Northrop Grumman Corporation has announced an agreement to collaborate with Trex Enterprises Corporation to bring celestial navigation technology to the precision targeting capability provided to the U.S. military and allied forces.
Trex Enterprises has developed and matured the core technology for providing a highly accurate celestial navigation subsystem for use in military products and scientific applications. Northrop Grumman has entered into a licensing agreement with Trex Enterprises that allows Northrop Grumman to produce and integrate this celestial navigation capability into ground targeting systems which offers greater precision in locating targets.
“The integration of celestial navigation technology marks an important milestone on the precision targeting technology roadmap,” said Gordon Stewart, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman’s Laser Systems business unit. “We will continue to refine and grow the application of celestial navigation for precision targeting across our production laser systems for U.S. and coalition warfighters.”
Northrop Grumman has successfully completed formal qualification for its ground soldier targeting system with the celestial navigation enhancement and is delivering systems to support the immediate needs of deployed soldiers.
