Northrop Grumman's teammates are GE Security, GETAC Inc., Native Hawaiian Veterans LLC, Hewlett-Packard Co., Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc., Security Information Systems and G/I/S Inc.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Northrop Grumman employs more than 125,000 workers and had 2004 revenue of about $29.9 billion. The company ranks No. 2
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
