Description: The US Marine Corps Ground / Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) program is aimed at delivering a highly mobile transportable multi-role radar system. The program started in 2001 sponsored by the Office for Naval Research. The multi-role radar system is meant to be deployed with USMC Expeditionary Forces integrated on high mobility Humvee-sized vehicles. The Affordable Ground Based Radar (AGBR) was developed by Raytheon to meet the G/ATOR requirement.

Multi-purpose G/ATOR capabilities suits to air surveillance, air defense, ground weapons locating, and air traffic control. These tasks are done by five aging one-single purpose radar systems: AN/TPQ-63 air traffic control, AN/TPS-73 ground weapons locating, AN/MPQ-62 air defense and AN/TPS-59(V) air surveillance. The G/ATOR radar will provide target data to engage hostile aircraft, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), rockets, mortars, and artillery.

The US Marine Corps selected the Northrop Grumman-led team solution under a $256.6 million contract on April 4, 2007. The contract included development, fabrication and test of the Increment I system, low rate initial production of two G/ATOR systems and full-rate production of an additional 15 systems, and logistics support. The US Marine Corps plans call for the procurement of 63 systems to remain in service for a 25 years period under the Multi-Role Radar System (MRRS).

The Northrop Grumman solution incorporates AESA radar technology which translates into multi-mission performance and the ability to automatically adapt to dynamic battlefield conditions, at significantly lower operation and maintenance costs compared to existing radar systems. Its scaleable open system architecture and multi-network connectivity ensures compatibility with other US Department of Defense and allied command and control systems.
