Northrop Grumman’s Mobile Ground-Based Solutions For US Department of Defense

Northrop Grumman Corporation continues to pioneer the latest mobile ground station technology for the frontline with its recently awarded Maritime Targeting Cell – Expeditionary (MTC-X) contract. This program supports the Department of Defense’s strategy for its Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) mission to conduct multi-domain operations by providing critical data to the frontline. The MTC-X mobile prototype system will:
Deliver multi-domain data for forward-deployed units and individual warfighters far from established bases;
Fully integrate data from multiple assets into a single mobile system;
Reduce sensor-to-shooter timelines and maximize the effectiveness of long-range precision fires; and
Allow for rapid assembly for quick and agile maneuverability with ground forces.

Pablo Pezzimenti, vice president, integrated national systems, Northrop Grumman: “We designed this innovative technology for warfighters in situations where mobility is crucial for mission execution. This platform provides the latest multi-domain data at their fingertips, allowing commanders to make the best decisions possible for any mission on land, air or sea.”

The MTC-X mobile prototype development is a modification to an existing Maritime Targeting Cell – Afloat (MTC-A) program’s Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The mobile prototype supports the U.S. Marine Corps Force Design 2030 by delivering information that enables critical decision-making for mission specific needs with resiliency.
