PARIS, June 2, 2011 -

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

The 49th Paris International Air Show will take place at Le Bourget,
Paris, from 20-26 June 2011.

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 schedule is as shown below.

All briefings will be held in the Northrop Grumman Media Centre. These
will include presentations on the company's Global Hawk high-altitude,
long-endurance unmanned aircraft system (UAS), Euro Hawk(R) UAS, a
state-of-the-art, high-altitude, long-endurance signals intelligence (SIGINT)
system, MQ-8B Fire Scout Vertical Unmanned Aircraft System (VUAS) and E-2D
Advanced Hawkeye manned aircraft. Fire Scout is a multi-role UAS that can
carry various payloads that provide unprecedented situational awareness and
precision targeting support. The Advanced Hawkeye is a game-changer for Navy
battle management command and control, with a two-generation leap in radar
sensor and robust network-enabled capability.

Northrop Grumman representatives will also provide briefings on the
company's Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar solution to meet
multi-missoin requirements for a variety of security challenges, and its
international Directed Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) capability. Northrop
Grumman is celebrating 50 years of IRCM programmes and 15 years of DIRCM
programmes in strategic partnership with SELEX Galileo. The company's
Rotorcraft Avionics Innovation Laboratory (RAIL) capabilities will also be
discussed, in addition to eCORE (Enhanced C4ISR Operationally Responsive
Enterprise), which uses commercial standards-based technologies to enable
rapid mission integration, deployment, support, training and maintenance.
