Northrop Grumman has won a $226.7 million contract to provide lifecycle support for a refueling capable E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will provide the design, development, fabrication, assembly, integration, furnishing, test and evaluation, support and documentation of an in-flight refueling Hawkeye aircraft.
The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft gives the warfighter expanded battlespace awareness, especially in the area of information operations. It delivers battle management, theater air and missile defense, and multiple sensor fusion capabilities in an airborne system, Northrop Grumman said.
Work will be performed in Bethpage, N.Y., St. Augustine, Fla., Irvine, Calif., Endicott, N.Y., Ronkonkoma, N.Y., Bohemia, N.Y., and other various locations throughout the United States, and is expected to be completed in January 2019.
Funding in the amount of $8.6 million is obligated at the time of the award, and will not expire at the end of fiscal 2013.
