Northrop Grumman to Demonstrate Remote Mine Hunting Capability in Unmanned
Warrior Exercise

LONDON, 2016-09-01 18:30 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation
(NYSE:NOC) will be participating in the Royal Navy's Unmanned Warrior exercise
where it will demonstrate its unmanned mine hunting capability.

The unmanned mine hunting element of Unmanned Warrior will feature Northrop
Grumman's AQS-24B towed mine hunting sensor operated from an Atlas Elektronik
UK ARCIMS Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV). The AQS-24B, which is a towed mine
hunting sensor used by the U.S. Navy, features the world's only high speed
synthetic aperture sonar for mine detection, localisation and classification,
and an optical laser line scan sensor for mine identification. The ARCIMS USV
is a surface craft 11 metres long that will be operated via remote control
while towing the AQS-24B through a simulated mine field.

"Securing access and situational awareness in the maritime environment has
become increasingly important for many nations," said Andrew Tyler, chief
executive, Northrop Grumman Europe. "We look forward to participating in
Unmanned Warrior and demonstrating how innovative, state of the art U.K. and
U.S. technologies can come together to advance unmanned military capabilities
that can potentially benefit both navies as well as those of our allies."

Unmanned Warrior, which takes place at Ministry of Defence (MoD) exercise areas
in Scotland and the Western Isles, is part of the biannual Joint Warrior
exercise, and is the largest capability demonstration event of its kind. It
will feature more than 40 unmanned vehicles, sensors and systems demonstrating,
in a challenging environment, key military missions for the Royal Navy in a
series of themed activities including mine-hunting, sea surveying, submarine
simulation and fleet reconnaissance. The exercise will help inform the Royal
Navy's future capability planning and demonstrate how the systems being
showcased deliver maritime situational awareness.

The demonstration of unmanned systems overlaid onto the Joint Warrior exercise
scenario will create a challenging environment for the participants and allow
the Royal Navy to see first-hand how the systems and sensors could integrate
into current and future maritime operations.
