Northrop Grumman Highlights Global Intelligence, Surveillance And Reconnaissance Capabilities At Australian International Air Show

CANBERRA, Australia, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will highlight a range of its key capabilities and programmes at the Australian International Air Show, including unmanned aircraft systems; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); radars and sensor systems; and infrared countermeasures.

The air show takes place at Avalon Airport, Geelong, Australia, Feb. 26-March 3. Northrop Grumman's exhibit in the U.S. pavilion is at 3C 12 in Hall C and the company's business centre is located on the flight line at N11. In addition, a full-scale Triton unmanned aircraft system (UAS) model can be seen in the outside display area at EN-E3.

"Northrop Grumman is committed to providing affordable capabilities in C4ISR, unmanned systems, cybersecurity and logistics that will allow the Australian Defence Force to carry out vital operations in country and overseas," said David Perry, corporate vice president and chief global business development officer, Northrop Grumman. "We have a well-established presence in Australia, and continue to build broad partnerships with industry and educational institutions to help us grow a strong defence and security enterprise. The Australian International Air Show provides us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the breadth of our capabilities and our industry leadership."

Northrop Grumman's airborne surveillance capability will be highlighted with models of the Triton UAS and Fire Scout unmanned helicopter display.

"Triton is an ideal high-altitude unmanned aircraft system for Australia. The system can fly missions for 24 hours at altitudes of more than 10 miles, allowing the system to cover vast areas of ocean and coastal regions. It is also an ideal national security asset, capable of performing a wide array of civilian roles, such as responding to natural disasters, bushfires, environmental monitoring and drug interdiction in addition to its considerable military capabilities," said Perry.

Triton is a derivative of the combat-proven Global Hawk unmanned aircraft for maritime surveillance. Its unique suite of sensors allows the multimission ISR system to provide a continuous on-station presence for some of the most demanding surveillance missions. The system's radar, known as the Multi-Function Active Sensor, allows the Triton to monitor a full 360-degree field of view – spotlighting a geographic area of interest for longer periods to increase the system's capability to detect smaller targets.
