“Northrop Grumman’s groundbreaking technology can help the Army realize its vision of deep-sensing with the ability to identify, monitor, target and strike threats from farther distances and with greater precision. We are supporting the warfighter’s targeting needs with intelligence collection beyond line of site and leveraging aerial assets in providing multi-domain fused data directly to the front lines,” said Pablo Pezzimenti, vice president, integrated national systems, Northrop Grumman.
DSaT is a multi-domain deep-sensing architecture integrated into a civilian aircraft, providing intelligence collection that reaches beyond the visual line of sight of local sensors. While leveraging elements of the TITAN pre-prototype system, its capability fills a gap in data collection by combining space-based geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) imagery with aerial and terrestrial intelligence from commercial and military space systems.
Phase 1 successfully demonstrated the GEOINT capabilities with future phases planned incorporating multiple intelligence platforms.
