Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector has won a $35.7 million contract modification with the Air Force for Global Hawk engineering and manufacturing development.
This modification is to a contract that is valued at $2.3 billion.
Northrop Grumman’s Global Hawk is an unmanned aerial vehicle that provides a broad overview and systematic surveillance using a high-resolution radar and electro-optical and infrared sensors.
This is the second contract that the company has won this month for its Global Hawk UAV, and comes after the company just made two strategic hires related to UAVs in March.
Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif., and is expected to be completed by January 2017.
