Northrop Grumman Corp.’s modular panel-based sensor has completed its first flight, the company said. The flight took place at its test facility in Baltimore.

The solution is an open architecture, multi-function surveillance system. During its maiden flight, Northrop Grumman said it “performed with exceptional stability” and conducted successful ground moving target indicator (GMTI) and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) map modes.

“Northrop Grumman is focused on equipping the warfighter for today as well as the battlespace of the future,” said Paul Kalafos, VP of Surveillance Systems and Electronic Maneuver Warfare for Northrop Grumman. “As mission requirements change, our open architecture sensor is easily adapted to remain the best tool for the mission.”
