March 07, 1998

The local division of Northrop Grumman Corp. has won a $20.8 million contract to build 18 special radar units for the Army.

The Tactical Endurance Synthetic Aperture Radar (TESAR) systems fly on small, unmanned drones. The TESAR can see objects as small as a foot across through clouds and weather.

The Electronic Sensors & Systems Division of Northrop Grumman, based in Linthicum, has built 18 such units under prior contracts, and some of the systems have been deployed during the Bosnia peacekeeping mission.
