Northrop Grumman has unveiled its latest tactical command and control system applications and capabilities at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire, UK.

The BearClaw system is an integrated tactical command and control system specifically designed for long-range reconnaissance forces to provide them with a scalable command and control capability.

The system combines radio blue force tracking, VMF messaging, terrain analysis, planning tools, video capture and distribution to provide enhanced situational awareness to operators.

The BearClaw is used to locate injured men on the ground, help navigate through complex compounds, and to connect dispersed military units.

The system is also used to accurately guide wounded soldiers to the helicopter, locate safe pick up points and prevent friendly fire incidents in the battlefield.

The Supacat family of high mobility vehicles have been integrated with the tactical command and control software with rugged hardware and proven radio systems.
