Northrop Grumman has won a $24.8 million performance-based logistics contract with the Navy to continue its support for three of its shipboard systems.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will provide 150 repair assembly kits and spare parts for the WSN-7 ring laser gyro, the AN/BPS-15/16 submarine radar detecting and range set, and the DDG steering and scalable integrated bridge systems for guided missile destroyers, the company said.
These systems are used on Navy ships and submarines, as well as on foreign military sales surface ships.
This contract is a continuation of work that the company has done for the Navy for the past nine years, the company said.
"This material arrangement allows the Navy to affordably and promptly support these major shipboard systems and minimize down time while continuing to conduct critical maritime operations,” said Bill Hannon, vice president of the company’s Maritime Systems business unit.
