Northrop Grumman was recently designated as a Jimmy Doolittle Educational Fellow by the Central Florida chapter of the Air Force Association for its leadership in the field of precision navigation.

“Northrop Grumman is proud to be recognized as an industry leader in precision navigation,” said Iversen. “We find greater meaning in our work knowing that our products contribute to national security, and not only help war fighters reach their destinations, but also bring them safely home.”

Northrop Grumman specializes in the development of inertial navigation systems and inertial sensor technologies, including fiber-optic gyroscopes, ring laser gyros and the unique hemispherical resonator gyro, for domestic and international defense and commercial markets. The company also develops situational awareness systems, including integrated avionics systems for rotary- and fixed-wing platforms.
