Northrop Grumman Serves as Titanium Patron of 2018 Space and Missile Defense Symposium
As global threats evolve, so does Northrop Grumman – harnessing flight proven technology and the disruptive force of digital transformation to deliver a decisive advantage. Our interceptors, targets, propulsion systems, and modular open architecture enable secure, affordable and reliable capabilities to address and outpace the advancing threat. That’s why we’re a leader in missile defense.

Northrop Grumman will have an expanded presence at the show with the addition of its new Innovation Systems (IS) sector. IS adds a range of capabilities to Northrop Grumman’s portfolio, to include targets, interceptors, propulsion systems and satellites.

The annual defense conference in Alabama’s “Rocket City” brings together government and industry leaders from around the world, with a focus on defending warfighters and civilian populations from some of the world’s most devastating threats. As the titanium sponsor, Northrop Grumman will host the annual “Salute to the Warfighter” celebration to recognize those who serve in the defense of our nation.

In keeping with this year’s theme, “Space and Missile Defense: Sharpening the Military’s Competitive Edge,” Northrop Grumman will be discussing how our missile defense solutions can help customers keep pace with new and evolving threats from undersea to space.

“Northrop Grumman harnesses the disruptive force of digital transformation to deliver software-driven, hardware-enabled solutions, giving the U.S. and its allies a decisive advantage,” said Bob McCaleb, Northrop Grumman’s corporate lead executive for Huntsville and SMD Symposium industry chair. “To succeed, we apply innovation to all of our programs, and multiply that through partnerships with small business suppliers who share our commitment to our national defense.”

The symposium takes place at the Von Braun Center in downtown Huntsville, with Northrop Grumman exhibiting at booth 501. Guests can experience an interactive augmented reality demonstration of short, mid and long-range missile defense solutions. There will be models of targets and interceptors available for viewing.

Northrop Grumman will participate in speaking panels and presenting a number of white papers at the conference. Kenneth Todorov, vice president of missile defense solutions, Northrop Grumman, will be the company’s lead presenter.

“We’re very proud to be the top sponsor of this important event,” Todorov said. “By harnessing the combined products, technologies and services of our four business sectors, Northrop Grumman is ready now to shape the future to ensure our customers continue to outpace ever-developing threats.”

During the symposium, Northrop Grumman executives will engage with customers about how our digital transformation can solve challenges in an increasingly complex threat environment. They will also discuss how the complementary capabilities of Innovation Systems allow Northrop Grumman to provide end-to-end air and missile defense solutions from “left of launch” to intercept and assessment.
