Northrop Grumman Corporation is highlighting key Naval aviation capabilities and programs during 2018 Sea-Air-Space, the largest maritime exposition in the U.S., taking place April 9-11 at the Gaylord National Convention Center, National Harbor, Md.

In its booth, #2105, the company is featuring some of the game changing technologies that are helping the U.S. Navy and its allies maintain global maritime superiority, including:

  • AQS-24 Minehunter: The only deployed and operationally proven, high-speed airborne mine hunting system available – provides high-resolution, side scan sonar for real-time detection, localization and classification of bottom and moored mines at high coverage areas.
  • The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye: The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the U.S. Navy’s primary airborne early warning and battle management command and control platform. The E-2D has undergone a significant transformation from previous E-2 variants, resulting in advanced capabilities, including aerial refueling to increase combat persistence.
  • MQ-4C Triton: An unmanned aircraft system with an autonomous capability that provides real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance over vast ocean and coastal regions. In November 2017, Northrop Grumman delivered the first operational MQ-4C Triton aircraft to the U.S. Navy.
  • MQ-8C Fire Scout: A combat proven, autonomous helicopter system that provides real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance target-acquisition.

Whether we are building the most advanced, capable airborne early warning aircraft in the world, an airborne communications node or a lightweight, but extremely precise radar, Northrop Grumman is proud to contribute to the success of the U.S. Navy.
