Military Intelligence

The power to know, the knowledge to win

For more than 35 years, Northrop Grumman has helped supply the advanced intelligence information systems that support military strategy, planning, and missions for the United States and its alliance partners. These systems integrate the capabilities of space, air, marine, and terrestrial platforms and the full spectrum of intelligence sensors (IMINT, HUMINT, ELINT, SIGINT, COMINT, MASINT, RADINT, and Hyper/Multi-spectral).

Northrop Grumman's unsurpassed expertise and R&D capabilities in this arena are a major reason why the reach and effectiveness of military intelligence systems have come so far. Our solutions help monitor the activities and military posture of potential adversaries worldwide. And, they collect and fuse data into actionable information for Warfighters - information that delivers unprecedented battlefield awareness and supports powerful command and control capabilities.

Northrop Grumman's experience across all C4ISR domains enhances the quality of our solutions. We provide secure data and message handling among all elements of unified commands and joint forces. We offer industry-leading expertise in military weather systems. And finally, the expertise we gained as the lead developer of the Common Operating Environment helps assure interoperability with all U.S. and allied C4ISR environments - as well as national intelligence, law enforcement, and homeland security systems.

Program Experience

    For over 15 years, Northrop Grumman has set the standard in engineering support to the Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP). We have been instrumental in providing vital national intelligence systems and products to the Warfighter. Our support of TENCAP systems played a major role in the success of Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Somalia, and most recently, Operation Iraqi Freedom.
  • Blue Force Tracking (BFT)
    Our extensive involvement has fueled the development of this critical technology end-to-end - from the development of capabilities and architectures to processing, dissemination, and display. We currently play key roles in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
  • U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
    Northrop Grumman is one of the premier suppliers of research and development for military intelligence systems and technologies. This work produces wide-ranging results. For example, our applications of the Web-Enabled Temporal Analysis System (WebTAS), developed by Intelligent Software Systems, supports important operations in drug interdiction, combat intelligence, counter-terrorism, mission planning, and more.
  • NORAD/NORTHCOM
    We have a long history of proven performance for America's strategic defense program, furnishing information systems and services, as well as mission and architecture support.
  • U.S. Air Force
    Our experts developed USAF Cloud Depiction Forecast System to provide highly accurate forecasts critical to reconnaissance and strike mission planning, force employment, and battle damage assessment.
