Northrop Grumman has conducted integration and testing of its Scorpion II unattended target recognition system and the lightweight AN/ZPY-1 STARLite tactical radar.

During the five-day event, the company tested the advanced technologies to demonstrate digital interoperability related to ground vehicle protection and situational awareness.

The STARLite radar was tested from a fixed tower in multiple scanning modes to track individuals and moving vehicles.

The STARLite system, equipped with a complete software package, enables the operator to provide situational awareness and security to troops and coalition forces in theatre.

The radar also provides precise battlefield intelligence to support tactical operations in all weather conditions.

The other systems that were tested include the Smart Integrated Vehicle Area Network (SiVAN) and vehicle-mounted sensors.
