TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 15, 2015 — Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) will offer an aircraft that features counter-rotating rotor blades and a flying-wing helicopter design for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency‘s Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node program, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
Breaking Defense reported Sunday Northrop designed the aircraft for takeoff and landing via ships smaller than aircraft carriers, such as the U.S. Navy‘s littoral combat ships and the DDG 51 destroyer, to support ISR missions.
Flightglobal reported Friday that while DARPA has yet to award the Tern contract, the agency has selected only Northrop to proceed with the program’s phase 3.
