Northrop Grumman in Japan

Northrop Grumman has a long history in Japan dating back to the late 1950s when the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) used the Grumman Avenger aircraft for maritime patrol, the Albatross aircraft for search and rescue, and the Tracker aircraft for anti-submarine warfare. This close partnership with Japan continues today with Northrop Grumman providing support to all the major branches of the JSDF on a range of defense, security and information systems programs.
