- Company Overview
Northrop Grumman is proud of its established relationship with the Commonwealth of Australia and is committed to enhancing its business and geographic footprint in country. We have a strong customer base in Australia and have been supporting a variety of defence and civil programmes here for more than 20 years.
As a leading provider and integrator of autonomous, C4ISR, cyber, logistics and strike systems and solutions, Northrop Grumman works with Australia’s Defence Force to ensure border and Pacific-region security and mission success.
- Autonomous Systems
- Showcase Capability
Northrop Grumman is a leader in the design, development and production of wet-end sensors, signal processing and complete anti-submarine warfare systems and we continue to develop advanced shipboard radar, track management, electronic warfare and other systems to counter increasingly sophisticated sea-based threats. The company was the first to field electro-optic mine identification, and developed the first long-range synthetic aperture sonar for mine warfare, the first mine warfare unmanned surface vessel (jointly with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center) and mine warfare unmanned underwater vehicles.
- Through a Global Supply Chain Deed signed with the Australian Department of Defence in 2011 and renewed in 2017, Northrop Grumman is identifying opportunities for Australian industry to compete within the company's global supply chain
- Northrop Grumman supports research and development through collaboration with research facilities such as the Australian Centre for Cyber Security, the University of Queensland, the University of New South Wales and the University of Adelaide.
- Northrop Grumman is excited to leverage considerable U.S. reach back to provide high quality systems, affordably and on-time, in support of the Royal Australian Navy’s capability objectives.
- Key customers
- Northrop Grumman supports the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Air Force in a variety of programmes
- MQ-4C Triton Unmanned Aircraft System: Northrop Grumman's MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system (UAS) provides real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) over vast ocean and coastal regions. The aircraft can fly for more than 24 hours at a time, at a max altitude just above 55,000 feet and an operational range of 8,200 nautical miles.
- Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C-27J: The C-27J is a critical capability for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and represents the strength of our partnership with the Australian Department of Defence. Northrop Grumman is positioned to bring a whole-of-life sustainment approach to the C-27J, as well as provide a roadmap for future modernization and upgrade solutions using global and U.S. reach-back combined with sovereign capabilities.
- AQS-24B Minehunting System: Northrop Grumman has three decades of in-fleet airborne mine countermeasure experience with 27 systems fielded. The company was the first to field electro-optic mine identification, and developed the first long-range synthetic aperture sonar for mine warfare, the first mine warfare unmanned surface vessel (jointly with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center) and mine warfare unmanned underwater vehicles.
- Key Partners
- Northrop Grumman has been actively partnering with Australian companies to strengthen its commitment to this strategically important market. Northrop Grumman’s largest Australian F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter supplier, Quickstep Technologies, demonstrated that its new production facility is equipped and qualified to manufacture and deliver quality composite parts for the F-35’s centre fuselage. At a new facility opened in Bankstown, Sydney, in 2012, Quickstep is expected to manufacture over 36,000 parts for the F-35.
