Northrop Receives $189M Air Force Contract for CAF Distributed Mission Operations Support

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has secured a potential two-year, $189 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide Combat Air Forces Distributed Mission Operations services.

The Department of Defense said Thursday the sole-source contract includes the development of a virtual environment designed to facilitate distributed training events, including large-scale exercises and daily team training, for Air Force trainers across the world.

According to the performance work statement, the contract covers the establishment of interoperability standards that could help document common formats for dissimilar trainers and facilitate data sharing for effective training.

Under the CAF DMO program, the vendor will also provide a security platform that could enable trainers of different security levels to train together.

Work will occur in Orlando, Florida, through June 21, 2026.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Simulators division at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, will obligate $35.4 million using operation and maintenance funds for fiscal years 2024 and 2025.
