Technical Services

Headquartered in Greenbelt, Maryland, Northrop Grumman's Technical Services Division (TSD) provides a full spectrum of cost-effective engineering, manufacturing, fabrication, project management and program management services to NASA and other civil government, commercial and military space agencies. Our talented group of engineers, designers, technicians and program managers support all phases of projects, from initial concept to final product, in order to deliver reliable and quality products.

Our Technical Services Division's Manufacturing, Integration and Test Facility (MITF) in Beltsville, Maryland, is a full-service spaceflight certified facility created to provide quick turnaround fabrication of flight qualified and ground system electronics and harnessing. The MITF has state-of-the-art processing equipment and uses NASA-approved processes and procedures. We offer process-specific mechanical and electrical hardware integration, inspection and test services through our trained and certified operators and inspectors on-site at the MITF. Other TSD locations include an office in Pasadena, California, and the Engineering, Design and Analysis Facility (EDAF) in Beltsville, Maryland.
