A full-scale model of Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton will be located on the Royal Australian Air Force’s “Jericho Trail.” In June 2018, the Australian government announced its plan to purchase the unmanned aircraft system. As a high altitude long endurance system, Triton will significantly enhance the Commonwealth’s maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
