Ansys Government Initiatives (AGI) is supporting Northrop Grumman in developing, testing and delivering a Deep-Space Advanced Radar Capability (DARC) in support of the U.S. Space Force (USSF) Space Systems Command (SSC) Space Domain Awareness mission.

Integrating Ansys' simulation and digital mission engineering solutions, Northrop Grumman created a high-fidelity, open digital twin prototype environment. Northrop Grumman will also use Ansys' products to examine radio frequency systems, perform mission-level analysis and leverage digital thread capabilities, the companies report.

“Ansys is honored to collaborate with DARC to support the digital design and validation of this critical U.S. national security system,” says Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “Our simulation and digital mission engineering solutions are proven to accelerate and optimize complex product development within leading engineering organizations throughout the world.”

This initial DARC contract includes the design, development and delivery of a Site 1 system, expected to be completed in 2025. The companies are also working together on two additional radar sites to be strategically positioned around the world.
