Description: The Northrop Grumman Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system is an advanced sensor designed to support US Marine Corps (USMC) amphibious assault breaching operations. COBRA is a designated mission system integrated on the MQ-8B Fire Scout Vertical Takeoff Unmanned Air Vehicle (VTUAV) as part of the Mine Warfare Mission Package onboard the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). It entered low rate production in April 2009. The COBRA sensor is designed to detect and localize minefields patterns and other obstacles from the beach exit zone through the surf-zone, safely, from the air, prior to amphibious assaults, to help assure Marines have access to their targets. Other system components include a post-mission analysis station and the ground control station for the VTUAV.
