Falls Church, VA

Northrop Grumman Corporation has integrated and employed an internal miniature electronic attack payload on the Bat unmanned aircraft, marking the first time that such a system was used in operation on a Group III (small, tactical) system.

The Pandora electronic attack capacity, integrated in less than two months, is a low-cost derivative of Northrop Grumman's upgraded digital APR-39 systems. The lightweight, multifunction payload provides electronic attack, support, and protection. Northrup Grumman showcased the system’s capabilities late last year in a demonstration that involved the jamming of radars during the Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron One (MAWTS-1) Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) event at Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, CA.

Bat is a tactical, runway-independent, unmanned aircraft that can be launched from land or sea. Its flexible design allows for quick installation of a variety of payloads and enables rapid, expeditionary deployment. During a 2013 Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) event, the Bat completed multiple flights in collaboration with fixed wing and other unmanned platforms.
