Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) will continue to provide technical services for the U.S. Air Force‘s global simulation training programunder an exclusive five-year $490 million deal with the military.
The Ohio-based Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity firm-fixed-priced contract with options to extend until 2023, Northrop said Tuesday.
Most of the work to consolidate systems and support various platforms for the Distributed Missions Operations Network 2.0 will take place in Orlando, Florida.
“For more than a decade, we have been proud to support critical warfighter training, ” said Mike Twyman, Northrop Grumman Information Systems sector vice president and general manager for defense systems.
Lisa Harris, DMON 2.0 program manager in Orlando, added the company will continue to help the Air Force explore the training program’s full potential.
DMON was designed to allow synchronized and coordinated training across various aircraft platforms of international defense forces.
Northrop Grumman said it has helped integrate systems for the initiative since it was launched in 1999.
