RQ-4 Global HawkNorthrop Grumman and the U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command recently conducted ground and air demonstrations for the RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft.

The demonstrations were held at Beale Air Force Base, Calif. in January to show split-link capability for mission data transmission separate from the command-and-control link, Northrop said Thursday.

“We’re ecstatic with Global Hawk’s ability to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance products to operational end-users via multiple paths,” said Alfredo Ramirez, director and chief architect of Northrop’s HALE Enterprise.

The Global Hawk system is used for a variety of missions, including anti-terrorism, disaster relief, humanitarian assistance and airborne communications.
