Northrop Grumman's E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System

Northrop Grumman's E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) aircraft program can provides wide area surveillance covering more than 50,000 square kilometers and detect objects moving at a wide variety of speeds.



The system's expanded capabilities were recently demonstrated in a major coalition exercise in Korea. Its aircrews received their sixth consecutive battle management award. "These are significant examples of the system's battle management capabilities, and illustrates its ability to adapt to the needs of the warfighter," said Dale Burton, vice president for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and battle management command and control for Northrop.
