Northrop Grumman has been awarded a three-year, $36 million contract to improve the Army’s Joint Tactical Ground Station missile warning system.

The company will provide two prototype JTAGS pre-planned product improvement (P3I) systems, according to a Northrop Grumman announcement.

“This contract begins the development phase of the JTAGS P3I program, bringing us closer to delivering improved missile warning for our warfighters,” said Ed Bush, vice president of Northrop Grumman’s C4ISR Networked Systems division.

JTAGS P3I will replace the original JTAGS, which is a relocatable information processing system for in-theater, infrared data downlinked from the Defense Support Program, Space Based Infrared System and other satellites. JTAGS is designed to disseminate warnings on tactical ballistic missile strikes and other tactical events. The JTAGS P3I upgrade will feature improved performance and the ability to process data from additional sensors, Northrop Grumman said.
