The U.S. Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation a $635 million cost plus fixed-fee/level of effort contract for engineering, design and modernization support of new construction, operational and decommissioning submarines.

Northrop’s Virginia-based shipbuilding sector is the prime contractor for the work on the Los Angeles-class and Seawolf-class submarines that includes technical support; management of technical manuals and drawings; and design efforts to support modernization of the ships. Work on the contract is scheduled to conclude in 2014.

This contract brings stability to the submarine program and our workforce, and the modernization work over the next five years will greatly benefit our customer.”
