Northrop to Develop Ballistic Missile Defense Discrimination Algorithms Under $475M MDA Contract

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received a potential five-year, $475 million  contract from the Missile Defense Agency to develop, integrate, test and field advanced discrimination algorithms for the Ballistic Missile Defense Systems program.

The Defense Department said Monday Northrop’s systems business will also help MDA  operate and sustain complex methods and tools used to model BMDS capacities.

DoD added the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will also cover specialized development, operations, testing, integration and maintenance support for multiple systems and MDA directorates that support the BMDS mission.

The agency intends to issue a $9.9 million initial task order for program management services and another task order worth $143 million for BMDS development support through the contract.

MDA will obligate $100,000 on the first order and $3.3 million on the second order at the time of award from the agency’s fiscal 2018 funds.

The company will perform work at various locations in Alabama, Colorado and California through March 2, 2023.
