Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $375 million U.S. Navy contract for procurement of the Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar, or G/ATOR, system.

The four-year, fixed-price-incentive contract covers procurement of nine G/ATOR low-rate initial production systems.

Work will be performed in Maryland, New York, Connecticut, Oklahoma, California, Arizona, Minnesota, New Hampshire and North Carolina.

The work is expected to be completed by September 2020.

The Marine Corps Systems Command is the contracting activity.

The G/ATOR is a highly mobile, multimission radar system designed to support global expeditionary requirements.

It offers multi-faceted detection and tracking capabilities to engage a range of hostile threats while providing robust air traffic control.
