"The Long Range Radar [LRR] is a natural fit into the Northrop Grumman family of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance [ISR] systems and mission solutions," said Steve McCoy, vice president of tactical sensor solutions, Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems. "Our low-risk, affordable solution combines mature Active Electronically Scanned Array [AESA] technology with operationally proven hardware and software to meet all-weather and long-range ISR requirements."

Northrop Grumman's LRR solution helps enhance the Army's C4ISR capabilities by combining the proven Gen 2 Vehicle and Dismount and Exploitation Radar (VADER) back-end electronics and software with a high technology readiness level AESA to meet the demanding performance requirements of ARL-E and in particular the dismount moving target indication.

Backed by more than 40 years of experience in developing and fielding radars, Northrop Grumman's family of tactical radars provide unrelenting surveillance and precision battlefield intelligence in all types of weather and obscurants, day or night. LRR is the newest member of the tactical radar family, joining the short-range STARLite and medium-range VADER systems.
