Northrop Grumman: HAMMR Multi-Mission Radar Capability Demonstrated During US Army’s C-RAM Test

At Yuma Proving Ground earlier this year, the U.S. Army selected Northrop Grumman Corporation’s (NYSE: NOC) Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) to demonstrate the multi-mission capability of the 2017 counter-rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM.)

HAMMR incorporates an Active Electronically Scanned Array fighter radar mounted on a ground vehicle or towable trailer to provide continuous 360-degree protection against multiple ground and airborne targets, according to a statement by Northrop Grumman.
It is designed to allow ground soldiers on-the-move to maintain their operational pace without sacrificing protection.

HAMMR provides situational awareness, counter-fire operations, air defense, early warning and airspace management capabilities.

The system detected and identified Groups I and II unmanned aerial systems during a test, providing real-time intelligence to the operator.

HAMMR is also able to connect to the Army’s Forward Area Air Defense command and control system.

“HAMMR is the only AESA radar out there today that can support our maneuver forces’ on-the-move multi-mission operation,” said Roshan Roeder, vice president, mission solutions, Northrop Grumman. “Since HAMMR shares common hardware with our fighter aircraft radars, our customers realize the cost advantages of high-volume AESA production and benefit from the inherent reliability of this mature, proven technology.”
