Over $25 billion in annual revenue (93% Defense) Over $13 billion in annual vendor commitments Mark pages according to the proprietary level of information as described in Company Procedure J103 (or remove) Northrop Grumman History • Northrop Aircraft was founded in 1939 and acquired Grumman Aerospace in 1994, creating Northrop Grumman Corporation • The “flying wing” design of the Northrop XB-35 influenced the B-2 stealth bomber decades later • Northrop Grumman legacy companies were early innovators in information systems, space, and radar development • Major legacy companies include Northrop Corporation, Grumman Aerospace, Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Logicon Corporation, Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical, and TRW Incorporated Today Northrop Grumman is a leader in growing fields such as unmanned systems, cyber, C4ISR, and logistics 3 Grumman F4F Wildcat, 1940 Grumman F-14 Tomcat, 1972 Northrop XB-35, 1946 Northrop B-2 Stealth Bomber,1997 (IOC) Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk State of Maryland Legacy • In 1996 Northrop Grumman acquired Westinghouse Defense and Electronics, eventually becoming the Electronic Systems Sector (ES) – Westinghouse was based in Maryland starting in 1938 – Facilities in Linthicum, Annapolis, Sykesville, & Elkridge – Developed first Army ground-based radar and has continued to produce ground and air based radars ever since • ~10,000 Northrop Grumman employees work in Maryland at many locations, making it one of the largest for-profit employers. • Over the four quarters from Q2 2011-Q1 2012, Northrop Grumman committed $893 million to local vendors in the state. • Northrop Grumman consistently ranked as one of the top State Corporate Philanthropists with over $2.5 Mil donations contributed. • Today Electronic Systems is a premier provider of electronic systems and solutions around the globe. 4 Northrop Grumman is the largest manufacturer in Maryland Primary Northrop Grumman Facilities in Maryland Facility: Sykesville Programs: Navy Propulsion Systems Facility: Baltimore IS sites Programs: Social Security Administration Facility: Aberdeen Programs: Surveillance aircraft Facility: Millersville Programs: Cyber range Facility: Annapolis Junction Programs: Cyber Facility: Hollywood/Pax River Programs: UCLASS, BAMS, Fire Scout, E-2D 5 Facility: BWI Programs: F-16, F-35 AESA Radar, G/ATOR, Facility: Annapolis Programs: Restricted, undersea Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) Education Outreach Cyberchase Conservation International Mathcounts Shoes That Fit Design Squad National Public Lands Day Teacher Grants Science Olympiad NASA Space Camp Teach For America National Engineers Week Cyber Patriot Students & Teachers Pre-School Peep & The BIG Wide World 6 Elementary School Middle School High School Design Squad TEAACH HIP REAACH Junior Achievement MBRT Engineering Scholars PLTW Advisory Board YESS Achievement Counts Science Olympiad Virtual Worlds Smart Cart FIRST Lego League Eweek STEM Grants NGWE Discover E VEX Robotics FIRST Robotics NSBE Community Service Grants Advisory Boards Project Lead the Way SHPE Plant Tours SWE Key Defense Innovation Trends • Driver – defense budget constraints • Paradigm shift from proprietary systems to Open Systems strategy – Open Architecture – Open Innovation • Key benefits of Open Systems – Third-party insertions vs proprietary systems – Affordable system upgrades for new functionality – HW & SW Component reuse 7 Technical & Business Strategies Design for Modular Open Systems Architectures Fosters Innovation Proactively Responding to MOSA • State-of-the-art systems to the services • Easier technology insertion • Easier/rapid technology Insertion • Tapping into a larger talent pool • Flexibility to use 3rd party solutions • Design leverages reuse & portability • Published interfaces & standards • Tech industry advances Enables Competition Provides a Competitive Advantage • Reduced development time • Agility in responding to customer needs • Reduced integration & testing time • Reduce H/W end-of-life issues • Less expensive technology insertion • Cost & schedule efficiency • Lower life cycle costs • Leverage mainstream market investments in R&D MOSA Streamlines Technology Insertion … Lowering Acquisition & Life Cycle Costs 8 Open Innovation • Open Innovation - originally proposed by Chesbrough in 2003: – Paradigm that assumes firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as firms look to advance their technology (Chesbrough, 2003) – Original definition preceded crowdsourcing • Challenge Driven Innovation – best modern implementation of open innovation - details in The Open Innovation Marketplace (Bingham, 2011) – Open Innovation - as described above – Crowdsourcing - the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a trusted agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, usually large group of people in an open call (Howe, 2008) – Challenge Emphasis - focus on top business opportunities Creates opportunities for third parties to participate in defense programs 9 Open Innovation Opportunities Northrop Grumman Innovation Network Northrop Grumman Business Units Gaps • Source of R&D funds for most innovative organizations • New challenges posted about every 2 months Innovation Network Calls For Innovation • For more information: http://www.northropgrumman.com/ innovation/ Internal Employee Portal R&D $$ External Portal Universities Small Businesses Best Ideas NGC-funded R&D or joint R&D 10 Other Organizations Northrop Grumman Education Outreach Investing in our Future • Signature Programs – DiscoverE -
