Next Generation Handheld Targeting System to combine capabilities of three systems into a single, lightweight system

APOPKA, Fla. - Oct. 9, 2019 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has been selected to build prototype Next Generation Handheld Targeting Systems (NGHTS) for the U.S. Marine Corps. These handheld systems will enable forward observers to quickly and efficiently acquire and designate targets with a high level of precision.

Northrop Grumman to Develop Advanced Targeting Systems for US Marine Corps "Our latest solution, based on our decades of experience in delivering handheld targeting systems, will provide the mobility and precision that forward observers need," said Bob Gough, vice president, land and avionics C4ISR, Northrop Grumman. "Combined with network connectivity, these capabilities will enable more informed and rapid targeting decisions."

The systems developed under the second phase of the NGHTS program are designed to replace three legacy systems, incorporating their separate target location, laser spot imaging and laser target designation capabilities into a single, lightweight system.

Northrop Grumman has delivered more than 20,000 man-portable target location and designation systems to the Department of Defense.
