Joseph Ensor

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received a potential seven-year, $866 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to modify and sustain a network of ground-based radar systems used by the service to perform missile warning and space monitoring operations.

The contract will cover work on several radars that support the Air Force Space Command such as the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System, Perimeter Acquisition Radar Attack Characterization System and the Precision Acquisition Vehicle Entry Phased Array Warning System, Northrop said Wednesday.

Joseph Ensor, vice president and general manager of Northrop’s space and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems division, said the company will work to support the Air Force’s missile attack detection efforts and provide space situational awareness capabilities to warfighters.

Ensor added the contract win seeks to reflect the service’s trust in the company’s radar, engineering and sustainment experience.

Work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will occur in Maryland, Colorado and other radar sites worldwide.
