NORTHROP GRUMMAN'S RECENTLY ACQUIRED Electronic Sensors and Systems division could earn nearly $100 million over the next five years in upgrading the reliability of the APY-1 and -2 radars used on the US Air Force's Boeing E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. Since 1977, the former Westinghouse division, which was recently acquired by Northrop Grumman, has produced 68 AWACS radars, half of which have been for the US Air Force.
