22 May 2015
Northrop Grumman Corporation (Northrop Grumman), incorporated on August 4, 2010, is a global security company. The Company provides systems, products and solutions in unmanned systems; cyber; command, control, communications and computers (C4), intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR); strike aircraft, and logistics and modernization to Government and commercial customers across the world. The Company operates through four segments: Aerospace Systems, Electronic Systems, Information Systems and Technical Services. It offers a portfolio of capabilities and technologies that enable it to deliver systems and solutions for applications. The Company participates in defense and Government programs in the United States and abroad. The Company conducts business with the United States Government, the Department of Defense (DoD) and intelligence community. The Company also conducts business with local, state, and foreign Governments and domestic and international commercial customers.
The Aerospace Systems segment is engaged in the design, development, integration and production of manned aircraft, unmanned systems, spacecraft, high-energy laser systems, microelectronics and other systems and subsystems. Aerospace Systems customers, which include the United States Government agencies, use these systems in mission areas, including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), communications, battle management, strike operations, electronic warfare, earth observation, satellite communications, space science and space exploration. The segment consists of four business areas: Unmanned Systems, Military Aircraft Systems, Space Systems, and Strategic Programs and Technology.
Unmanned Systems designs, develops, manufactures, and integrates ISR unmanned systems for tactical and strategic missions. Key ISR programs include the RQ-4 Global Hawk reconnaissance system, providing near real-time high resolution imagery of large geographical areas; the Triton aircraft system providing real-time ISR over vast ocean and coastal regions; the trans-Atlantic North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) system for multinational theater operations, peacekeeping missions, and disaster relief efforts; the Fire Scout aircraft system providing unprecedented situational awareness and precision targeting support; and the Navy Unmanned Combat Air System for the demonstration unmanned combat air vehicle for carrier-based operations, and the Common Mission Management System, providing service-based on ground control solutions enabling unmanned mission capabilities.
Military Aircraft Systems designs, develops, manufactures, and integrates airborne C4ISR, electronic warfare mission systems, and long range strike and tactical aircraft systems. Key airborne C4ISR programs include the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye and Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS). Electronic warfare includes the EA-18G Growler and EA-6B Prowler airborne electronic attack weapon systems in addition to the design, development, and integration of laser weapon systems for air, sea, and ground platforms. This business area also designs develops and manufactures the B-2 Spirit bomber. Tactical aircraft includes the design, development, manufacture and integration of F/A-18 aft sections and F-35 center sections.
Space Systems designs, develops, manufactures, and integrates spacecraft systems, subsystems, sensors and communications payloads in support of space science and C4ISR. Key programs include the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), a large infrared telescope being built for National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to study the origins of the universe; Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) payloads providing survivable, protected communications to the United States forces, and restricted programs.
Strategic Programs and Technology creates and matures advanced technologies and concepts to provide solutions addressing customer needs. The Strategic Programs and Technology business area maintains a portfolio of contracts ranging from development of components to prototypes to initial operational systems across the air, land and space domains.
The Electronic Systems segment designs, develops, manufactures and supports solutions for sensing, understanding, anticipating and controlling the operating environment for its global military, civil and commercial customers. Electronic Systems provides a variety of defense electronics and systems, airborne fire control radars, situational awareness systems, early warning systems, electronic warfare systems, air defense radars and management systems, navigation systems, communications systems, marine power and propulsion systems, space systems and logistics services. The segment consists of three business areas: Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems; Land and Self Protection Systems, and Navigation and Maritime Systems.
Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems delivers products and services for space satellite applications, airborne and ground-based surveillance, multi-sensor processing, analysis and dissemination for combat units and national agencies, both domestic and international. These systems provide battle space awareness, missile defense, command and control, combat avionics (fire control radars, multi-function apertures and pods), airborne electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) targeting systems and postal automation systems. Key programs include airborne fire control radars, such as the Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR), which provides affordable Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) capabilities for domestic and international fighters; the F-35 fire control radar, a multi-function AESA radar for the United States Armed Forces and a number of international partners; EO/IR systems, such as the LITENING targeting pod and the Distributed Aperture System (DAS), a 360 degree spherical situational awareness system; airborne surveillance radars, such as the Multirole Electronically Scanned Array (MESA) for Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW & C), which provides air-to-air and air-to-surface coverage, and space systems, such as the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS), which provides data for missile surveillance, missile defense, technical intelligence and battle space characterization.
Land and Self Protection Systems delivers products, systems and services that support ground-based, helicopter and fixed wing platforms (manned and unmanned) with sensor and prot
