US Navy awards USD 28 mln contract to Northrop Grumman

BETHPAGE, NEW YORK (BNS): Northrop Grumman Corporation has received a $28 million contract from the US Navy for engineering and production planning services for surface warfare and mine countermeasures mission module components that will deploy from, and integrate with, the littoral combat ship (LCS).

"As the mission package integrator, Northrop Grumman continues to demonstrate its ability to provide the Navy with fully integrated mission modules that fit seamlessly with the seaframes," Doug Shaffer, director of information operations and electronic attack, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, was quoted as saying in the company news release.

Each mission package comprises a specific set of subsystems such as data processing equipment, vehicles and sensors, and others.

These mission packages integrate specialised manned and unmanned systems that must operate in a combination of air, surface and subsurface domains.

The capabilities contained in each mission package focus on mine countermeasures, littoral anti-submarine warfare or littoral surface warfare operations.

Northrop Grumman has delivered two surface warfare mission modules and is nearing completion of delivering its first mine countermeasures mission module for LCS. The second Northrop Grumman-produced mine countermeasures mission module is currently in production as well, the release added.
