February 9, 2010

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has appointed Linnie Haynesworth vice president and deputy program director for the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS).

In this position, Haynesworth will remain responsible for
execution of the current program of record, for which Northrop Grumman
Aerospace Systems sector is the prime contractor. The White House
announced Feb. 1 that NPOESS, a dual weather-climate satellite program
being developed for the U.S. Air Force and the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), would be terminated.

"Linnie Haynesworth has provided outstanding leadership on
this very challenging program," said Dave DiCarlo, sector vice
president and general manager of Northrop Grumman Space Systems
division. "As responsibility for delivering these essential
capabilities is transferred to new programs, Linnie will play a key
role ensuring a smooth transition while making sure we continue to
meet our commitments."

"With her extensive knowledge of the customers, subcontractors,
required capabilities and risk-management issues, Linnie Haynesworth
will help shape our future weather and climate monitoring efforts,"
said Dave Vandervoet, vice president and NPOESS program director.

Haynesworth had been NPOESS deputy director since June 2008 and
has more than 30 years of experience with the company. She has held
business development, functional and program positions of increasing
responsibility in multiple sectors of the company. Her program
experience includes government, commercial and international
partnerships. Prior to this assignment, she led the former Space
Technology subcontracts organization.

Haynesworth earned a bachelor's degree in electrical
engineering from the University of Southern California. She has
attended numerous executive leadership courses, including the Northrop
Grumman LEAD1NG program and the UCLA executive leadership program.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global security
company whose 120,000 employees provide innovative systems, products
and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems,
shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial
customers worldwide.
