Triton is a maritime version of the combat-proven Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system. Developed for the U.S. Navy, Triton can fly missions for 24 hours at altitudes more than 10 miles, allowing the system to cover vast areas of ocean and coastal regions. The Navy developed its future concept for maritime patrol using Triton in conjunction with the P-8 Poseidon, a manned surveillance platform that has also been purchased by the Indian Navy. Northrop Grumman produces the AN/ALQ-240(V)1 Electronic Support Measures system, the early warning self-protection system, and the embedded global positioning and inertial navigation system for the P-8A.
Northrop Grumman is developing the LEMV long-endurance hybrid airship system for the U.S. Army. This system is designed to be optionally manned, providing the flexibility to operate with or without a crew onboard and offers persistent surveillance with reconfigurable payloads to meet emerging multimission needs. The first fight of the LEMV was successfully completed in August 2012.
