Northrop Demos Communications Capabilities of RAPTR Sensor, Mini-CNI Tech on Black Hawk - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Northrop Grumman demonstrated the capability of the Re Scalable Aperture for Precision Targeting Radar and Mini-Communications, Navigation, Identification system to transmit communications and sensor data while onboard a flying UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter.

The company said Monday its RAPTR sensor and Mini-CNI system performed air-to-ground communications while carrying out air-to-air target searching and tracking functions during a flight test held at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.

The demonstration is part of a series of tests aimed at exhibiting the company’s capabilities to improve the lethality, situational awareness and survivability of the U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift platforms. 

Northrop’s RAPTR and Mini-CNI come with a modular, software-defined open architecture designed to facilitate the integration of third-party components.

This flight test was a key step in demonstrating the ability to integrate multifunction sensors and advanced communications and networking systems into the FVL ecosystem that will provide warfighters with a number of new line-of-sight capabilities,” said Susan Bruce, vice president of advanced mission capabilities at Northrop.

The event advances Northrop’s efforts to advance Joint All-Domain Command and Control and offers an opportunity for the company to showcase capabilities that could support the Department of Defense’s long-range precision fires and manned-unmanned teaming operations.
