NATO has selected the TIPS industry consortium to provide the Alliance Ground
Surveillance (AGS) capability. TIPS consortium consists of EADS,
Northrop-Grumman, Thales, General Dynamics Canada, Galileo Avionica (Finmeccanica)
TIPS AGS proposal comprises a mixture of manned and unmanned airborne platforms
carrying advanced sensors to generate a situational awareness shared ground
picture that will be provided to NATO and national decision makers. The AGS
program represents a 21st century core capability for NATO.
The advanced sensors carried by AGS platforms will include state-of-the-art
radar technology supplied by the Transatlantic Cooperative AGS Radar (TCAR)
TIPS consortium expects a proposal phase later this year and a design and
development contract in early 2005 with AGS platforms reaching operational
capability in 2010.
