WASHINGTON - April 18, 2023 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) recently completed a critical design review for its Tranche 1 Transport Layer (T1TL), part of Space Development Agency's (SDA) low-earth orbit network designed to communicate vital information to wherever it's needed to support U.S. troops on the ground quickly and securely.
