C4ISR: Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, Redondo Beach, CA
Northrop Grumman develops C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) systems to augment the US military's visualization of remote conflict zones. These systems bring together information from the air, the surface of the earth, and below ground with data from sensors, imaging technologies, radar, sonar, lidar, and eyewitness reports.
Incendiary Traces gathered at Northrop Grumman's Aerospace Headquarters to contemplate looking, drawing, recording, and representing landscape at the home of military "sight."
Incendiary Traces considers crisis mapping as another form of visualization that can help us, as ordinary citizens, understand seemingly remote wars.
