NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 24, 2008 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will feature solutions to support national security and defense next week at the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation's GEOINT 2008 Symposium.

The exposition will be held Oct. 27-30 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, Nashville.

Northrop Grumman will highlight its recent acquisition of 3001 International, Inc., a provider of geospatial data production and analysis, including airborne imaging, surveying, mapping and geographic information systems for domestic and international government intelligence, defense and civilian customers.

"The addition of 3001 International helps Northrop Grumman further support the critical needs and priorities across homeland security, emergency response, installation management and counter-narcotics programs," said John Olesak, vice president of geospatial intelligence for Northrop Grumman's Information Technology sector.

Northrop Grumman's geospatial solutions for government, military and intelligence agencies will be demonstrated at booth 233. 3001 International, Inc. will exhibit at booth 370.

Demonstrations on display in Northrop Grumman's booth include:

  * A route planning scenario integrates multiple Northrop Grumman
 geospatial architecture framework capabilities to address a range
 of customer requirements.  The demonstration will include semantic
 search, data conflation and fusion, sensor Web enablement, and
 geoprocessing and visualization services.

 * Social Mining Analytic Collaboration (SMAC), developed by Northrop
 Grumman, is a new way to approach intelligence gathering. SMAC
 leverages Web 2.0 capabilities to provide a set of advanced analytic
 tools within a secure collaborative environment, helping analysts
 support their missions more effectively. SMAC is operated on Northrop
 Grumman's FivePicture Workstation, which simplifies the task of 
 visualizing multiple data sets, while enhancing collaboration and
 improving the quality of analysis.

 * The Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Enterprise Framework is
 a family of fixed and deployable ground processing systems for
 multi-source tactical intelligence. It is a common framework that
 forms the backbone for all Northrop Grumman DCGS products and spans
 multiple services and agencies.

 * Trinidad is a low-cost-, low-risk approach to provide high-
 resolution radar imaging to the U.S. military and government
 agencies through a partnership between Northrop Grumman and Israel
 Aerospace Industries. The highly agile system can provide tactically
 useful synthetic aperture radar imagery that significantly increases 
 the nation's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability.
