Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) will head “down under“ to show off a wide range of its key capabilities, including unmanned aircraft systems, intelligence, and surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities at the Australian International Air Show.
The five-day air show takes place at Avalon near Geelong, Victoria starting March 1. Northrop Grumman will display its exhibit in the U.S. pavilion and a full-scale, reconfigurable Global Hawk will be on display outside.
The event marks the 10th anniversary of Global Hawk’s first nonstop international flight from Edwards Air Force Base in California to Edinburgh near Adelaide.
“The Australian Air Show provides an excellent opportunity for Northrop Grumman to meet with the Australian Defense Force, regional customers and partners to discuss how best to respond to current and emerging needs,” said John Brooks, president of Northrop Grumman International and vice president of business development for Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector.
“Our ISR and security capabilities across the company are well matched to meeting the region’s growing defense and security requirements,” he added.
