The US Air Force has received the first production Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP) sensor from Northrop Grumman for integration on the first Block 40 Global Hawk.

The MP-RTIP technology will provide critical coverage for the warfighter and can detect multiple stopped, slow and fast-moving objects on the ground.

The capability, combined with the endurance of the Block 40 Global Hawk, provides the warfighter with more than 30 hours of situational awareness and combat identification per mission.

The Global Hawk’s range, endurance and large payload capabilities are well suited to provide persistent surveillance with MP-RTIP.

The first MP-RTIP Global Hawk flight is scheduled to occur by early 2011.
