Northrop Grumman - Latin America Aerospace and Defence 2009, Brazil

Northrop Grumman : 13 April, 2009  (Company News)
Northrop Grumman Corporation will highlight a wide range of naval and airborne capabilities at the 2009 Latin America Aerospace and Defence (LAAD) show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
LAAD is one of Latin America’s leading exhibitions for the defense and security industry bringing together Brazilian and international companies that provide equipment and services for the three armed forces, special forces, security services, consultants and government agencies. LAAD will be held on 14-17 April 2009 at Riocentro Exhibition and Convention Center.



Northrop Grumman will be exhibiting at stand number K-29. On display will be Northrop Grumman’s world-leading capabilities in naval shipboard technologies, shipbuilding, airborne radars, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and air traffic communication systems.



“We are proud of our long relationship with the Brazil navy, which dates back more than 30 years,” said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit. “We are currently under contract to supply the integrated bridge systems (IBS) for the new class of 500-ton patrol boats, as well as a multi-phase program to upgrade navigation radars and inertial Navigation Systems (INS) throughout the fleet. We also have strong relationships with other Latin American navies, such as Mexico and Chile.”



“We will leverage Sperry Marine’s extensive record of supplying state-of-the-art products and customer support as a springboard to introduce our sister units within Northrop Grumman to the Latin American defense and aerospace market,” DaCunha added.



Sperry Marine will showcase its IBS, MK27F and MK39 ship INSs and other bridge electronics. The Sperry Marine group will use an interactive touchscreen smart table demonstration kiosk with large high-resolution monitors to demonstrate the full range of capabilities and product lines for modern naval forces.



Also featured in the exhibit will be the Fire Scout vertical take-off and landing UAV, Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array (MESA) airborne early warning system, APN-241 radar and the International Patrol Frigate, a versatile warship based on the multi-mission U.S. Coast Guard National Security Cutter. Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems’ PAE T6 and PAE M7 multi-mode digital radios for Air traffic control communications will be highlighted.



Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine, headquartered in Charlottesville, Va., and with major engineering and support offices in New Malden, United Kingdom and Hamburg, Germany, provides smart navigation and ship control solutions for the international marine industry with customer service and support through offices in 16 countries, sales representatives in 47 countries and authorized service depots in more than 250 locations worldwide.



Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, based in Peterborough, U.K., and in Oslo and Horten, Norway, supplies communication, navigation and surveillance systems for air-space operations worldwide.
