Northrop Grumman Corp. and Silicon Graphics Inc. have signed a cooperative agreement that combines their visualization and technology expertise to address how warfighters make decisions in the battle space, company officials said.
The two companies will provide visualization solutions-synthesizing data and presenting it to decision-makers through new graphical means for customers in the Defense Department, the U.S. intelligence community, the Missile Defense Agency and the Homeland Security Department.
Northrop Grumman is in Los Angeles, and Silicon Graphics is in Mountain View, Calif. Systems engineering and integration work will be performed at Northrop Grumman's Advanced Concepts Demonstration lab at its Mission Systems sector in Reston, Va.
"The intent of this partnership is to develop new means to synthesize, present and distribute information, so as to facilitate effective decision-making in complex situations," said Donald Winter, president of Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector.
