LaBarge Awarded $2.6 Million Contract

Northrop Grumman Corp. awards LaBarge Inc. a $2.6 million contract to provide electronic subsystems for the Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array radar system.
The MESA radar is an advanced airborne surveillance radar system used in military aircraft with airborne early warning and control platforms.
Currently flying in the next-generation 737-700 series aircraft produced by the Boeing Co., the radar is mounted atop the fuselage and has a long detection range with a 360-degree electronic scan that can simultaneously track air and sea targets, covering the entire operational area with an integrated identification friend or foe mode.
The MESA radar allows the AEW&C aircraft to operate farther back from the battle lines while it detects and tracks targets in high threat areas.
