Northrop Grumman Corp. will realign business within two of its operating sectors that have similar customers, expertise and capabilities, officials of the Los Angeles firm announced today.
Effective Jan. 1, Northrop Grumman Information Technology will pick up the Global Information Technology, Civil Systems and Mission Systems Europe businesses from Northrop Grumman Mission Systems.
The Defense Mission Systems unit of Northrop Grumman IT will move to the Mission Systems sector.
The units moving to the IT sector are expected to generate about $840 million 2003 revenue.
The Defense Mission Systems is expected to bring in about $850 million in 2003 revenue.
Approximately 5,600 employees from Northrop Grumman IT will move to Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, and 2,600 employees from Mission Systems will move to Northrop Grumman IT.
The realignment will better position Northrop Grumman IT to focus on large-scale information systems modernization, public safety and infrastructure support activities for defense, intelligence, homeland security and other federal, state and local government customers, according to the company.
The moves also will allow Mission Systems to specialize in integrating complex, mission-critical and network-centric systems for defense and intelligence customers.
Northrop Grumman had $17.2 billion in revenue in 2002 and was ranked No. 2 on the Washington Technology Top 100 list of federal prime contractors for 2003. The defense giant provides products, services and solutions in systems integration, defense electronics, information technology, aircraft, shipbuilding and space technology. It employs about 120,000 people in all 50 states and in 25 countries.
