Northrop gets $114M to build three more Global Hawks

Northrop Grumman has won a $114 million contract to build three additional RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft systems and associated sensors for the Air Force.

The Global Hawk can carry a variety of surveillance and intelligence systems, including near real-time high resolution imagery and other reconnaissance capabilities.

“Global Hawk’s ability to fly more than 30 hours at high altitudes while gathering multiple types of intelligence data makes it extremely valuable to field commanders who need near real-time information,” said George Guerra, Northrop Grumman vice president for Global Hawk UAS.
