Northrop Grumman Corp's Astro Aerospace Receives Follow-On Order for 48 More JIB Antennas for GPS III Satellites


Wednesday, 17 Apr 2013 11:00am EDT 

Northrop Grumman Corp announced that it will provide 48 more self-deploying, monopole JIB antennas for Global Positioning System (GPS III) satellites under a follow-on contract from Lockheed Martin Corporation. The work will be carried out by Astro Aerospace, a strategic business unit of Northrop Grumman. With an adaptable design configuration, JIBs can be tailored to specific applications; they are available in monopole diameters from ½ inch to 1 3/8 inches and any length up to 25 feet. Each antenna stows in a compact 4-inch by 4-inch by 2.5-inch canister. The follow-on contract continues Northrop Grumman's support to the GPS satellite constellation, having delivered more than 1,000 JIB assemblies for the previous GPS IIF and GPS IIR spacecraft configurations. In 2011, the company delivered 16 JIB antennas for the first two GPS III satellites. The U.S. Air Force develops, maintains and operates the GPS, a constellation of over 24 satellites maintained on-orbit to provide worldwide navigational information. GPS III satellites are under development by an industry team led by Lockheed Martin in Newtown, Pa. The first GPS III is scheduled to join the on-orbit constellation in 2015.
