LONDON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman says it's showcasing a full range of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance products this week in India.

The venue is the Aero India 2013 exhibition and air show in Bengaluru The program is organized by the Defense Exhibition Organization and begins Wednesday.

"ISR capability is critical to effective homeland security and our leadership in multiple-domain ISR strongly positions Northrop Grumman to help create solutions for India's defense modernization," said Mary Petryszyn, vice president, International, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "We are excited to offer our core capabilities to advancing Indian naval, military and homeland security priorities."

A major capability on show will be the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning system that couples newly designed electronically scanned radar with a matching suite of sensors, avionics, processors, software and displays.

Northrop said the backbone of the aircraft is the AN/APY-9 radar for more flexible target detection and tracking. The system will be demonstrated at the show by an E-2D Advanced Hawkeye crew workstation and flyable cockpit simulator.

Also on display will be the MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft and the lighter-than-air Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle. Triton is a maritime version of the Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system. It can fly 24-hour missions at altitude of as much as 10 miles and can be used in conjunction with the P-8 Poseidon, which has been purchased by the Indian navy.
