Northrop Grumman Corp. and Raytheon Missiles & Defense are teaming on the Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) digital software factory for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

The digital ecosystem will allow the program to seamlessly integrate, make critical decisions and accelerate the NGI software design and development, creating a single, secure, agile and efficient development environment and give the MDA the ability to review and collaborate on code development and release.

“By leveraging our company’s digital transformation expertise, we successfully developed, tested, demonstrated and received customer approval for our NGI software factory in record time,” said Lisa Brown, vice president of NGI program for Northrop Grumman.

Melissa Morrison-Ellis, deputy program director of the NGI at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, added, “This digital ecosystem accelerates the software development timeline, ensuring that warfighters are equipped with defensive interceptors that protect the U.S. from the threat of a rogue missile strike.”
