Northrop Grumman Wins $958M U.S. Marine Corps Contract for 30 AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar Units
June 8, 2019 DP Press Releases 0 Comments Air Surveillance Radar, AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR), Northrop Grumman, U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), USA
Northrop Grumman Systems is awarded a $958 million U.S. Marine Corps contract for 30 full-rate production AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) units.

The firm-fixed-price contract was awarded by the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC). This procurement also includes spares parts and retrofit kits and is under the portfolio management of Program Executive Officer Land Systems, Quantico, Virginia.

Work will be performed in Linthicum, Maryland (37 percent); East Syracuse, New York (28 percent); Stafford Springs, Connecticut (7 percent); Tulsa, Oklahoma (6 percent); Syracuse, New York (4 percent); Valencia, California (3 percent); San Diego, California (3 percent); Richardson, Texas (3 percent); Farmingdale, New York (2 percent); St. Paul, Minnesota (2 percent); Gilbert, Arizona (1 percent); Phoenix, Arizona (1 percent); Lowell, Massachusetts (1 percent); Littleton, Colorado (1 percent); and Durham, North Carolina (1 percent), and is expected to be complete by Jan. 13, 2025.

Northrop Grumman’s AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR is an advanced, multi-mission Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar that provides comprehensive real time, 360 degree situational awareness. It is Marine Corps’ next generation Air Surveillance/Air Defense and Air Traffic Control Radar.

As of May 14, eight production systems have been delivered to the Marine Corps. In early 2017, Northrop Grumman delivered six low rate initial production systems. The first Gallium Nitride (GaN) systems were delivered ahead of schedule in July 2018 and were used for development test (DT) 1E1, DT1E2 and IOT&E.

The Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) for the AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR Blocks 1 and 2 was successfully conducted by Northrop Grumman, in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, earlier this year.

US Air Force gears up for aggressor drills to simulate combat with China’s J-20 fifth-generation fighters
American F-35As will be transferred to Nevada base to mimic role and tactics of Powerful Dragon fighters in ‘aggressor’ exercises
US to train pilots for confrontation with world’s most advanced warplanes as concern mounts in Washington about China’s growing military might

In an official statement, Chris Sukach, a spokesman for Nellis Air Force Base, said the decision was part of a larger initiative to “improve training for fifth-generation fighter aircraft”, adding that a total of 11 F-35As would be transferred to the base to play the role of enemy warplanes.
“This added capability will enhance the already robust adversary replication provided to US and partner nation air forces through multiple training and exercise scenarios,” Sukach said.

Experts noted that the decision to use the F-35A to simulate the J-20 underscored growing American concerns about China’s military modernisation programme and its expanded operational strength.
Zhang Baohui, director of the Centre for Asian Pacific Studies at Lingnan University in Hong Kong, said: “The F-35 and J-20 are comparable fighter jets and it is no surprise that the US would use the F-35 to simulate the J-20 for training purposes.

Zhang noted that fifth-generation fighter jets were considered a “game changer” in modern warfare, adding:“The US F-22 and F-35, China’s J-20, and Russia’s Su-57 are the only fifth-generation fighters in existence. This implies that the US has to treat the J-20 seriously.”
“Great powers all regularly train their militaries for scenarios that involve each others’ militaries … They [the US] just want to be prepared for the worst-case scenarios,” he added.

In a report released earlier this year, the US Congress warned that the J-20 could pose a serious threat to the US military.
The J-20 features “high manoeuvrability, stealth characteristics and an internal weapons bay, as well as advanced avionics and sensors providing enhanced situational awareness, advanced radar tracking and targeting capabilities, and integrated EW [electronic warfare] systems”, the Congressional report said.
In December, a mock-up of a J-20 was spotted at a military facility on the perimeter of Savannah-Hilton Head Airport in Georgia, which is home to the US Air Dominance Centre.
Chinese military officers’ tough talk on the US is a product of fear and frustration, not a real threat
The Marine Corps Training and Education Command later told the Marine Corps Times that the replica jet had been involved in various experiments and military training while at the Savannah base.
Adam Ni, a China researcher at Macquarie University in Sydney, said that as the US embarked on a new Indo-Pacific strategy, it would have to consider how China’s growing influence in the region was eroding its military advantage.
“The PLA has increasingly been called upon to defend and advance Chinese interests abroad, such as the protection of key sea routes, and Chinese overseas communities and investment,” Ni said.

“A more advanced bomber and fighter fleet will enable Beijing to better deter the US in regional interventions by raising the costs and risks for the American forces. Such scenarios include the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea.”
Last weekend Chinese Defence Minister General Wei Fenghe delivered an uncompromising message at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, saying the PLA would stand firm and defend China’s national interests in areas such as Taiwan and the South China Sea.
“In Beijing’s view, the intensifying strategic competition between China and the US calls for more resources to be directed at enhancing military capabilities and readiness so the PLA can deter conflict. Flashpoints such as Taiwan, and South and East China Seas are important to Chinese military planning,” Ni said.

Vu la différence de gabarit je me demande si finalement les US ne considèrent pas le J-20 comme étant pas si mauvais en maniabilité et en furtivité que ça... en tout cas pas au niveau du F/A-22 apparemment
