Northrop Subsidiary Wins NATO Air Traffic Control Contract

A Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) subsidiary has won a follow-on NATO contract to provide an air traffic control receiver site in Afghanistan, the company announced Wednesday.

Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, the company’s Europe-based air traffic management subsidiary, won the original contract in 2010 to install an air traffic control communications system at Kandahar Air Force Base.

NATO’s consultation, command and control agency awarded the contract.

The Falls Church, Va.-based contractor said the company has provided communications services to NATO for more than 20 years.

The new receiver site will house 16 very high frequency and ultra high frequency radios.

Charles Houseago, managing director of the subsidiary’s U.K. division, said the company will provide its Park Air T6 radio series for the new receiver site.

The parent company and DRS Technologies’ parent Finmeccanica won a NATO contract in February to provide cybersecurity and computer management services.

NATO’s consultation, command and control agency awarded that contract as well.
