Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton is billed as a step change for the ADF and its long range, persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities serving as a major force multiplier in Australia’s future force.
On this Defence Connect podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Chris Deeble, chief executive of Northrop Grumman Australia, to discuss the transformational capability to be delivered by the MQ-4C Triton high-altitude long-endurance (HALE) platform.
Deeble and Tarrant discuss the key role and capability the MQ-4C Triton will deliver to the ADF as it undergoes a generational transformation and force structure review identified in the government’s $270 billion 2020 Defence Strategic Update and 2020 Force Structure Plan.
Finally, they will also talk about the role Triton will play in supporting Australia’s growing sovereign defence industry capability through the partnerships developed between Northrop Grumman and Australian SMEs, despite challenges in the US.
