C4ISR


What is C4ISR?

C4ISR, or Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, brings together arguably the most important elements of the infrastructure of global national security into a single, memorable term. C4ISR can be defined as the web of platforms, payloads, sensors and other systems that inform and connect warfighters and first responders.



C4ISR: An Ugly Acronym for a Key to Global Security

Perhaps it was someone's dark sense of humor, but whoever created the acronym 'C4ISR' surely did so with a wry smile. As an acronym, it almost single-handedly makes the case that defense and security agencies have an unhealthy appetite for unsightly abbreviations. READ MORE »

Why C4ISR Matters - icon

Why C4ISR Matters

Because innovative C4ISR provides a decisive advantage to the warfighter.

C4ISR systems connect people and systems to ensure faster, better decisions and actions, resulting in mission success.

With advanced, agile mission systems, defense forces sense, share, decide and act faster than adversaries, and with greater assurance. When seconds are the difference between success and failure, our integrated mission solutions enable forces to know, decide and respond at outcome-changing speeds.


Assuring Complete Communication

Northrop Grumman is working to provide radio communication systems to route traffic out in the field that helps protect our armed forces.
