Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) won a $41.9 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to mature proposed technologies for the U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Jammer airborne electronic attack system development.
According to the firm, “the Navy is developing the Next Generation Jammer to field a system that can electronically attack the advanced electronics being developed by other nations’ militaries and the commercially available electronics that terrorists regularly use to communicate, coordinate operations and adapt as weapons. The jammer must be capable of countering anticipated and unanticipated electronic threats.”
“I’m very proud of the technical work we did on our proposal. We’re excited to have won this award and to get started bringing our technologies to life for our customer, ” said Steve Hogan, vice president, Information Operations and Electronic Attack.
