The US Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman a follow on contract to provide logistics support for navigation systems. The three year contract is worth $42 million and follows the initial five year award of $14.8 million.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit will provide performance based logistics support for navigation and steering systems that are in use on US Navy surface vessels and submarines. Sperry Marine will provide configuration management, material management, and program management services along with technical support and spare parts for navigation and radar systems.
Jeffrey Holloway, Sperry Marine director of US Defense Business Developlment, Marketing, Sales and Melville, NY operations for Northrop Grumman, said “Over the course of the five-year PBL contract, Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine has consistently achieved an outstanding record of performance, with 99 percent on-time deliveries in support of these mission-critical systems deployed in the fleet. We look forward to continuing our focused support of these key navigation, ship control and submarine systems in the U.S. Navy’s operational fleets.”
