Northrop Grumman and Australia

  1. 1. Top Secret: Northrop Grumman's Secret Plan for Global Domination Source: Wikimedia Commons
  2. 2. Big Opportunities Down Under According to Australia's most recent published defense budget, the country plans to expand defense spending by 21% through 2016-2017. $2.9 billion is earmarked to buy a dozen Boeing EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft.
  3. 3. Bigger Opportunities in 10 Years Then Australia plans to really stomp on the gas ... and grow spending 45% from 2014 levels in 2022-2023. Within less than a decade, Australia could be spending $36.7 billion on defense annually.
  4. 4. Buying a Foot in the Door This summer, Northrop agreed to invest $7.4 million to buy three global supply chain partners in Australia. Electro Optic Systems in Mt. Stromlo and CEA Technologies and Insitec in Fyshwick, do work in aerospace hardware, space exploration, and software design ... Buying them gets Northrop a foot in the door.
  5. 5. Qantas Had a Defense Business?! Last week, Northrop agreed to buy the Qantas Defence Services Pty Limited subsidiary of Qantas Airways. “QDS” maintains Australia's fleet of Lockheed C-130H Hercules and P-3 Orions, Boeing’s B737- 700IGWs, Sikorsky S- 70A-9 Black Hawks, BAE Hawk 127s and EADS KC-30A Multi Role Tanker s -- and does $125 million in annual business. .
  6. 6. Introducing the Triton Australia recently expressed interest in buying Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to bolster its naval surveillance airfleet. Estimates of this drone’s cost go as high as $80 million apiece – and up.
  7. 7. 6.6% International Revenue? Sounds Like a Good Place to Start. The more you look, the more it looks like Northrop Grumman is building a military contracting empire Down Under. If it succeeds, Northrop’s “problem” with selling too few weapons internationally, may turn into its biggest opportunity yet.
