Until recently, the more exotic effects of quantum technology were limited to academic experiments. A research team within Northrop Grumman is incorporating emerging developments in quantum technology to provide capabilities not found in the realm of classical physics. […]
A field-induced force is what the name implies: a wave creates a force that moves an object without touching it. Using frequencies beyond what humans can hear, the Northrop Grumman team creates can move tiny particles using sound. […]
The pinch polarizer is an invention by Northrop Grumman aerospace engineers. It’s a big deal in the space industry because, for relatively little cost and little production effort, it plays a big role in ensuring the transmission of satellite radio signals. […]
“In combat, every second matters,” said Tim Grebs, program manager at Northrop Grumman.
Grebs should know. He has served 15 years in the U.S. Air Force and completed two tours of duty in Afghanistan as an A-10 fighter pilot. And the equipment that frequently bought Grebs time, he said, was the aircraft’s electro-optical and infrared sensors, or EO/IR systems. […]
Powerful robots will soon get artificial eyes and a brain. This next gen upgrade in advanced manufacturing is what engineers at Northrop Grumman are developing through sophisticated deep learning algorithms. […]
A meaningful upgrade to the component responsible for guiding and shaping the radio signal, called a radio frequency switch, has lagged for decades. Until now. […]
