Northrop Grumman's Australian subsidiary, Northrop Grumman Australia Pty Limited, has completed its acquisition of Australian aerospace and defense company Qantas Defence Services.
The acquisition will allow Northrop Grumman to expand its Australian footprint, as the company seeks more international opportunities for unmanned, cyber, C4ISR and modernization growth. The new company will be called Northrop Grumman Integrated Defence Services Pty Limited (IDS).
"Northrop Grumman IDS enhances our in-country footprint and local capabilities, and demonstrates our commitment to the Australian and regional defense markets. We expect this to be an important platform for international growth in our key focus areas of unmanned, cyber, C4ISR, and logistics and modernization," said Ian Irving, Northrop Grumman chief executive for Australia.
