Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and EADS Defence & Security’s Euro Hawk unmanned aircraft has successfully completed its first flight.

The aircraft climbed to 32, 000 feet over the California desert before landing nearly two hours later at Edwards Air Force Base.

“The Euro Hawk marks the first international configuration of the RQ-4 Global Hawk high-altitude, long-endurance (HALE) UAS, and strengthens Northrop Grumman’s first transatlantic cooperation with Germany and EADS Defence & Security, ” said Duke Dufresne, sector vice president and general manager of the strike and surveillance systems division for Northrop Grumman’s aerospace systems sector. “This is a wonderful start for the Euro Hawk’s flight-test program, and a great testament to the Northrop Grumman and EADS Defence & Security team who worked diligently to make it happen.”
