Sensor Work Occupies Northrop Grumman

AEROSPACE: FIRM TO UPGRADE GEAR ON NAVY’S UNMANNED TRITON AIRCRAFT

The U.S. Navy recently modified two contracts with Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC), builder of the Triton unmanned aircraft. The deals will equip certain aircraft with a set of sensors designed to meet the Navy’s critical maritime intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting needs.

The Triton is a seagoing version of the company’s Global Hawk, which was developed in San Diego. The programs are based in Rancho Bernardo. Aircraft are built in Palmdale.

One deal is a $21.6 million modification to a previously awarded contract. The deal provides additional labor and material to inline modify MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system production assets B16, B17 and B18 to what is known as integrated functional capability 4.0 multiple intelligence configuration. Most of the work will be performed in San Diego (52.5%) and Palmdale (38.3%). Work is expected to be completed by December 2023.

The multi-intelligence configuration includes 360 degree AESA (active electronically scanned array) maritime radar; full-motion electro-optical infrared video streaming; high-altitude, long-endurance, full-spectrum signals intelligence; and the capacity to send multiple data types to ships, aircraft and intelligence community ground stations.

In a separate deal, the Navy awarded Northrop Grumman an $11 million modification to a previously awarded contract. The deal provides additional labor and material to incorporate production engineering change proposals that modify unmanned aircraft system B12 to an integrated functional capability 4.0 multiple intelligence configuration. Most work will be performed in San Diego (54.6%) and Palmdale (40.5%). Work is expected to be completed by June 2023.

The Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River, Maryland awarded both contracts. The deals were made public on July 28.

Under its program of record, the Navy plans to buy 68 Triton aircraft. Australia is also a customer.
