CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - A major global aerospace and defense security company is in town to convince the community to supply Warren Air Force Base with the next generation missile.

Warren is one of three strategic missile bases in the country. Northrop Grumman specializes in global innovative systems and solutions for commercial customers worldwide.

They work on applications for a variety of fields from undersea to outer space...and even into cyberspace.

Carol Erikson, of Northrop Grumman, says, "As we engage with the communities, we really want to understand some of the local challenges. Some of the examples would be limitations on the roads or limitations on the local power...communications... infrastructures."

Northrop Grumman is in the running with Boeing and Lockheed-Martin for the design contract.
