Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has appointed Joseph Ensor to lead the new space intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems division and Michael Hinkey to head the new airborne ISR and targeting systems division following a business realignment.
The company said Monday the appointments come with the separation of the airborne ISR and targeting systems business and space ISR systems business of the ISR&TS division within the electronic systems sector.
“This strategic realignment of our ISR business activities will better position the company for a broad and exciting portfolio of future growth opportunities in both the airborne and space domains, ” said Gloria Flach, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems.
Ensor will serve as vice president and general manager of the space ISR systems division, while Hinkey will be VP and general manager of the airborne ISR and targeting systems division.
Ensor, who previously worked as VP and general manager of the former ISR&TS division, will oversee space ISR business operations in California, Colorado and Maryland.
Hinkey, formerly VP and general manager of Northrop’s engineering, manufacturing and logistics division, will manage airborne ISR business operations in Illinois and Maryland.
