Northrop Gets $2.31B Air Force Contract for Minuteman III ICBM Maintenance Support

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received a potential $2.31 billion contract to provide program management and sustaining engineering support services for the propulsion subsystem of the U.S. Air Force’s Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile.

Work includes maintenance engineering, systems and equipment modification, software and hardware maintenance, procurement, repair and refurbishment, development and production engineering, materials and subcomponent analysis and aging surveillance test and evaluation, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

The contractor will also help identify anomalous behavior, aging mechanism and potential modifications to the ICBM system.

Work will occur in Corinne and Magna, Utah, through Nov. 5, 2040.

The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center at Hill Air Force Base in Utah is the contracting activity and obligated $10.6 million in fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance funds at the time of award.

In September, Northrop secured a $13.3B contract for the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent program that will replace the Minuteman III ICBM system.
