Title : BAMS
Description :

Broad Area Maritime Surveillance

Program Overview:

The United States Navy's Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) program will provide persistent maritime Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) data collection and dissemination capability to the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force (MPRF). The BAMS UAS will be a multi-mission system to support strike, signals intelligence, and communications relay as an adjunct to the MMA/P-3 community to enhance manpower, training and maintenance efficiencies worldwide.

The BAMS UAS, at full operational capability, will provide ISR persistence over large maritime distances for long periods of time for up to five simultaneous orbits worldwide. The BAMS UAS missions will include, but are not limited to, maritime surveillance, collection of enemy order of battle information, battle damage assessment, port surveillance, communication relay, and support of the following missions - maritime interdiction, surface warfare, battlespace management, and targeting for maritime and littoral strike missions.

The Navy requirements outline milestone B in late FY 2007, and based on a competitive system integrator selection process, the System Development & Demonstration (SDD) phase will begin in FY 2008. Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) is planned for FY 2011 with delivery supporting and Initial Operational Capability (IOC) in FY 2014.

The Northrop Grumman's NAVY BAMS Solution:

Our offering uses a maritime derivative of the RQ-4 along with Navy-specific ground stations. Northrop Grumman offers the best value for the BAMS mission - it's faster, travels farther, with longer time-on-station to provide more ISR information to more warfighters at a lower overall cost. Our BAMS solution is proven and ready now.

Northrop Grumman NAVY BAMS will have low total acquisition and system operating cost over the lifetime of the entire program. Our system will require fewer aircraft and personnel to do the mission, and a shorter logistical supply chain to support the objective. Northrop Grumman NAVY BAMS can deliver unprecedented long range, persistent maritime ISR capability to the warfighter now.

The high quality of Northrop Grumman NAVY BAMS reflects our 70 years of experience in the production of aircraft - including over 100,000 UAVs. The Northrop Grumman NAVY BAMS solution will expand maritime battlespace awareness and permit wide distribution of naval striking power, thereby achieving the Navy's Sea Power 21.
