Northrop Lands Spot on $982M Army Cyber, Electronic Warfare Support IDIQ

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has secured a spot on the U.S. Army’s potential $982M R4 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for cyber and electronic warfare capabilities.

The service will use the R4 IDIQ contract to support cyber electromagnetic activities needed to build up the force’s lethality in non-kinetic combat engagements, Northrop said Wednesday.

“Our work on R4 will help ensure our Army forces can rapidly identify, develop and leverage the full range of CEMA effects necessary to deter, deny and prevail on the battlefield,” said Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president for cyber and intelligence mission solutions at Northrop’s mission systems business.

The company will compete for cyber and EW research and technology development, integration, studies and analyses, laboratory demonstration, integrated systems development, fabrication, cybersecurity, performance verification and technical support task orders through the contract.

Northrop will carry out work on task orders through its Cincinnati-based facility.
