Northrop Grumman Corp., headquartered in Century City, is a conglomeration of nearly two dozen military and aerospace companies, including TRW, Litton and Westinghouse — most of them acquired in the last two decades. 1939: John K. "Jack" Northrop forms a namesake military-aircraft-making company in Hawthorne. He builds its first aircraft, the N-3PB patrol bomber, in 1940. 1946: Jack Northrop designs and builds the first XB-35 flying wing, which would be the basis for the development of the radar-evading B-2 stealth bomber more than 40 years later.

California repealed a much-disputed $95-million computer software contract with Oracle Corp. on Tuesday and will lose no money under the deal, according to Gov.

Much like Northrop Grumman Corp.'s stealthy B-2 bomber, the company's chief executive has flown under the radar for most of his career overseeing the development of many of the nation's top-secret weapons. Unassuming and devoid of the cigar-chomping flamboyance that distinguished aerospace executives in the past, Ronald Sugar -- a former whiz kid from South Los Angeles -- often shuns the limelight. Yet few in aerospace are as influential to the nation's defense and security.
