Northrop Grumman - Military and Defense Manufacturing


Northrop Grumman Corporation

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading American global aerospace and defense technology company. Originally starting as Northrop Corporation in 1939, it was not until 1994 where Northrop Aircraft merged with Grumman Aerospace to form the corporation it is today. The company is headquartered in West Falls Church, Virginia, and is considered as one of the largest corporations in America.

In addition, Northrop Grumman is one of the top ten United States military and defense contractors for aviation and defense needs. Northrop Grumman is divided into four business sectors: Aerospace Systems, Electronic Systems, Information Systems, and Technical Services. The success of these sectors and Northrop Grumman’s 68,100 employees have allowed the corporation to meet over $24 Billion in yearly revenue and over $1.9 Billion in yearly profit.

Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems business sector is considered as the company’s most well-known division. Headquartered in Redondo Beach, California, this division produces aircrafts, spacecrafts, high-energy laser systems, and microelectronics for the United States along with other nations. Well known Northrop Grumman military aircrafts and vehicles include the B-2 Spirit, E-8C Joint STARS surveillance aircraft, RQ-5 Hunter, BQM-74 Chukar, RQ-4 Global Hawk, Grumman C-2 Greyhound, Grumman E-2 Hawkeye, and the EA-6B Prowler. The Aerospace Systems sector also provides parts and assemblies to for non-Northrop Grumman aircrafts such as the F/A-18 Hornet, F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, and the EA-18G Growler.

Current major government projects contracted with Northrop Grumman include a training simulation for the U.S. Air Force’s virtual training network. This contract, awarded in 2013, could net Northrop Grumman an amount of $490 million.
