Interceptor Flight Test
The U.S. Air Force’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) is the replacement for the aging Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile system.
Northrop Grumman and our nationwide team bring unique qualifications for the GBSD competition, offering the U.S. Air Force with a compelling, total-system approach to modernizing the ICBM force.
The Northrop Grumman-built Defense Support Program (DSP) satellites have been the spaceborne segment of NORAD's Tactical Warning and Attack Assessment system since 1970
We are also a key member of the Space Based Infrared Surveillance (SBIRS) team having provided payload and navigation systems to ensure timely, reliable and accurate missile warning and IR information.
Two Northrop Grumman-built Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) satellites are on-orbit, birth-to-death tracking of ballistic missiles.
