Northrop Grumman to demo its biometric ecosystem at WEST 2016

February 17, 2016 - 

Global security company Northrop Grumman is showcasing its key maritime defense capabilities during WEST 2016, a naval conference and exposition taking place this week in San Diego.

One such solution the company is showcasing at its booth this year is its Biometric Ecosystem, a comprehensive range of biometric intelligence solutions for military, law enforcement, counterterrorism and border control. The Biometric Ecosystem includes multi-modal capture, storage, matching, performance monitoring, modeling, simulation and biometric-enabled intelligence functions.

The company is also featuring Fire Scout, an autonomous unmanned helicopter providing situational awareness and precision targeting for military commanders; X-47B, a tailless, strike fighter-sized unmanned aircraft developed for the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) Carrier Demonstration program; and Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS), a system of systems for air and missile defense.

“WEST is an opportunity for excellent dialogue about the emerging threats in the expanding maritime domains and how industry and the military can work together to sustain our unparalleled national security capabilities in spite of fiscal constraints,” said Robert W. “Brick” Nelson, San Diego corporate lead executive, Northrop Grumman. “At Northrop Grumman, we’re developing streamlined, affordable, and integrated capabilities for the warfighter – from seabed to space. Our focus on cyber resiliency ensures that these systems start secure, stay secure and return secure – critical to gaining the advantage in any future conflict.”
