Global Hawk
Members of the Aerial Surveillance Radars Branch at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass, which closed down in December 2020, began flight-testing the first production-ready Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program radars on the RQ-4 Global Hawk in 2011. After delivering MP-RTIP radars for use in similar NATO aircraft in late 2019, the team spent 2020 providing sustainment support to NATO, repurposing spare parts to other branches in the Theater Battle Control Division, and closing out all remaining contracts.
