Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received a four-year, $172.4M contract modification from the U.S. Navy to produce and deliver two unmanned air systems designed for maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

The company will build MQ-4 Triton UAS units and a main operating base for the vehicles as well as perform trade studies and provide related administrative and technical data, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Naval Air Systems Command will obligate the full amount of the modification from the service branch's fiscal 2020 aircraft procurement funds.

Contract work will take place at various locations within and outside the continental U.S. through January 2024.
