Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has won a potential $95 million U.S. Navy contract to develop software and hardware for a command and control processor and data link, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
According to the company, the Next Generation Command and Control Processor is designed to provide ship-based warfighters information on friendly and enemy activity during combat.
Link 22 is a data system for NATO member nations, the company says.
The company will also provide the Navy engineering services and technology refresh field change kits under the award.
Northrop will perform work in San Diego through December 2017 and could continue work through 2019 if the Navy exercises all options.
The Pentagon said the Space and Naval Warfare System Command received three offers for the contract through a full competition via the command’s e-commerce central and the FedBizOpps websites.
SPAWAR awarded the contract through the program executive office through C4I (command, control, communication, computers and intelligence).
