LONDON, March 15, 2010 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will be participating in the
Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) exhibition where it will
highlight its range of integrated global security capabilities including
critical infrastructure protection, command and control, surveillance and
intelligence, emergency services interoperability, counter terrorism and
border security.

The HOSDB exhibition is the UK's only secure event for displaying the
latest security equipment for law enforcement and public security. It focuses
on the four Home Office key business areas: crime and policing, security and
counter terrorism, identity management, and border security. The event takes
place from 16-18 March at FIVE, Farnborough.

"Northrop Grumman has a broad range of experience in national security
solutions from strategic and tactical command and control systems, to
situational awareness for defence and civil security applications, and
unmanned ground systems. This is matched by UK-based expertise, specialist
facilities and a proven track record of delivery to customers in the UK and
around the world," said Sir Nigel Essenhigh, chief executive for Northrop
Grumman's Information Systems sector in Europe. "The demonstrations and
presentations on our exhibit stand at HOSDB highlight Northrop Grumman's
world class knowledge and capabilities in national security and resilience."

Northrop Grumman UK will showcase a cross-section of its integrated
security solutions with equipment, displays and presentations of key

Using its Critical Incident Response System (CIRS), Northrop Grumman will
demonstrate its ability to integrate seamlessly a variety of national
security solutions into a common situational awareness display for crisis
management. CIRS combines the best hardware and software allowing commanders
to plan quickly and intuitively, engage and manage emergency situations and
complex events. The system's TouchTable(TM) enables group collaboration and
discovery at the local site, and remote information sharing over IP to any
other TouchTable(TM) or IP enabled device. This ensures that all emergency
services and first responders are working against the same information.

Featured also will be Northrop Grumman's leading capability in tactical
command and control systems including the software application Command and
Control for the PC (C2PC). In service in more than 40 countries with 100,000
users, C2PC provides a common tactical picture for operational command and
control, improving situational awareness and enhancing operational and
tactical decision making. C2PC provides the user interface/core functionality
for many operations command systems around the world including NATO's
Maritime Command & Control System (MCCIS), the UK MoD's Joint Operations
Command System (JOCS) and Royal Navy Command Support System (RNCSS).

Presentations will be available showing surveillance and intelligence
solutions based on the core capabilities provided by the Integrated Joint
Operational Command and Control system (I-JOCCS), an operational and tactical
level static and mobile headquarters C4I solution, and Integrated Tactical
Command and Control system (I-TaCCS) a land, sea and air and dismounted
soldier-based C4I solution.

Unmanned ground systems on display for hazardous operations will be
Wheelbarrow Mk 9, Caliber T5 and Eye-Drive robots for remote handling of
hazardous threats, tactical and surveillance operations. EyeDrive is an
observation and surveillance remote-controlled mini-robot that provides
continuous real-time 360-degree audio and video surveillance.

Northrop Grumman's capabilities in critical infrastructure, force
protection and border security will also be featured. Systems highlighted
will be Advanced Security and Integrated Systems Technology (ASIST) and the
Harbour and Coastal Security (HCS) system.

ASIST, deployed at more than 100 sites worldwide, provides enhanced
security situational awareness through the correlation of multiple
off-the-shelf sensors and cameras. It extends detection well beyond the
perimeter and can be integrated with existing systems to create a layered
approach to security. HCS integrates off-the-shelf computers, communications,
and sensors with sensor processing to provide a flexible, standards-based
command and control system.
