The Army awarded Northrop $122 million on Monday and the contract will reach its potential value if all options are exercised.
Northrop will install counter-rocket, artillery and mortar systems at U.S. bases that support operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Northrop will also provide:
- systems engineering
- production and deployment
- logistics support
Northrop said the C-RAM system was deployed within 18 months of original design.
C-RAM systems have provided advance warning of more than 2, 000 attacks on bases, said Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman information systems‘ defense systems division.
