The exhibit will also feature a range of Northrop Grumman's industry-leading radar-related technology. The AN/APR-39 radar warning receiver protects a wide variety of fixed-, rotary- and tilt-wing aircraft from threats, and is designed to maximize survivability by improving aircrew situational awareness. The system provides continuous 360-degree coverage to detect and identify threat types, bearing and lethality before alerting a cockpit crew to each threat with a graphical symbol on the cockpit multifunction display or video display.
The company is the world's sole provider of fire control radars for fifth-generation fighters and supplies the active electronically scanned array fire control radars for the F-22 and F-35 and the fire control radar for the F-16 Block 60. The exhibit will feature the APG-80 Scalable Agile Beam Radar for the F-16 and the APG-81 for the F-35.
A model of the AN/TPS-78 latest generation radar, made possible by technological advances in high power transistor design, will be featured in the exhibit.
The company's airborne surveillance capability will also be highlighted with a model of the lighter-than-air Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) being developed for the U.S. Army. The system is designed to be operated with or without a crew on board, and offers persistent surveillance with reconfigurable payloads to meet multimission needs. The first flight of the LEMV was successfully completed in August 2012.A range of C2/C3/C4I solutions will be highlighted including the International Track Server, International Command and Control Enterprise and the SoldierLink System, a lightweight communications and information system for dismounted soldiers. A Real Time Information in the Cockpit system will be available for viewing. The company's naval and maritime capabilities will be highlighted in NAVDEX, the dedicated naval defence area at IDEX. This will include Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine's latest generation of navigation, ship control and radar technology.
