SAN ANTONIO - Supporting its growing presence in the region, Northrop Grumman Corporation will open its newest cyber operations in a 7,700-square-foot facility at Port San Antonio—one of the largest technology complexes in South Texas.
Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company whose services include providing innovative systems, products and solutions in autonomous systems, cyber, C415R, strike, logistics and modernization to an array of customers worldwide.
Earlier this month, the company announced the award of a new Cyber Mission Platform contract. That work for the Cryptologic and Cyber Systems Division of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) will be performed in San Antonio, including at the upcoming facility at the Port.
Several military cybersecurity operations are based on the Port campus, in close proximity to Northrop Grumman’s new offices.
“We are thrilled to grow our presence in San Antonio,” said Bobby Lentz, vice president, Global Cyber Solutions, Cyber and Intelligence Mission Solutions Division, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. “Dedicated to supporting the Air Force’s cyber mission needs, this new space features a cyber integration lab that will enhance collaboration and leverage expertise from across Northrop Grumman to generate technology solutions quickly and affordably. This new space also marks another step in our plan to grow our presence in the local area.”
Deliberately situated close to its customer at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, which also operates large cybersecurity headquarter operations at the Port, the new space will house an expanded team of employees exclusively working on military cyber programs, including Cyber Mission Platform, as well as future programs.
In addition to the cyber integration lab, which will be connected to a larger network of collaborative environments at Northrop Grumman, the space will feature meeting space, a user experience capability to enhance process improvements and workflow, warehouse space and production facilities.
The company’s upcoming facility at the Port will provide the important operational flexibility including a cyber integration lab, meeting space, and production and logistics spaces.
“We are very proud to add a globally-renowned name to the growing list of cybersecurity operations on our large campus,” said Port President & CEO Roland Mower. “Northrop Grumman’s expansion here underscores San Antonio’s standing as a global center of cybersecurity excellence. We and our partners look forward to providing our newest customer with all necessary strategic support to ensure their long-term success as an important player in one of our community’s key economic sectors.”
“The San Antonio region offers an exceptional talent pool, proximity to our customer, and opportunities to expand partnerships with local small business,” added Lentz. “We look forward to working closely with our local Air Force customer and building on our strong business and community partnership.
