Steven Ciobo, Australian Minister for Defence Industry, and Warren King, Chairman of Northrop Grumman Australia’s Advisory Board, signed the certificate.
Northrop Grumman’s AIC Deed establishes a framework to deliver real opportunities for Australian industry in major defence programs, in particular the MQ-4C Triton program with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF).
The company is committed to working with government to develop the highly-skilled workforce required to build a sustainable, sovereign industrial base. Northrop Grumman will continue to assist small- and medium-size enterprises to deliver innovative capabilities and technologies to a global market.
