Northrop Grumman Books $50 Million LRIP Deal with Army

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) won a $50 million contract from the Army for low rate initial production of the replacement for the Integrated Family of Test Equipment and other Army off-platform testers.

According to the firm, “The Next Generation Automatic Test Station is a mobile, rapidly deployable and reconfigurable general purpose Automatic Test System suite which provides unit through depot-level maintenance testing and screening of complex electronic and electro-optical weapon systems. From factory to field, NGATS ensures combat readiness and availability.”

With the deal, the firm will deliver eight low rate initial production configuration NGATS plus spares over a five-month period beginning in July 2011.

“Low rate initial production of NGATS brings us one step closer to delivering a single system to our warfighting customers that can test all legacy, current and future weapon and vehicle systems at field, sustainment and depot work levels, ” said John Jadik, vice president of weapons and sensors for Northrop Grumman’s Land and Self Protection Systems Division. “NGATS allows for the efficient and cost effective replacement of legacy automatic test equipment.”
