Powering multi-domain dominance for Army missions

Powering multi-domain dominance for Army missions

In our commitment to support the U.S. Army’s modernization transformation, Northrop Grumman delivers highly technical, critical capabilities to soldiers and combat formations quickly and affordably.

With deep expertise and understanding of the multi-domain battle, our combat avionics, integrated air and missile defense, cyber security, training, and multifunction mission systems, can affordably enable the transition back to multi-spectral competencies.

Our open, modular architecture also allows for rapid integration and the ability to update systems as the threat evolves, providing the decisive advantage needed for mission success.

Mission Systems Architectures
