Northrop Grumman’s MTC-X mobile ground-based solutions to get any data, any time, for any US Navy, Marine Corps mission.


Press Release, Aurora CO , 17 January 2024: Northrop Grumman Corporation continues to pioneer the latest mobile ground station technology for the frontline with its recently awarded Maritime Targeting Cell – Expeditionary (MTC-X) contract. This programme supports the Department of Defense’s strategy for its Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) mission to conduct multi-domain operations by providing critical data to the frontline.

The MTC-X mobile prototype system will:

  • Deliver multi-domain data for forward-deployed units and individual warfighters far from established bases;
  • Fully integrate data from multiple assets into a single mobile system;
  • Reduce sensor-to-shooter timelines and maximise the effectiveness of long-range precision fires; and
  • Allow for rapid assembly for quick and agile manoeuvrability with ground forces.

Pablo Pezzimenti, vice president, integrated national systems, Northrop Grumman: “We designed this innovative technology for warfighters in situations where mobility is crucial for mission execution. This platform provides the latest multi-domain data at their fingertips, allowing commanders to make the best decisions possible for any mission on land, air or sea.”

Details on MTC-X: The MTC-X mobile prototype development is a modification to an existing Maritime Targeting Cell – Afloat (MTC-A) programme’s Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The mobile prototype supports the U.S. Marine Corps Force Design 2030 by delivering information that enables critical decision-making for mission specific needs with resiliency.
