Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) wants to partner with U.S.-based electronics suppliers as it pursues a U.S. Navy air and missile defense radar program, the company said Thursday.

“We are offering opportunities to industry to compete for both the hardware and software components of our AMDR solution, ” said Gloria Flach, corporate vice president and president of Northrop’s electronic systems sector.

Flach will host an industry day Jan. 30 at Northrop’s electronic systems sector headquarters in Linthicum, Md. with separate half-day sessions scheduled at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Northrop said its proposal for the shipboard radar program is based off its S-band radar, an active electonically scanned radar.

The Navy intends to use the winning radar for ballistic missile defense, air defense and surface warfare missions.
