Who We Are in Australia

Northrop Grumman is proud of its established relationship with the Commonwealth of Australia and is committed to enhancing its business and geographic footprint in country. We have a strong customer base in Australia and have been supporting a variety of defence and civil programmes here for more than 20 years.

As a leading provider and integrator of autonomous, C4ISR, cyber, logistics and strike systems and solutions, Northrop Grumman works with Australia’s Defence Force to ensure border and Pacific-region security and mission success.

Northrop Grumman is deeply committed to growing its investment in Australia through partnerships and acquisitions. In addition to Qantas Defence Services (now Northrop Grumman Australia – Technology Services), Northrop Grumman acquired M5 Network Security (now Australian Intelligence & Cyber Solutions), a Canberra-based provider of cyber security and secure mobile communications.
