NG highlights defense capabilities at AUSA symposium

Northrop Grumman Corp. (NG) announced that it is highlighting defense capabilities of its security and defense systems at the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium taking place this week.

The company's booth features many defense and security technologies that it has developed, including their Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System, the Global Combat Support System specifically for the Army, and aircraft communication pods.

On display along with those items are robots that can be used to handle explosions that pose hazardous material threats, providing a remote tool to neutralize these threats; radar for situational awareness; and warning communication applications and infrared countermeasures that use lasers in order to communicate with other warning systems and actions.

"The AUSA Global Force Symposium presents important opportunities for industry and the military community to discuss and exchange ideas on weapon system acquisition, the direction of the government's and industry's research and development investments, and ways to improve collaboration between the government and industry," NG Vice President Kevin Campbell said. "With today's challenging and rapidly changing operational environment, it is critical to closely partner with our customers to ensure our future force remains dominant."
