Who We Are in the Middle East


Northrop Grumman has continued to grow its presence and expand the support it offers to customers, industry partners and universities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other Middle East countries for more than 45 years.

Northrop Grumman sold the F-5 Tiger tactical fighter jet to the Royal Saudi Air Force in 1971. In addition to providing the Longbow Fire Control Radars for the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter, the company has been heavily involved in the training and development of Saudi military personnel, most notably providing technology services for the Ministry of the National Guard. In addition, Northrop Grumman works with Aramco on strategic site advanced protection.

In the United Arab Emirates, Northrop Grumman has been a leading provider of capabilities and technologies in defence, security, and communications, for example, the company is a key subcontractor for the UAE Air Force's F-16 Block 60 Desert Falcon.
