Northrop Grumman Corporation is a global aerospace and military technology business based in the United States. It is among the world’s foremost weapons manufacturers and producers of military technologies.

Northrop Grumman and industry partners have received the Collier Trophy eight times, most recently for designing the X-47B, the world’s first unmanned, autonomous air system capable of operating from an aircraft carrier.

BACKGROUND

Northrop Grumman is presently developing the B-21 Raider, a long-range stealth strategic bomber capable of dropping conventional and nuclear missiles; it will eventually replace Northrop’s own B-2 Spirit, the world’s only known stealth bomber. Amongst its major ongoing endeavours are indeed the design and manufacture of the James Webb Space Telescope, an orbiting observatory scheduled for release in 2021; and the manufacture of solid rocket boosters for NASA’s Space Launch System programme. It was also the lone candidate for the Air Force’s Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent programme, which is tasked with developing and manufacturing a new intercontinental ballistic missile.

Northrop Grumman’s business is divided into four distinct segments: [A.] Aeronautics Systems, [B.] Defence Systems, [C.] Mission Systems, and [D.] Space Systems.

HISTORY

Northrop Grumman can trace its ancestry all the way back to the Grumman Corporation, which was established on Long Island, New York, in the early 1900s. During World War II, it produced all of the aircraft used by the United States Navy. After the war, it began producing the first aluminium canoes using scraps leftover from the production of aeroplanes utilising these materials. Ballistic missiles were later developed, as were all-weather radars, the Apollo Lunar Module, and fighter aircraft for land and water as well as stealth bombers.

When Jack Northrop first established the Northrop Corporation back in 1939, it was in California. The company was reincorporated in Delaware in 1985.   After the Cold War ended, Northrop embarked on a buying spree, picking up notable firms like Grumman Aerospace, Westinghouse, and TRW Inc., among others.   After buying Orbital ATK from Northrop Grumman in 2018, the company was renamed Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems. Northrop Grumman has grown into one of the world’s biggest military companies.

Veritas Capital acquired Northrop’s government IT and mission support business in December 2020, and the deal was for three billion dollars in cash. This acquisition was made by Veritas via its Peraton subsidiary.   The deal was finalised in February of the following year, 2021.

On March 5th, 2021, Northrop Grumman was awarded the contract for the Mars Ascent Propulsion System for the Ascent Vehicle Mars Sample Return Mission.  As of 2011, the headquarters of Northrop Grumman Corporation is located in West Falls Church, Virginia (formerly Jefferson), which is an unincorporated community in Fairfax County, Virginia.
