Northrop Grumman Corporation, BETHPAGE, N.Y: Northrop Grumman Corporation will be demonstrating the capabilities of its Hawkeye 2000 airborne early warning aircraft at the Aero India 2005 Air Show from Feb 9-13 in Bangalore, India.

The company designed, developed and produces the Hawkeye 2000 for the U.S. Navy. It is currently offering the aircraft to the Indian navy as the solution to its requirements for an airborne early-warning and battle-management command-and-control system. India is one of a growing number of countries looking at the Hawkeye 2000 to help satisfy the demand for integrated defense capabilities.

“Six nations now own Hawkeyes,” said Timothy Farrell, vice president and leader of Northrop Grumman's integrated product team on airborne early warning programs. “That's more than any other airborne early warning and battle management system in the world. The purchase of new Hawkeye 2000s and the upgrade of existing E-2C fleets demonstrate the confidence that nations have in the Hawkeye and their understanding of the need for an advanced, integrated airborne-surveillance and battle-management system
