Northrop Grumman signs teaming agreement with Quest Aircraft Company

Northrop Grumman has signed an exclusive teaming agreement with Quest Aircraft Company to be the U.S. federal dealer of the Quest KODIAK, a single-engine short takeoff and landing aircraft, as well as their preferred special mission aircraft integrator.

Under the terms of the agreement, Northrop Grumman and Quest are investing in integrating the Air Clawâ„¢ special mission demonstrator based on the Quest KODIAK.

“This teaming agreement between two proven companies committed to technical superiority and cost performance will produce a highly capable C4ISR platform that is very affordable compared to the competition in these fiscally constrained times,” said Bob Gamache, director, operationally responsive systems, Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “We believe that once integrated, this platform will be a real game changer for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities for state, civil and international agencies as well as for special operations forces.”

Quest builds the KODIAK at its facilities in Sandpoint, Idaho. Northrop Grumman will integrate the aircraft at the company’s Aberdeen Integration Center in Baltimore, Md., at its Martin State Airport facility.

“Quest is excited about entering the special mission aircraft market with a proven integrator like Northrop Grumman,” said Steve Zinda, Director of Sales and Marketing for Quest Aircraft Company. “For a teaming relationship to truly work, both companies must share the same values as is the case with this relationship. The team’s values of integrity, performance and innovation underscore this aircraft’s unique capabilities in multiple markets.”
