The Northrop Grumman AN/TPS-78 is the latest generation of state-of-the-art radars made possible by advances in high power transistor technology and designed to operate in some of the harshest, most unforgiving environments. Proven in the field, the S-Band long-range AN/TPS-78 is the choice of the U.S. Air Force and customers worldwide.

The AN/TPS-78 and TPS-703 radars are designed and proven to operate in some of the world’s harshest, most unforgiving environments. This outstanding survivability is achieved by combining unsurpassed mobility, unmatched sidelobe levels and innovative "cool" antenna technology.

There are no active radiating elements on the antenna, which provides a "cool" array to shield from the attacks of heat-seeking missiles.

"With this agreement, Northrop Grumman will bring its recognized leadership in ground radars together with our Indonesian business partners' combined expertise in electronics research and manufacturing and knowledge of the unique needs of the Indonesian government," said Robert Royer, vice president of international systems at Northrop Grumman's Land and Self Protection Systems Division. "Our team looks forward to participating in the upcoming Indonesian ground-based radar competition designed to help Indonesia increase air surveillance control and secure its border."
