Northrop Grumman to Compete for USCG NAIS

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) announced at the U.S. Coast Guard Innovation Expo in New Orleans its intent to lead a team that will compete to design, integrate, install and test the Coast Guard's Nationwide Automatic Identification System (NAIS). NAIS will be a two-way maritime digital communication system, which will continually transmit and receive voiceless exchange of vessel data, including vessel identity, position, speed, course, destination and other data of critical interest for navigation safety, marine mobility and maritime security. The program will focus on improving maritime security, marine and navigational safety, search and rescue, and environmental protection services. In addition, data collected by NAIS will be combined with other government intelligence and surveillance data to form a holistic view of maritime situational awareness, in part by identifying vessels still hundreds of miles offshore. The Northrop Grumman team includes Allied Technology Group, Inc., Rockville, Md.; CACI International, Inc., Arlington, Va.; Washington Group International, Inc., Boise, Idaho; ICAN, Inc., Dallas; True Heading AB, Stockholm, Sweden; Broadpoint, Inc., New Orleans; and GTSI Corp., Chantilly, Va.
