SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­ra­tion has been se­lected by the Royal Thai Air Force to sup­ply ad­di­tional AN/ TPS-78 air de­fence and sur­veil­lance radar sys­tems. Un­der the terms of the con­tract, Northrop Grum­man will be­gin sup­ply­ing equip­ment to the Royal Thai Air Force in 2015. The com­pany will also pro­vide train­ing, spares and lo­gis­tics sup­port.

“With this award, we con­tinue our 25 years of sup­port of the Royal Thai Air Force and the na­tional se­cu­rity in­fra­struc­ture of Thai­land,” said Robert Royer, Vice Pres­i­dent of Northrop Grum­man’s In­ter­na­tional Sys­tems busi­ness unit. “Highly mo­bile and proven in a wide range of en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions, the AN/TPS-78 will give the Royal Thai Air Force a pow­er­ful new ca­pa­bil­ity for mon­i­tor­ing its na­tional airspace.”

The Northrop Grum­man AN/TPS-78 is among the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of highly mo­bile, state-of-the-art radars made pos­si­ble by ad­vances in high power tran­sis­tor tech­nol­ogy and de­signed to op­er­ate in some of the harsh­est, most de­mand­ing en­vi­ron­ments. The radar has proven par­tic­u­larly adept at de­tect­ing small tar­gets in ar­eas of dif­fi­cult land and sea clut­ter, mak­ing it well suited for use in moun­tain­ous and coastal re­gions.
