FALLS CHURCH, Va. – June 18, 2024 – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) collaborated with the U.S. military on nine separate experiments to improve operational readiness in the Indo-Pacific region. These experiments took place during biennial military exercises conducted by U.S. Indo-Pacific Command focusing on joint training in a multi-domain environment.
