Northrop Grumman has been selected by the Royal Thai Air Force to supply additional AN/TPS-78 air defense and surveillance radar systems.
Under the terms of the contract, Northrop Grumman will begin supplying equipment to the Royal Thai Air Force in 2015. The company will also provide training, spares and logistics support.
The Northrop Grumman AN/TPS-78 is among the latest generation of highly mobile, state-of-the-art radars made possible by advances in high power transistor technology and designed to operate in some of the harshest, most demanding environments. The radar has proven particularly adept at detecting small targets in areas of difficult land and sea clutter, making it well suited for use in mountainous and coastal regions.
The S-Band, long-range AN/TPS-78 is in use with the U.S. Air Force and a variety of customers worldwide.
