Northrop Grumman has agreed to buy Qantas Defense Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qantas Airways that provides support for the Royal Australian Air Force, for an undisclosed sum.

The American defense contractor, responsible for such legendary aircraft as the B-2, is attempting through this purchase to increase their international exposure.

The sale of Qantas Defense Services by Qantas Airways solidifies a shift of focus to the domestic airline.
