LONDON, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman plans to showcase a range of aircraft security systems, from radars to unmanned aerial vehicles, at the Singapore Air Show this month.

Included in its displays is a variety of Q-4 high-altitude, long-endurance UAVs such as the MQ-4C Broad Area Maritime Surveillance aircraft and E-2D Advanced Hawkeye.

"Our customer base across Southeast Asia is extremely important to us," said Bill Schaefer, sector vice president of business development for the company's Aerospace Systems sector.

"Singapore is a key market, one in which we have considerable capabilities and a wide range of products to offer.

"Northrop Grumman's technology leadership and proven capability in many areas, including airborne early warning and control and aerial surveillance, are well matched to meeting the region's growing defense and security needs."

Northrop said electronic systems it will feature include its Active Electronically Scanned Array radars, including a model of the corporation's newest AESA fighter sensor, the Scalable Agile Beam Radar, which was designed as a retrofit for existing F-16 Block 52 jets and earlier models.

The air show, Asia's largest, is Feb. 14-16.
