Northrop Receives $124M Navy Contract Modification

Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $123.5M contract modification by the U.S. Navy for the tools and services needed to integrate the military service's Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures system onto aircraft.

The company shall provide the necessary hardware, systems engineering, technical support, analysis and studies. Northrop's previously awarded contract is a fixed-price, incentive-firm-target deal. 

The contractor shall support the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and the governments of Norway and New Zealand. Work is expected to be completed by July 2022, the Department of Defense reported.

Most of the work will be performed in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, and Goleta, California. The rest will be done in Longmont, Colorado, Blackburg, Virginia, Lewisburg, Tennessee, Boulder, Colorado, Carlsbad, California, Apopka, Florida, and other locations in the continental United States.

Northrop's contract includes the provision of 418 advanced threat warning sensors, 272 high capacity cards, 160 Personal Computer Memory Card International Association cards, 64 Guardian Laser Transmitter Assemblies and 64 GLTA shipping containers.

The contractor shall also provide 48 Control Indicator Unit Replaceable, 14 Smart Connector Assemblies and six Multi-Role Electro Optical End-to-End Test Sets, among others. 

About $76.23M from the Navy's fiscal 2020 aircraft procurement funds will be obligated at the time of the award. Funds will also be taken from the Air Force's fiscal 2020 procurement funds, the Navy's 2020 research, development, and test and evaluation funds.

Some obligated funds will also be taken from the defense-wide fiscal 2019 procurement funds, the Navy's 2018 and 2019 aircraft procurement funds, and foreign military sales funds.  

Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
