The “Did You Know?” section highlights some of our past, present and possibly future historical moments generated from the successful integration of more than 20 marquee companies that are now part of today’s Northrop Grumman

For example, did you know:

  • Both Marilyn Monroe and Bill Gates worked at one of our heritage companies?
  • An episode from the Star Trek television series was filmed at our Space Park facility?
  • We supplied the navigation and pointing aids for NASA’s Mars Rovers?
