Northrop Grumman To Feature 'Family Of Systems' Mission Concepts In AFA Air Warfare Symposium Display

"Our pledge to warfighters is to meet cost and schedule commitments on every program; to make smart use of technology to increase system performance and reliability, and to ensure, through intelligent, cradle-to-grave logistics, that they remain ready to perform their mission at all times," he said.

The FoS presented in Northrop Grumman's display includes seven major elements:
  • Information, surveillance and reconnaissance: Airborne, surface and spaceborne platforms that use sensors to collect and disseminate data.
  • Communications: Line-of-sight or beyond-line-of-sight systems that enable information sharing across the battlespace.
  • Battle management command and control: Systems that convert raw data to knowledge and use that knowledge to direct battlefield activities.
  • Electronic attack and cyber: Systems that produce desired effects through electronic means (jamming, etc.).
  • Long-range strike: Weapon systems that include conventional stand-off bombers and stealthier, longer-range bombers that can penetrate deeply into enemy territory and deliver large amounts of precision weapons.
  • Weapons: Long-range weapons that extend the effective range of delivery platforms, thereby protecting them against lethal defensive threats.
  • Air power practitioner:Coordinates and helps synchronize the operations of the other six FoS components.

Operating alone or in concert, FoS elements can be used to conduct missions that protect U.S. forces, project power against an enemy or meet national security requirements.

"Northrop Grumman has prime contractor roles in all aspects of the family of systems, and the logistics that support it," said Meyer. "From platforms and sensors to proven command and control technologies to unmatched systems engineering skills, we're ready to help the Air Force develop, deploy, sustain and modernize affordable systems that will keep our nation secure."
