Northrop to Demo DARPA Navigation System on Android; Charles Volk Comments

NorthropLogoNorthrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has won an 18-month contract to demonstrate an open architecture navigation system on an Android mobile device for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Under the follow-on contract, the company will aim to present the system’s scalability across different types of systems and its plug-and-play features, Northrop said Monday.

Charles Volk, a vice president and a chief technologist at Northrop’s electronic systems sector, said the company intends to develop technology that is compatible with different types of sensors.

DARPA’s All Source Positioning and Navigation program seeks technology to integrate navigation sensors that work with sensors and measurements across many vendors and missions, Northrop says.

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) also holds a contract through the ASPN program, where the company will develop a prototype sensor-fusion system across three stages.
