Northrop Grumman Corporation AN/ZPY-1 STARLite Small Tactical Radar - Lightweight

Description
Lightweight, affordable precision surveillance The AN/ZPY-1 STARLite is a small, lightweight SAR/GMTI/DMTI radar used for supporting tactical operations. Developed by Northrop Grumman, STARLite is now under contract to the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command for the MQ-1C Gray Eagle. It is a potential sensor for the Navy MQ-8C Fire Scout-C class IV-UAS program. STARLite offers superior performance at low cost. Weighing 39-65 pounds, this compact radar system is ideal for equipping a variety of manned and unmanned aerial system platforms for mission-critical tactical reconnaissance, including: Through-the-weather surveillance Stationary and moving target detection and tracking Maritime search Dismounted personnel detection Flexible modes for tactical reconnaissance: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) Dismount Moving Target Indicator (DMTI, in development) Maritime Moving Target Indicator (MMTI) UAS sensor experience STARLite builds on Northrop Grumman's experience in creating the proven AN/ZPQ-1 Tactical Endurance Synthetic Aperture Radar (TESAR), which was deployed on the U.S. Air Force Predator UAV and the Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Radar (TUAVR). By providing precise battlefield intelligence in all types of weather and in battlefield obscurants, day and night, STARLite significantly improves battlefield situational awareness and optimizes force maneuver and engagement for mission success.
