Redondo Beach, Calif. – April 3, 2024 – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is collaborating with EpiSci to further develop advanced, trusted autonomous tactical solutions for the United States and its allies.

EpiSci’s TacticalAI software will integrate into Northrop Grumman’s aeronautics system architecture to accelerate the delivery of advanced autonomous solutions.  

“Northrop Grumman collaborates with innovative small businesses, like EpiSci, to help meet the needs of our customers,” said Tom Pieronek, chief technology officer and vice president, research and technology, Aeronautics Systems, Northrop Grumman. “Collaboration is one way to rapidly bring new capabilities to the warfighter while building upon Northrop Grumman’s decades of autonomy experience to create distinct advantages over adversarial threats.”
