ORLANDO, Nov. 8, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will highlight solutions to support the national security and intelligence communities next week at the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation's GEOINT 2006 Symposium.

The exposition will be held Nov. 13-16 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Northrop Grumman will feature geospatial solutions for government, military, intelligence and homeland security information technology infrastructures at booth 819.

Northrop Grumman will introduce NGesture, the next generation of intuitive computer interaction technology. NGesture removes artificial barriers to interacting with applications and data, enabling users to control desktop applications using just their hands in three-dimensional space. NGesture provides users with a natural interface to apply, manipulate and interact with information.

Northrop Grumman will demonstrate its GeoShield(tm) and Geospatial Semantic Web solutions. GeoShield develops and integrates network-centric architecture for future command, control, communication, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems. The solution provides situational awareness, terrain analysis, tactical decision aids and terrain reasoning for the armed services across common platforms and interfaces. The company's Geospatial Semantic Web solutions use traditional data operations and next generation geospatial intelligence to manage and interpret significant amounts of geospatial intelligence.

The company will also exhibit its Space Radar program featuring layered intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities for warfighters and the intelligence community. Space Radar satellites are being designed to provide global and theater situational awareness as well as day-night, all-weather access into areas denied to other assets.

Northrop Grumman's ENFIRE technical engineering tool set is designed to generate, manage, analyze and digitally distribute engineering data that significantly enhance current and future Army command-and-control requirements. The ENFIRE tool set can assist in the collection of information and production management at a much higher fidelity than currently possible.
