Northrop Grumman will showcase a range of systems including airborne early warning and control, C4ISR, radars, defence electronics, cyber security and an upgraded helicopter cockpit at IDEX 2015.

The company will also feature leading maritime capabilities, including mine-countermeasure solutions ALMDS and AQS-24, at NAVDEX, the naval defence and maritime security section of IDEX.

"Northrop Grumman is committed to being a trusted, long-term partner with Gulf Cooperation Council countries," said Doug Raaberg, chief executive, Northrop Grumman United Arab Emirates. "IDEX and NAVDEX 2015 are opportunities to renew those ties, shine a spotlight on our leading capabilities and work closely with our customers to enhance the security and development of the region."

A featured attraction of Northrop Grumman's IDEX exhibit will be the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning and control tactical workstation, which enables visitors to simulate operating an E-2D and learn about its data-gathering features.

The exhibit will also spotlight Northrop Grumman's industry-leading radar technologies, including Longbow fire control radars for the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter and ground-based radars such as the AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar and the AN/TPS-78 and TPS-703 air surveillance and air traffic control radars.

Among the advanced defence electronics systems on display will be the AN/AAQ-28(V) LITENING pod, a combat-proven, self-contained, multisensor targeting and surveillance system.

Northrop Grumman offers a full range of open, interoperable and cyber-hardened command and control and solutions. These solutions include the Citadel Enterprise Battle Command System, a cyber-secure, rapidly deployable and mobile command-and-control system that delivers a single integrated air picture to enable better, timelier decision making. Citadel can easily incorporate current and future sensors and weapon systems for the greatest flexibility to contend with the evolving threat and budget environments.

In addition, Northrop Grumman will showcase its upgraded helicopter cockpit. Derived from the U.S. Army's UH-60V Black Hawk program, the system allows customers to have an affordable, highly digital, integrated suite of avionics equipment. The system's integrated architecture can be applied to many platforms through a single software package.
