircraft, as part of the navy's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye programme.

Northrop Grumman Highlights Global Defence and Security Capabilities at DIMDEX 2014

 

DOHA, QATAR – March 25, 2014 Northrop Grumman Corporation

 

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will highlight a range of its global defence and security solutions, including airborne early warning and control systems, aerial surveillance and mine countermeasures at DIMDEX 2014.

 

The Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX) takes place at the Qatar National Convention Centre, from March 25-27, 2014.

 

Northrop Grumman has had a presence in the Middle East for more than a decade. The recent appointments of Walid Abukhaled and Doug Raaberg as chief executives in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates respectively, enhances the company's presence and further positions Northrop Grumman for success in the Middle East region as the company continues to broaden its global market focus.

 

"Northrop Grumman's strong relationship with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries goes back many decades and is built on a legacy of trust and performance," said Abukhaled. "Our objective is to continue to work closely with our customers to build on this partnership and to provide the most advanced long-term capabilities to help meet the needs for enhanced defence and national security across the region."

 

The world-leading airborne early warning capabilities of its E-2D Advanced Hawkeye will be highlighted in Northrop Grumman's exhibit demonstrating the E-2D's capabilities for military and civil applications.

 

The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye couples a newly designed electronically scanned radar with a matching suite of sensors, avionics, processors, software and displays to provide the most technologically advanced command and control capability available worldwide. The new AN/APY-9 radar is the backbone of the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye and provides greater flexibility and significantly improved detection and tracking over all terrains. Northrop Grumman has delivered 12 E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft to the U.S. Navy and initial operational capability with the Navy fleet is on track for 2015. The programme entered full-rate production in early 2013 after being declared operationally suitable and effective following a robust 10 month initial operational test and evaluation by the Navy.

 

Northrop Grumman's capability in mine detection will also be highlighted at the show. The AQS-24A high-speed mine-hunting system can be towed from the MH-53E and MCH-101 helicopters, and unmanned surface vessels. The AQS-24A and its predecessor systems, AQS-24 and the AQS-14, are the operational airborne mine-hunting search systems used by the U.S. Navy for the past 29 years. The helicopter-carried Airborne Laser Mine Detection System is a laser-based, light detection and ranging sensor system that detects, classifies and localizes surface and near-surface mine-like objects from above the waterline and is complementary to the AQS-24A.

 

Additionally on display will be a model of the Bat™ UAS, Northrop Grumman's family of multimission, persistent and affordable unmanned air vehicles that can be configured for tactical missions such as counter IED, communications relay, signals intelligence, electronic warfare (EW), and maritime surveillance. Combat-proven, Bat has been deployed to multiple forward operating bases in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Bat has flown a large variety of payloads such as EO/IR, SAR, SIGINT, EW and Comms Relay.
