Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has received an approximately $121.5 million performance-based-logistics requirements contract from the Defense Logistics Agency for B-1 Bomber AN/APQ-164 offensive radar low observable antennas.

Requirements will be delivered to the U.S. Air Force through Dec. 31, 2028, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

The firm‐fixed‐price, sole-source contract has a five-year base period and one five-year option period. Northrop will perform work in Oklahoma.

DLA Aviation, which serves as the contracting activity, will use defense working capital funds for fiscal 2024 through 2029 to cover for the acquisition.

The B-1 aircraft is designed to provide the Air Force with long-range strike capability and large and varied payload. Meanwhile, AN/APQ-164, the aircraft’s offensive radar system, is used for target detection, location, tracking and accurate weapon delivery.
