Northrop Awarded $69M to Complete Navy ADM Project

Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) has been awarded follow-on and additional task order contracts totaling $69 million from the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research for the Navy’s Integrated Topside program.

Northrop reported the $66 million option award for the first contract will fund the continued development and integration of an Advanced Development Model, which aids in electronic warfare and information operations. This follows an initial $18 million base phase of the ADM project.

A second contract, worth $3 million is for the development of a low level resource manager in conjunction with other infrastructural software.

The two operations will work side-by-side, as Northrop is expected to have the ADM system completed by 2013.

The ADM system will support technology development criteria for NAVSEA’s Ships Electronic Warfare Improvement Program.
