SP's MAI - - UNMANNED -

Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­ra­tion un­veiled the first US Navy MQ-4C Tri­ton broad area maritime sur­veil­lance un­manned air­craft sys­tem (BAMS UAS) re­cently. “Northrop Grum­man is proud to pro­vide our US Navy cus­tomer with the MQ-4C Tri­ton un­manned air­craft, a key el­e­ment of the BAMS UAS pro­gramme, rep­re­sent­ing the fu­ture of naval avi­a­tion and a strate­gic el­e­ment of the US Navy,” said Duke Dufresne, Northrop Grum­man Aero­space Sys­tems sec­tor Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager for Un­manned Sys­tems. “The BAMS UAS pro­gramme will rev­o­lu­tionise per­sis­tent maritime in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance. We are hon­oured to serve the US Navy and our na­tion’s al­lies in the quest to build and main­tain a strong and co­op­er­a­tive global maritime do­main.”

The Northrop Grum­man BAMS UAS is a ver­sa­tile maritime in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance sys­tem to sup­port a va­ri­ety of mis­sions while oper­at­ing in­de­pen­dently or in di­rect col­lab­o­ra­tion with fleet as­sets. When op­er­a­tional, BAMS will play a key role in pro­vid­ing com­man­ders with a per­sis­tent, re­li­able pic­ture of sur­face threats, cov­er­ing vast ar­eas of open ocean and lit­toral re­gions as the un­manned seg­ment of the Navy’s Maritime Pa­trol Re­con­nais­sance Force.
