The work on this contract will be performed primarily in the Norfolk, Va., and Fort Meade, Md. areas and in various locations around the world. Northrop Grumman’s partners include Calhoun International, Tampa, Fla.; TeleCommunication Systems, Inc., Annapolis, Md.; Client/Server Software Solutions, Inc, Omaha, Neb.; Goldbelt Hawk, Newport News, Va.; JB Management, Alexandria, Va.; and K2 Group, Vienna, Va.

  • Include Informal networking time to talk to peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing Maritime ISR programs today
