Northrop Grumman Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northrop Grumman Corporation, is excited to showcase the company’s array of next-generation capabilities at the 2017 Australian International Airshow and Defence Exposition at Avalon from Feb. 28 to Mar. 5.
With the recent announcement that the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) first EA-18G Growler and F-35A Lightning II will make their debut at Avalon, Northrop Grumman, as a key industry partner, is prepared to support the development and sustainment of these advanced capabilities for the RAAF.
Returning to Avalon this year will be full scale models of Northrop Grumman’s advanced autonomous maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems: the MQ-4C Triton and MQ-8C Fire Scout. Both systems are being considered for Australia’s future defence requirements and will significantly improve the Commonwealth’s broad area and tactical maritime surveillance and intelligence capabilities.
