Guardrail For Army Ground Components Fielded By Northrop Grumman

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has successfully fielded Guardrail Ground Baseline (GGB) 2.0 hardware and software to U.S. Army military intelligence battalions, standardizing Guardrail ground components across the service. GGB 2.0 provides common hardware and software and eliminates obsolete equipment, thus improving operations, supportability, deployability and maintenance of the Army's RC-12 Guardrail Common Sensor aircraft ground component. GGB's network-based architecture supports forward garrison operators and rear operators via satellite link, as well as cooperative operations with other signals intelligence sensors. GGB 2.0 delivers enhanced data processing capabilities for signal analysis and command and control of the RC-12 Guardrail payload. Guardrail detects, identifies and locates ground-based radar and communication signals. The GGB 2.0 effort is a shared accomplishment of Army Project Manager-Aerial Common Sensors, Fort Monmouth, New Jersey; U.S. Army Intelligence and Signal Command (INSCOM), Fort Belvoir, Virginia; Northrop Grumman; L3 Communications-ILEX Systems, Eatontown, New Jersey; CACI Technologies Inc., Arlington, Virginia; and L3-Communication Systems West, Salt Lake City.
