Northrop Wins $91M to Add Data Link Tech to Unmanned Army Vehicles

The U.S. Army has awarded Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) $91.2 million in contract modifications to reset unmanned MQ-5B Hunter systems with interoperable tactical common data link technology.

The TCDL is a secure link designed to transmit data and live video from the air to the ground.  Northrop said in a release its work will include resetting the air vehicles, ground stations and data terminals with TCDL technology.

“With additional Hunters fielded with TCDL, our nation’s warfighters are further equipped with greater bandwidth and encryption, safeguarding vital information,” said Kevin Goates, director of Northrop’s unmanned systems sustainment center.
