LONDON, July 7, 2010 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will highlight its industry
leading global security capabilities at the Farnborough International Air
show, including unmanned aircraft systems, defence electronics and
performance-based logistics.

The Farnborough International Air show will take place from 19-25 July

Northrop Grumman's open-air static display area will feature a full-scale
model of the Global Hawk high altitude long endurance unmanned aircraft
system (UAS) and a full-sized model of the MQ-8B Fire Scout Vertical Unmanned
Aircraft System (VUAS). Fire Scout is a multi-role UAS that can carry various
payloads, which provide unprecedented situational awareness and precision
targeting support, ideal for land and navy forces.

The company's Italian subsidiary will also be represented at the air show
at stand location H1/D16f. Northrop Grumman Italia will display its
state-of-the-art fibre-optic navigation systems, including the LISA-200, the
Navex family of attitude heading reference systems and LN 251 / LN 270 high
accuracy inertial navigation systems and the newly developed Navinex inertial
navigation system. Aircraft equipped with Northrop Grumman Italia systems
include the Eurofighter Typhoon and many other fixed wing and rotary wing
aircraft in service in various parts of the world.

Northrop Grumman will participate in a series of media briefings during
the air show covering a range of its capabilities, including unmanned
systems, defence electronics, C4ISR, sustainment and life cycle optimization
and engineering. The outline media briefing programme is as shown below. All
briefings will be held in the Northrop Grumman Media Centre.

In addition, during the air show Northrop Grumman will formally present a
DIRCM transmitter to the Royal Air Force Museum to mark the 15th anniversary
of the UK Ministry of Defence development contract undertaken by SELEX
Galileo and Northrop Grumman to develop and produce the first ever,
life-saving infrared countermeasures technology widely used on RAF aircraft
in combat today.

Full details of these media events and briefings can be found on the
company's online media kit at . This site
will also contain regularly updated information, including briefing
schedules, news releases and programme news. During the first half of the
week, each day's key activities will be summarised by Northrop Grumman
personnel in a Web journal called "News from the Flightline".
