U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman has announced that it been selected by the Army to sustain the VADER, short for Vehicle and Dismount and Exploitation Radar.

Northrop Grumman has secured a potential five-year, $89.6 million contract to help the U.S. Army design, build and sustain long-range radar systems.

Army Contracting Command received one bid for the Long Range Radar-Enhanced (LRR-E) and VADER program through an online solicitation, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

According to the LRR-E VADER solicitation notice, tasks will encompass lifecycle systems support such as development, technical insertion, integration, test, engineering and sustainment.

The VADER designed to support multiple missions, including the capability to detect dismounts and facilitate the exploitation of this data, in real-time, by ground commanders. It is part of the Northrop Grumman’s family of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems and mission solutions.

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. The new system is the newest member of the tactical radar family, joining the short-range STARLite and medium-range VADER systems.
