Company is Anchor Tenant for New UAS Business and Aviation Park
On 21 April, Northrop Grumman officially opened a new facility dedicated to fostering autonomous systems and associated capabilities. The facility is at the Grand Sky UAS Business and Aviation Park near Grand Forks, ND, for which Northrop Grumman is the anchor tenant.
The facility will serve as a nucleus for R&D, pilot, operator and maintainer training, operations and mission analysis, and aircraft maintenance. The new, advanced 36,000sqft building was initially completed late last year and the first employees began work shortly thereafter. The company is also planning construction of a hangar to take advantage of the Park’s access to the adjacent Grand Forks Air Force Base, home to a squadron of RQ-4 GLOBAL HAWK high altitude long endurance autonomous aircraft.
