STK modeling helps save nearly $300M on U.S. Marine Corps radar system acquisition costs

By: sclaypoole
The U.S. Marine Corps recently conducted a Counterbattery Radar study to determine how many new G/ATOR radar systems could replace the aging Firefinder system while better supporting Marine Air-Ground Task Force operations. Using STK modeling, the team performed comparative analysis and found that only 28 G/ATORS, instead of the planned for 38, would be required. This analysis has saved the Marines an estimated $290 million in procurement costs, as well as manpower savings that could be used to reduce the force or be allocated to other functional areas.
