Northrop Grumman Wins Engineering, Planning Deal for New Navy Amphib. Assault Ship

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) picked up a $48 million Navy contract for “advance procurement of long-lead materials and performance of engineering/planning efforts for LHA 7, the second in the Navy’s newest class of large-deck amphibious assault ships.”

The firm will focus on engineering, planning and technical support.

The Navy issued the initial contract in June for $175 million. The work will be performed at the company’s Pascagoula facility.

“This contract modification continues the ongoing advance procurement process for the Navy’s newest large-deck amphibious ship, ” said Kevin Jarvis, program manager for large deck programs. “These large deck ships are important to the U.S. Navy’s fleet and our team is committed to quality builds. The advance procurement allows our focus to remain on our supply chain management and design development as we prepare for the eventual construction of the ship.”
