Defence Connect Podcast Network

Dec 20, 2023

In this special Defence Connect podcast recorded at Indo-Pacific 2023, host Steve Kuper is joined by NGA chief executive Christine Zeitz and Northrop Grumman’s maritime/land systems and sensors division general manager Ingrid Vaughan and senior director for strategy and business development Tom Wears.

The group begin discussing their key highlights and takeaways from the first few days of the 2023 Indo-Pacific Maritime Exhibition and Sea Power Conference, with much of the emphasis on the AUKUS trilateral partnership.

They discuss Northrop Grumman’s global role and expertise in the key areas across AUKUS Pillars I and II, with a heavy emphasis on the developing realm of cyber and quantum computing, among others.

They also discuss Northrop Grumman’s little-known role in supporting the US nuclear submarine program and central role in the supply chain for the US Navy’s Virginia Class submarines.

Finally, they discuss the key links and connections Northrop Grumman Australia enjoys with the global organisation that allows it to leverage the company’s skills, experience and expertise in a mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationship that builds real, in-country capability here in Australia.
