Northrop Grumman has received a technology recognition for the company’s Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system from San Diego-based innovation company accelerator Connect.
Connect presented the William W. Otterson Award at the company’s Most Innovative New Products ceremony on Dec. 1, 2015, Northrop said Tuesday.
“Global Hawk has always been on the cutting edge of innovation, from its first flight in 1998 to our current efforts to fly any current or future sensor at any time,” said Mick Jaggers, vice president and program manager of Global Hawk at Northrop Grumman.
The award–named after Internet entrepreneur William W. Otterson, who served as Connect’s first executive director–is given for Global Hawk’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance performance and for its role in science and disaster relief missions.
