Northrop Grumman Claims $26 Million B-1 Bomber Deal

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) secured a delivery order from the Air Force for the B-1 Bomber aircraft mission planning capability on the Joint Mission Planning System platform.

The order carries a potential value of $26 million, if all options are exercised.

According to the firm, “the JMPS is a family of scalable, extensible and configurable tools and decision aids that automate planning for sensor, weapon or aircraft missions ranging from day-to-day training and proficiency flying to peacetime operational/exercise sorties and complex combat scenarios.”

“We have been privileged to maintain a close relationship with the B-1 Bomber community that gives us insight into the warfighter’s perspective, ” said Mike Twyman, vice president of integrated command, control, communications and intelligence systems for Northrop Grumman Information Systems. “This is especially important as mission planning and execution cycles become a continuous process. We remain committed to being responsive to the warfighter’s needs to drive the features and capabilities we deliver.”
