Northrop Grumman increases inventory management support for Japan E-2C Hawkeye Program

24 December 2013

Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) said it has entered into an exclusive, five-year agreement with AAR Corp. of Illinois and Sumitomo Corp. of Japan, expanding industrial support for the Japan E-2C Hawkeye program by establishing a “just-in-time” inventory management process.

“Japan is our largest international Hawkeye operator,” said Bart LaGrone, vice president, E-2/C-2 programs, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems.

Japan initially acquired E-2C aircraft to provide “over the horizon” early warning against low flying aircraft. The mission has evolved over time to include long-range sea and air surveillance. The E-2 Hawkeye provides continuous and simultaneous 360-degree surface and air surveillance, at maximum range.

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in unmanned systems, cyber, C4ISR, and logistics and modernization to government and commercial customers worldwide. Visit www.northropgrumman.com for more information.
