Counter Hypersonics Mission […]
It's science fiction.
Until it's not.
- We develop and build some of the world’s most advanced missile defense technology. From Command systems to Directed Energy weapons, advanced munitions and powerful sensors, we’re defining what is possible across multiple domains to ensure reliable, effective protection.
Northrop Grumman has been an important contributor to missile defense since the beginning, from providing threat discrimination software to building flight hardware for interceptors.
Today, our portfolio touches every major element of an end-to-end missile defense system across all layers and ranges, from left of launch to the successful intercept of a threat and post-engagement analysis.
A robust and reliable missile defense system depends on a trusted, resilient and cyber-secure battle management, command, control and communications infrastructure.
Low-latency, beyond-line-of-sight networks ensure that information passes instantly between sensors, interceptors and command nodes on land, at sea and in space. It extends to the cyber and electromagnetic radiofrequency domains, too.
