LONDON, June 23, 2010 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is exhibiting at the UK Ministry
of Defence (MoD) event for land equipment and battlefield infrastructure, DVD
2010, where it will highlight its tactical command and control system
applications for long-range reconnaissance forces and its capabilities in
unmanned ground vehicles.

DVD is the UK MoD Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) annual stakeholder
event for land equipment and joint supply chain communities. It brings
together the armed forces, the defence industry and the acquisition
community, to showcase the equipment and support that is critical to the
success of the UK's armed forces.

DVD takes place from 23-24 June at Millbrook Proving Ground,

"Our proven capabilities in command and control technologies are
enhancing situational awareness for ground troops and creating real effect in
operational environments," said David Taylor, managing director, C4I,
Northrop Grumman Information Systems Europe. "DVD allows us to demonstrate
how our systems can be incorporated into land vehicles to provide the Armed
Forces with operational benefits on the battlefield."

Northrop Grumman will highlight its BearClaw command and control system.

The BearClaw system is the special operations-focused part of Northrop
Grumman's Integrated Tactical Command and Control System (I-TaCCS) framework
of command and control solutions. These systems have been built using the
tactical Command and Control for the PC (C2PC) software that has been in
service with world leading long range reconnaissance forces for the last 2
1/2 years and have been credited with providing real effect in theatre.

The system has been used to pinpoint injured men on the ground, help
navigate through complex buildings and compounds, and enable dispersed units
to link up after ambushes. It has also enabled wounded men and ground troops
under fire to be guided accurately and rapidly to pick up points where
helicopters have extracted them to safety. The system has also been credited
with preventing a number of friendly fire incidents on the ground and from
the air.

The Northrop Grumman BearClaw architecture is designed to provide special
operations personnel with a scalable command and control capability. It
provides operators and commanders with enhanced situational awareness through
a combination of radio blue force tracking (RBFT), VMF messaging, terrain
analysis, planning tools, video capture and distribution.

Northrop Grumman has integrated its tactical command and control software
with rugged hardware and proven radio systems into the SUPACAT family of high
mobility vehicles. This has been carried out to provide a simple, robust,
compact, easily reconfigured solution to allow vehicles to be adapted for
different operations. A system suitable for mounting on a SUPACAT Jackal
vehicle will be unveiled at DVD. This provides a one stop solution for all
long range reconnaissance and manoeuvre roles for SUPACAT platform users. The
system will be available to customers operating over a variety of radio
systems and can be adapted for other bearers if required along with other
vehicle types.

Also featured will be the latest technology in unmanned ground vehicle
systems for remote handling of hazardous threats and materials including bomb
disposal and tactical and surveillance operations. On display will be the new
and improved Wheelbarrow Mk9 and the medium and small-sized Caliber MK 3 and
T5 unmanned ground vehicles. These provide a range of remote capabilities for
law enforcement and special operations forces as well as bomb disposal
operations. Also demonstrated will be the company's new integrated CBRNe
sensor suite on the Wheelbarrow Mk9 vehicle.

Northrop Grumman has a well established presence in the UK and operates
