Northrop Grumman splits ISR, targeting systems division in two

Northrop Grumman has restructured its Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems division within its Electronic Systems sector.

The Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems division will be divided into two separate divisions, Northrop Grumman said: Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems and Space Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems.

Michael Hinkey will lead the Airborne ISR&TS division as vice president and general manager. He was most recently vice president and general manager of Engineering, Manufacturing and Logistics. Hinkey joined the company in 1981.

Joseph Ensor will head up the Space ISR division as vice president and general manager. He was most recently vice president and general manager of the original ISR&TS division before it was separated into two divisions. Ensor joined the company in 1979.

One of the instigators in the split, Northrop said in a release, was a $20 million Maryland Space Assembly and Test facility at the company’s engineering and manufacturing complex in Linthicum, Md., which will allow Northrop to find more growth in its space business.

"This strategic realignment of our ISR business activities will better position the company for a broad and exciting portfolio of future growth opportunities in both the airborne and space domains," said Gloria A. Flach, corporate vice president and president, Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems, in an announcement.
