NGC’s Global Hawk Ready for Review

Northrop Grumman’s (NYSE: NOC) RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned reconnaissance system is set for review by the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Defense Acquisition Board (DAB).

“Global Hawk is performing 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s conducting combat and civil missions around the world, while at the same time the Air Force is putting it through test and evaluation paces here at home to vet the system for final production, ” said Gary Ervin, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. “Global Hawk is performing well in these tests. Its unprecedented performance proves its value to our customers every day with a 95% on-station record, low sustainment and operating costs and high value intelligence. Frankly, it outperforms any other high altitude intelligence, reconnaissance and intelligence system in theater today. It’s in a class of its own.”
