Northrop Grumman Taps EMS For EHF Contract Help
Atlanta-based EMS Technologies [ELMG] said its space and technology division was chosen by Northrop Grumman [NOC] to develop an Extremely High Frequency (EHF) Satellite Communication Antenna Systems for the U.S. Air Force’s B-2 Stealth Bomber. Northrop Grumman’s Integrated Systems sector is the B-2’s prime contractor.
The antenna system will allow worldwide, high-data-rate, military-satellite communications between the B-2, MILSTAR and Advanced EHF (AEHF) satellites.
The system design is based on antenna systems EMS developed and produced for commercial in-flight satellite entertainment.
