Contract Award – Northrop Grumman – $3.3 Million – US Air Force

Northrop Grumman Corporation has been awarded by the U.S. Air Force a task order under the A-10 Thunderbolt Life-cycle Program Support indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity program to develop and test an anti-jam embedded GPS and inertial navigation unit for the A-10C.

The $3.3 million cost-plus fixed-fee hybrid task order entails performing an integrated architecture and life-cycle costs analysis and installing a temporary modification. The company will also develop a system-safety program and provide program and engineering management support to conduct an operational assessment of the EGI capability during flight test.

“Our unparalleled experience and demonstrated success with avionics systems integration combined with a low-cost, low-risk replacement for the current A-10 EGI made us an easy choice for the Air Force, ” said Doug Hamel, Northrop Grumman Technical Services program manager for the contract.
