“The Advanced Deep Space Radar Program will provide a resilient ground-based radar that will provide our nation with a significantly enhanced awareness of the geostationary space domain,” said Pablo Bizimenti, vice president of national integrated systems, Northrop Grumman.

“While existing ground systems operate at night and can be affected by weather conditions, the advanced deep space radar will provide all-weather, 24/7 capability to monitor the highly dynamic and rapidly evolving geosynchronous orbital environment critical to national and global security,” Bizimenti said. “.

The Advanced Deep Space Radar program will augment the military space observation network as an additional sensor with increased capacity and ability to monitor deep space objects and eventually provide complete global coverage. The Indian and the Pacific, which is expected to be completed in 2025, will also have a follow-up to two additional strategically placed sites around the world.
