BALTIMORE - The U.S. Army selected Northrop Grumman Corporation's Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) to demonstrate its multi-mission capability at the 2017 counter-rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) test at Yuma Proving Ground earlier this year.

HAMMR incorporates an Active Electronically Scanned Array fighter radar mounted on a ground vehicle or towable trailer to provide continuous 360-degree protection against multiple ground and airborne targets - all while operating on-the-move so soldiers on the ground can maintain their operational pace without sacrificing protection.

HAMMR is a multi-mission sensor that provides the warfighter with situational awareness, counter-fire operations, air defense, early warning, and airspace management capabilities. During this test, the system successfully detected and identified Groups I and II unmanned aerial systems, providing real-time situational awareness to the operator. HAMMR also validated its ability to connect to the Army's Forward Area Air Defense command and control system, which enables the communication of information from the system back to the force.

HAMMR incorporates an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) fighter radar mounted on a ground vehicle or towable trailer to provide continuous 360-degree protection against multiple ground and airborne targets - all while operating on-the-move so soldiers on the ground can maintain their operational pace without sacrificing protection. The modular self-contained system includes on-board prime power and cooling, AESA and radar electronics, and operator/maintainer display modules. These modules support multiple packaging concepts, making HAMMR easily adaptable to multiple vehicle types, fixed installations and C2 interfaces.

"HAMMR is the only AESA radar out there today that can support our maneuver forces' on-the-move multi-mission operation," said Roshan Roeder, vice president, mission solutions, Northrop Grumman. "Since HAMMR shares common hardware with our fighter aircraft radars, our customers realize the cost advantages of high-volume AESA production and benefit from the inherent reliability of this mature, proven technology."

STRIDSFORDON 90'S FUTURE RESTS WITH MODERNIZATION

NEWTOWN, Conn. - The center of gravity for the BAE Systems Hägglunds Stridsfordon 90 tracked armored vehicle program remains the modernization and resale of existing vehicle inventories.

However, new-build serial production of upgraded CV90 series vehicles is ongoing for Norwegian Army procurement, and the prime contractor continues to actively market the series for potential export.

The Stridsfordon 90 family of vehicles has found considerable success on the European defense market, particularly among customers in Scandinavia and the Low Countries.

A considerable number of CV90 series sales are likely to be drawn from surplus vehicle stocks. However, the tentative progress made toward economic recovery within the eurozone, and growing regional anxiety over the course of Russia's military intervention in Eastern Ukraine and expanding military presence in the continent's far north, may prove sufficient to spur a small quantity of new-build orders.

In April 2012, Norway awarded BAE Systems a $1.7 billion contract to upgrade Norway's CV9030 inventories to the CV90 Mk III standard. The contract also calls for the service's current inventory of CV90 vehicles to be supplemented by the acquisition of an additional 41 new-build CV90 Mk III vehicles. After a period of trials and testing with the retrofitted models, BAE Systems marked the launch of new-build serial production in March 2015 with the delivery of the first serial-production unit to the Norwegian Army. All 41 new-build vehicles are scheduled for delivery by 2018.

According to BAE Systems, the new-build vehicles are to be manufactured at a newly established production line at the company's Örnsköldsvik facility in Sweden.
