Key Programs:

  Sentinel B-2 Stealth Bomber B-21Raider

B-21: Northrop Grumman’s B-21 Raider, the world’s first sixth-generation aircraft, was unveiled on December 2, 2022 at the company’s site in Palmdale, California. Developed with the next generation of stealth technology, advanced networking capabilities and an open systems architecture, the B-21 will serve as the backbone of America’s bomber fleet. Driven by ingenuity and partnership, this aircraft will be capable of penetrating the toughest of defenses to deliver precision strikes anywhere in the world. The B-21 Raider is the future of deterrence.

Sentinel: The Sentinel ICBM program is a critical modernization of the nation’s ground-based leg of the strategic triad, replacing Minuteman III, which has been in service for over 50 years.  As prime contractor to the Air Force, Northrop Grumman is leading a nationwide team to produce a modern, integrated system that is designed to be adaptable to meet future threats and keep pace with emerging technologies. Our team is leading the way in leveraging digital engineering, agile software and open systems architecture to model and authenticate virtual designs to lower risk.  The cornerstone of our nation’s deterrence, Sentinel will support global stability by serving as a safe, secure, and credible deterrent to protect our nation and assure allies for decades to come.
