Northrop Grumman at Space Symposium

Northrop Grumman is a technology leader and premier provider of space, ground and launch systems with deep mission expertise and end-to-end capabilities in national security, civil, and commercial systems. 

As proven pioneers and operators in space, it’s our responsibility to address both the needs for space domain awareness and secure space solutions for the U.S. Space Force and our International Partners.

When we talk about defining possible, we’re talking about defining the future of space – from next generation capabilities that deliver space superiority, to future mission requirements and architectures.

We have a clear vision for the future space domain, which is reliable (connected), resilient (multi-layered), and revolutionary (business/technology).

Come visit us at Booth #1102, to learn more about Northrop Grumman’s broad space portfolio.

Space Mobility and Logistics

Asymmetric Advantages to Assure the Space Mission

Space mobility and logistics (SML) services provided by SpaceLogistics, a Northrop Grumman company, can provide the Space Force asymmetric advantages by assuring the space mission at an affordable price.

SpaceLogistics is the first and only company currently performing on-orbit servicing for commercial satellites in GEO. Our in-space servicing makes missions more capable, operations more affordable and fleet management more flexible. Next generation systems now in development will help satellites live longer, perform better and address evolving missions, giving government and commercial customers competitive advantage and operational sustainability.

Connected Battlefield

Connecting the Battlefield in Space

When the battle is moving at Mach 5+, minutes – even seconds – can mean the difference between mission success and mission failure. Data must get from sensor to shooter in a tactically relevant timeframe, with minimal lag time and zero interruptions. Moving that data through space while allowing users to remain undetected and free from interferers is foundational to the Department of Defense’s pursuit of a Joint All-Domain Command & Control (JADC2) operational environment. Northrop Grumman is leveraging decades of mission experience on orbit to tackle a wide range of emerging threats. Our space capabilities form the eyes, ears and nervous system of the connected battlespace, securely delivering the right information to the right place, at the right time.
