Could you imagine a better reference for security technology than the worlds most sophisticated unmanned aircraft?
The Norwegian defence industry is widely acclaimed, and we have for decades developed technology that have become key components of the some of the worlds most sophisticated systems and machinery. This has also given Norwegian R&D a reputation for being cutting-edge, which has been a fantastic platform in our attempts to equip armed forces in NATO with the best security – for sensitive data and information. It’s a undisputed fact that documents and data in the military needs to be guarded well, and systems like Global Hawk contain information that it is critical to keep away from the wrong hands.

Encrypted and protected from the enemy
The Global Hawk is one of the most advanced aircrafts in the world, and it plays a crucial part in the surveillance work carried out by the United States Air Force. Its used to support forces all over the world, and the drone contains contains systems and information that have cost many billion US dollars to develop. Hence, this data needs to be secure, and kept away from the wrong hands. The worlds smartest data systems also need the best protection, and therefore we are extremely proud that our encryption technology is used to encrypt and protect all data on Global Hawk. This means that if the aircraft malfunctions or is shot down, the wrong people cant get to the information that they crave.

Facts from Wikipedia:
The Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk is an unmanned (UAV) surveillance aircraft. It was initially designed by Ryan Aeronautical (now part of Northrop Grumman), and known as Tier II+ during development. The Global Hawk performs a similar role as the Lockheed U-2. The RQ-4 provides a broad overview and systematic surveillance using high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and long-range electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors with long loiter times over target areas. It can survey as much as 40,000 square miles (100,000 km2) of terrain a day.
The Global Hawk is operated by the United States Air Force. It is used as a high-altitude platform covering the spectrum of intelligence collection capability to support forces in worldwide military operations. According to the United States Air Force, the superior surveillance capabilities of the aircraft allow more precise weapons targeting and better protection of friendly forces. Cost overruns led to the original plan to acquire 63 aircraft being cut to 45, and to a 2013 proposal to mothball the 21 Block 30 signals intelligence variants. Each aircraft was to cost US$60.9 million in 2001, but this had risen to $222.7 million per aircraft (including development costs) by 2013. The U.S. Navy has developed the Global Hawk into the MQ-4C Triton maritime surveillance platform.
