LONDON, July 1, 2011 -

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is participating in the
Brunei International Defence Exhibition (BRIDEX) where it will
highlight its capabilities as a leading systems integrator in
Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence,
Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), security and resilience
technology, unmanned ground systems and cyber security.  

BRIDEX is one of the premier defence and security events in
South East Asia and takes place from 6-9 July 2011 at the BRIDEX
International Conference Centre, Jerudong, Negara Brunei
Darussalam. The Northrop Grumman exhibit is at location W-07.

“Northrop Grumman has leading-edge capabilities in national
security solutions from tactical command and control systems, and
situational awareness for defence and civil security applications,
to the management of hazardous incidents and unmanned systems. This
is matched by U.K.-based expertise, specialist facilities and a
proven track record of delivery to customers around the world,”
said Paul Davison vice president and managing director Northrop
Grumman Information Systems Europe. “We look forward to this
opportunity to profile a range of the company’s products and
systems that can help serve the needs of the tri-services of the
Royal Brunei Armed Forces, the Royal Brunei Police Force and other
government enforcement agencies as well as the National Disaster
Management Centre.”

The Northrop Grumman exhibit will feature the company’s tactical
command and control systems, Integrated Tactical Command and
Control Services (I-TaCCS) and Integrated Joint Operational Command
and Control Services (I-JOCCS). The core software component of
I-TaCCS is used around the world and is in service in more than 40
countries with 100,000 users. Presentations will be available on
these systems.

Northrop Grumman UK is providing the JOC C4ISR capability for
the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF). This includes the supply of a
C4ISR headquarters system and a deployable JOC together with
training and in-country support.

Highlighted will be Northrop Grumman’s capabilities in cyber
security and the federated cyber security test range and its
application for resilience testing of large scale networks, cyber
diagnostics and cyber team training. In October 2010, Northrop
Grumman opened the U.K.’s only commercially available federated
cyber security test range at its Fareham, U.K. facility.
 Northrop Grumman will discuss cyber warfare at the BRIDEX
Conference on 5 July and will hold a series of cyber security
familiarisation seminars during the show. These will take place

Polo Club.      

The exhibit will feature the company’s new man-portable
capability for the monitoring of Chemical Biological Radiological
and Nuclear (CBRN) incidents and the collection and handling of
related data. The Integrated Tactical Rapid Assessment of CBRN
Environments (I-TRACE) system facilitates decision support and
enhances situational awareness and information sharing among
emergency response organizations. Analysed data is provided to
users through a web portal. I-TRACE requires no specialist vehicle
installation and can be rapidly deployed using existing “blue
light” emergency services vehicles.

Northrop Grumman’s biometric data capture and information search
capability for rapid identity management will also be on display.
BioTRAC is an electronic mobile scanning system integrated with a
ruggedized laptop computer which enables fingerprint, face and iris
