Northrop Wins Potential $637M SPAWAR Network Contract

The U.S. Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) a potential $637, 773, 236 contract to provide shipboard networks, the Pentagon announced Wednesday.

Through an initial $36, 646, 047 delivery order, the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command selected Northrop to install the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services program on 54 ships.

Capt. D.J. LeGoff, CANES program manager, said at a briefing last week that the Navy will own the CANES design. The Navy will hold continuous competitions based on the original design until the entire SPAWAR fleet has the network.

The Navy will award a contract in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 to install CANES on more ships.
