Northrop Receives Navy MQ-4C UAS Test Order

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received a $40.6 million order to conduct a full-scale fatigue test and an effect-of-defect evaluation on the U.S. Navy’s Triton MQ-4C unmanned aircraft system.

The company will additionally help the service branch examine system fatigue and damage tolerance of the autonomously operated system through post-test activities, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Naval Air Systems Command tasked Northrop to analyze and document test findings.

NAVAIR issued the award under a basic ordering agreement and expects the work to finish in February 2028.

The autonomously operated MQ-4C system is built with a multisensor package that works to help the service branch collect intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data across maritime zones.
