Northrop Grumman’s Short-Range Air Defense (SHORAD) capabilities protect U.S. and allied forces from a wide range of manned and unmanned air and missile threats. Northrop Grumman capabilities utilize sensors, weapons, and command control to acquire, track, verify, engage and defeat incoming threats.
Northrop Grumman’s SHORAD components provide the command and control (C2) and situational awareness to respond to diverse threats, 24/7, with scalable solutions aiding decision-making, making responses faster and more effective. Our solutions build upon existing Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) architecture to afford a clear path to integrate a variety of sensors and solutions to defeat current and future threats.
Elements of Northrop Grumman’s SHORAD include:
Forward Area Air Defense / Counter-Rocket Artillery Mortar Command and Control (FAAD/C-RAM C2) utilizes multiple sensors to provide a single integrated air picture (SIAP) to all SHORAD weapons, along with engagement orders and weapon control status to provide complete situational awareness.
The Air and Missile Defense Workstation (AMDWS) workstation contributes to combat effectiveness by combining intelligence, network and sensor data to provide an integrated view of the battlefield over tactical and special purpose communications networks in near real-time.
Rocket Artillery Mortar Warning (RAM WARN) has provided over 6000 timely warnings and has been credited with saving hundreds of lives in theater.
