Saab has received a $36.7 million (€31.6 million) order from Northrop Grumman, prime contractor for the USMC’s AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) for components and subsystems to support the radar’s full-rate production phase.
Saab will deliver against the contract between 2020-2021 from its facility in Syracuse, NY. The initial full-rate production contract, awarded to Saab in 2019, also includes options for additional sets of assemblies and associated spares over a five-year period until 2024. Saab has been a major partner with Northrop Grumman since the initial G/ATOR system design and development contract award in 2007.
“Through Saab’s strong partnership with Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, we continue to advance the G/ATOR program in support of the US Marine Corps. Each delivery of the G/ATOR system improves the capability and effectiveness of our Armed Forces and represents Saab’s enduring commitment to advancing the safety and security of our US stakeholders,” commented Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab in the US.
