PARIS, June 16, 2011 -

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

The 49th International Paris 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), the
Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) programme, Euro Hawk® 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. There will also be a
briefing on the Long Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle (LEMV)
lighter than air and heavy lift capability.  

Northrop Grumman representatives will also provide briefings on
the company’s Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar
solution to meet multi-mission 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.
