Northrop Grumman Showcases GeoEnterprise Solutions(TM) at ESRI

 SAN DIEGO — July 22, 2005 — Northrop Grumman Corporation
(NYSE: NOC) will highlight its suite of GeoEnterprise Solutions(TM)
including geospatial intelligence applications, architectures and
enterprise-wide solutions this week at the 25th Environmental Systems
Research Institute (ESRI) International User Conference.

The exposition will be held July 25-29 at the San Diego
Convention Center.

 Northrop Grumman’s Information Technology (IT) sector will
showcase its Tracking Solutions software suite for monitoring time,
motion and change for geospatial information sharing in military,
homeland security, commercial and state and local scenarios.  In
conjunction with ESRI, Northrop Grumman IT is the developer of Tracking
Analyst and Tracking Server.  Tracking Analyst is a software desktop
tool for visualizing, displaying and analyzing temporal data.  The
Tracking Server application collects multiple data feeds and transmits
real-time, event-based information to Web clients, customer
applications and Tracking Analyst for in-depth analysis.

 Northrop Grumman IT will also feature the National
Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s Commercial Joint Mapping Toolkit, a
comprehensive toolkit of software components for the management,
analysis and visualization of map and map-related information. The
toolkit integrates government and industry capabilities into a common,
long-term solution that advances mission application development into
interoperable systems for the warfighter.

 Northrop Grumman IT will display advanced tactical systems for
the U.S. Army’s Combat Terrain Information Systems program, which
provides Army commanders with essential information through automated
terrain analysis and graphics reproduction.  The program also allows
the warfighter to maintain terrain information superiority through
terrain-based tactical decision aides, data-dissemination and
data-management capabilities in two-dimensional and three-dimensional
working environments.

 Northrop Grumman’s Mission Systems sector will introduce a new
TouchTable(TM), a 45-inch model of the seven-foot diagonal table first
shown at ESRI last year.  The system has a touch-sensitive screen that
allows users to view and manipulate complex data and high-resolution
digital imagery, such as geographic information, that cannot readily be
represented on a standard computer display.  TouchTable was developed
by Applied Minds Inc. and uses ESRI’s ArcGlobe software.

 The Mission Systems sector will also introduce the
TerrainTable(TM), a topographic modeling tool that works through a
connector to the TouchTable.  Using an array of vertical pins beneath a
silicone skin and an overhead projector, the table accurately and
realistically creates the curved surfaces of mountain ranges and
valleys.  This “electronic sand table” replicates a very convincing
topographical map.

 The exhibit will include the company’s situational awareness
solution, GeoWireless Solution, for homeland security and defense
organizations. GeoWireless Solution enhances situational awareness
through a geospatial foundation and a wireless communications
infrastructure.  This application shares geographic data seamlessly
between multiple government agencies and first responders for informed
decision making and improved situational awareness and readiness.

 Visit the Northrop Grumman exhibit at booths D60 and D66 for
more information on the company’s wireless geospatial solutions.
