NG opens office to support RQ-4 stationing

GRAND FORKS, N.D., May 27 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman opened an unmanned aircraft system support office in North Dakota to meet the UAS needs at the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

U.S. defense company Northrop Grumman says the new office, which could house more than 100 personnel, was established to provide the Air Force with a nearby support facility for the company's RQ-4 Global Hawk UAS at Grand Forks Air Force Base.


Activities at the North Dakota office are expected to include operations to attract suppliers and subcontractors to support Northrop Grumman's RQ-4 Global Hawk program as the Air Force continues to expand its UAS requirements.

"This is another exciting addition to the high-tech hub of UAS activity we've worked to create in the Red River Valley Research Corridor," U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., said in a statement.
