CANBERRA (BNS): The Australian Defence Materiel Organisation has awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation a contract to provide integrated airfield and asset protection solutions for the Royal Australian Air Force C-17 aircraft.

Northrop Grumman will deliver its Expeditionary Tactical Automated Security System (ExTASS) for the protection of the Australian C-17s while at home air stations and during expeditionary operations.

ExTASS is an implementation of the Tactical Automated Security System (TASS), deployed at more than 100 sites worldwide by the US Air Force, US Army and US Marine Corps.

Like TASS, ExTASS is an open architecture, command-and-control platform for the integration of a variety of sensors designed for force-protection missions.

The system provides for real-time detection and assessment of intrusions, thus allowing immediate coordination of appropriate response. The ExTASS will be configured in a mobile trailer for quick deployment.
