Northrop Grumman Blog post #1

Northrop Grumman is an aerospace and defense-based technology company. Its main role is to create products that vary in multiple areas, such as naval and aerospace. Different people and companies come to Northrop in hopes that the company will be able to solve their problems. The company describes their mission statement as: “Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.” It’s important to not only its clients, but also to us because it is was named “a most valuable employer” by the military in recognition of Northrop’s aid. Aside from creating products for the military, they also make gadgets and tools for the police to keep a city secure. For example, on the first day I arrived in Northrop Grumman, I was given an orientation in the lobby by the mentors. They briefly mentioned what was to be expected for the next 2 weeks, but they also explained some of the interesting things that were allocated around the room. An example was a surveillance machine that allowed the police to view NYC from a bird’s eye point of view. Without Northrop Grumman and similar companies, the police nor the military would have the proper equipment to protect us, so they’re a much bigger deal than I initially thought they were.
