Northrop Grumman‘s (NYSE: NOC) innovation systems segment has received a $173.7M contract modification from the U.S. Army to supply M1156 kits designed to transform artillery projectiles into GPS-guided weapons.

The service obligated the full amount at the time of award from its fiscal 2019 “other” procurement funds, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
