Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has begun construction on a new building in Albuquerque, New Mexico — the 25,000-square-foot facility will support space systems engineering and integrated mission operations services to Kirtland Air Force Base and other U.S. military customers.
In addition to national security space business operations, the site will support customers across the company’s enterprise in space system mission management and operations, and cybersecurity. Northrop Grumman is the first organization to announce its intent to occupy a stand-alone building at the new mixed-use development. Located just north of an Air Force Research Laboratory facility, construction is expected to be completed in February 2023.
“This expansion will enhance our ability to support our customers’ missions as their national security space needs evolve,” said Troy Brashear, vice president, national security systems, Northrop Grumman. “In addition to creating new aerospace jobs, we look forward to working alongside our local customers as Albuquerque flourishes as a hub for advanced space technology initiatives to protect our country.”
