Northrop Wins $106M For AF Comm Payloads

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has won a $106, 364, 282 contract modification to continue operating communications payloads for U.S. Air Force manned and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Defense Department said Thursday three Battlefield Airborne Communications Node payloads will continue operating on the Global Express BD-700 and three Global Hawk drones.

Work under the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract will occur at various locations within and outside the U.S where BACN payloads are currently deployed.

The Pentagon expects the work to finish by June 22, 2013 and Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass. is the contracting activity.

Northrop recently signed a $1.7 billion agreement with NATO to provide five Global Hawks for a ground surveillance program.
