LONDON, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is participating in the Seoul International Aerospace and Defence Exhibition (ADEX) where it will highlight the company's global security capabilities and programmes, including its world leading capabilities in unmanned aircraft systems and radar technologies.
The Seoul ADEX takes place 29 October – 3 November at the KINTEX exhibition Centre. The Northrop Grumman chalet is located at CH 1-2 and the exhibit stand is located at H9-H9 in the exhibit hall.
Northrop Grumman's airborne surveillance capability will be highlighted with a full-scale model of the RQ-4 Global Hawk high-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aircraft system on display. The combat-proven Global Hawk carries a variety of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensor payloads that allow military commanders to gather imagery and use radar to detect moving or stationary targets on the ground. The system also provides airborne communications and information sharing capabilities to military units in harsh environments."We have strong, well-established business relationships across the region and participating in the Seoul ADEX provides us with an opportunity to continue our dialogue not just with our customers, but also with other key stakeholders," said David Perry, corporate vice president and chief global business development officer, Northrop Grumman. "We have considerable capabilities to offer and our objective is to continue to work closely with our customers to provide long-term solutions and help enhance defence and national security in the region." The Northrop Grumman exhibit will feature the company's industry-leading Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar technology. Models of the corporation's family of AESA fire control radars including the AN/APG-81, AN/APG-80 and the Scaled Agile Beam Radar (SABR), the newest multifunction AESA radar, will be on display. The exhibit will also include an AH-1Z helicopter cockpit demonstrator which will highlight the capability of Northrop Grumman's Integrated Avionics System (IAS) that powers the glass cockpits of H-1 helicopters. Mission computers provide centralized control of the IAS, interface with the tactical moving map and display both situational awareness and health monitoring information. Additionally, the IAS and mission computers feature an open, modular architecture that allows for system upgrades and insertion of new technologies. Critical mission data is shown on four displays, reducing workload and increasing aircrew situational awareness.
