Unmanned Systems - Global Hawk

A combat-proven HALE UAS with extraordinary ISR capabilities, providing near-real-time high resolution imagery of large geographical areas all day and night in all types of weather.

The Air Force Global Hawk evolved from DARPA technology and was deployed overseas shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Today, the active Global Hawk enterprise is made up of three complimentary systems. The Global Hawk Comms Gateway was unveiled in 2006 and operates the Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN), a communications system that receives, bridges, and distributes information among all participants in a battle.

The Global Hawk Multi-INT is important for situation awareness and intelligence across huge areas of land and carries the sensor systems EISS (Enhanced Integrated Sensor Suite) and ASIP (Airborne Signals Intelligence Payload). The Global Hawk Wide Area Surveillance carries the Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP), which provides game-changing situational awareness and targeting information on both fixed and moving targets. The original Global Hawk model is now flown on scientific research missions by NASA.

Global Hawk has its origins in the 1995 High-Altitude Endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (HAE UAV ACTD) program initiated by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office (DARO).

The Global Hawk effort succeeded because it focused on the design and construction of a practical air vehicle that was developmentally mature enough to be transitioned into an operational weapons system. While still a developmental system, the Global Hawk system began supporting overseas contingency operations only two months after the September 11, 2001 attacks. The system has surpassed 125,000 flight hours and midway through 2014 had 100,000 combat/operational flight hours.

Outpacing the rapidly evolving cyber threat spectrum demands constant innovation. Northrop Grumman has been battling cyber threats for more than 30 years and, through aggressive technology investments in key research areas such as identity management, situational awareness, modeling and simulation, cloud security, and supply chain, has a deep understanding of the breadth and complexity of cyber. It is embedded in everything we do.

Full-spectrum cyber operations provide synchronized and integrated kinetic/non-kinetic mission operations, protection, intelligence, and active response across the entire electromagnetic or digital spectrum to ensure economic protection and national security.

  • Cyber Intelligence

Capabilities for collecting, fusing and analyzing cyber data to provide actionable information and situational awareness for operators in support of carrying out cyber missions.

  • Cyber Resiliency

A set of cyber capabilities that serve as contingencies for compromised networks and platforms to sustain basic functionality and/or restore an optimal state.

  • Active Cyber Defense

Real-time capabilities that enable defenders to more readily disrupt, mitigate and neutralize cyberattacks and vulnerabilities through proactive anticipatory actions and/or direct engagement with adversaries in a controlled cyberspace environment.

  • Full Spectrum Operations

The integration of cyber and non-kinetic capabilities that allow operators to plan, map, access and maneuver through targeted networks unimpeded/undetected, employ D5* effects against adversaries, shape and prepare the operational environment, and/or work in conjunction with other non-kinetic effects.




If you’re not an expert in every part of C4ISR, you’re an expert in none. Through four decades of experience in C4ISR, Northrop Grumman has proven its expertise in the category. We’ve developed an end-to-end approach that demonstrates our complete understanding of complex C4ISR  solutions, as well as our ability to create them. That’s why we’re a leader in end-to-end C4ISR solutions.




Northrop Grumman delivers innovative logistics solutions enabling affordability, effectiveness, and global mission readiness.

From modernization and sustainment, to supply chain management, training and simulation, high-technology services and automated test equipment, we offer a full-spectrum of support to meet any mission requirement.

Northrop Grumman Technical Services is considered a powerhouse in logistics support, sustainment and technical services for the corporation as well as current and future customers.

The sector's Integrated Logistics and Modernization (ILM) Division provides a full spectrum of contractor logistics support to include logistics management, depot maintenance, sustaining engineering support and global field management.
