Northrop Grumman Corporation cut the ribbon on a new, two-building campus today located just outside of Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, expanding its launch and missile defense development capability. This campus will be home to over 1,000 Northrop Grumman employees in the Huntsville area.
"Our new lab enables us to deliver innovative solutions to our customers on rapid timelines, helping to protect and defend our nation and its allies against evolving threats," said Scott Lehr, vice president and general manager, launch and missile defense systems, Northrop Grumman.
