Northrop Grumman Corporation is partnering with Palantir USG, Inc. on the newly awarded Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node (TITAN) ground system for the U.S. Army. The program supports one of the Army’s key modernization imperatives by using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to enhance the automation of target recognition and geolocation and integrate data from multiple sensors to reduce sensor-to-shooter timelines. Northrop Grumman will partner to lead design maturation of the TITAN Advanced and Basic vehicle shelters leveraging its capabilities in complex, forward-deployed ground systems. Palantir was selected as the preferred vendor after a competitive prototyping phase, in which it delivered a TITAN Advanced prototype based on operational requirements and user feedback from Soldier Touch Points. The prototypes were evaluated at a capstone demonstration during the competition.

Aaron Dann, vice president, strategic force programs, Northrop Grumman: “Northrop Grumman’s extensive experience in large-scale system integration will help enable mission success and provide information superiority for our warfighters in complex operating environments. Our work on TITAN continues our long history of supporting our nation’s need for actionable intelligence when and where it matters most.”

TITAN is a ground system that has access to space, high altitude, aerial, and terrestrial sensors to provide actionable targeting information for enhanced mission command. TITAN will enable the Army to fuse, correlate, and integrate intelligence data from a rapidly expanding series of sensors providing operational forces a full picture of their surroundings. This robust capability allows real-time decision making that will substantially increase the accuracy, precision, and effects of long-range precision fires. TITAN is the U.S. Army’s next-generation Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ground station, leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to rapidly process sensor data received from Space, High Altitude, Aerial and Terrestrial layers.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is an American multinational aerospace and defense technology company. With 95,000 employees and an annual revenue in excess of $30 billion, it is one of the world’s largest weapons manufacturers and military technology providers. The company pioneering solutions equip customers with the capabilities they need to connect and protect the world, and push the boundaries of human exploration across the universe. Northrop Grumman organized its business around four main sectors, each of which comprises two or more business areas:
Aeronautics Systems, Defense Systems, Mission Systems and Space Systems.

The TITAN ground system will enable faster decision making on the frontlines by providing actionable intelligence to reduce sensor-to-shooter timelines and maximize effectiveness of long-range fires.
