Northrop Grumman Establishes Defence Electronics Manufacturing Facility In Australia
Australian Air Force's C-130E

Northrop Grumman will establish $50 million worth advanced defence electronics facility that could support Australian Air Force's C-130 Hercules, F-35 JSF, EA-18G Growler, MQ-4C Triton, and P-8A Poseidon.

Northrop Grumman’s investment will establish an Electronic Sustainment Centre of Excellence (ESCE) to support this effort and sustain mission-readiness capabilities within the Commonwealth, the company announced Monday.

The ESCE could include capabilities to support the maintenance, repair, set-to-work and future upgrade of Northrop Grumman’s advanced electronics on the RAAF’s C-130 Hercules, F-35 JSF, EA-18G Growler, MQ-4C Triton, and P-8A Poseidon.

 The centre will eventually be located in a defence precinct at the new Badgerys Creek Western Sydney airport.

The investment will secure Northrop Grumman's place as the anchor tenant for the advanced aerospace and defence industries precinct.

 The centre will support advanced electronics such as communications equipment, electronic warfare equipment and targeting pods.
