“As the radio frequency threat grows worldwide, the protection the AN/APR-39D(V)2 provides has become essential for our warfighters and international partners,” said Ryan Tintner, vice president, navigation, targeting and survivability, Northrop Grumman.
Northrop Grumman will deliver small and lightweight systems that protect rotary and fixed wing aircraft from modern radio frequency (RF) threats, such as radar-guided missiles and anti-aircraft artillery. The APR-39D(V)2 RWR will feature an all-digital, multichannel monitor with a 360° spherical coverage area to detect threats.
The company’s receivers will also determine identity, bearing and lethality. The system is able to automatically initiate optimal defensive measures and has an immediate growth capability for RF countermeasures.
Northrop Grumman will leverage its next generation electronic warfare architecture, which will increase value and agility. The company has integrated this architecture across proven electronic warfare systems that are currently in production. The AN/APR-39D(V)2 is planned for integration on the AH-1Z, AH-64E, ARL-E, MV-22, UH-1Y and CH-53E/K.
