Northrop Grumman wins Jordanian command system deal

Northrop Grumman Corp. won a five-year contract worth more than $230 million to modernize the Jordanian armed forces' communications and IT networks and help secure the country against border threats.

Under the multiphase contract, Northrop Grumman's electronic systems sector in Baltimore will provide Jordan with two air defense systems that will enable seamless operations among the country's Army, Navy and Air Force and be interoperable with coalition forces in the region.

The company's BattleSpace Command system will offer secure data and voice communication networks to deliver critical intelligence information to military commanders in the field. It will interoperate with U.S. and coalition forces' systems.

Northrop Grumman also will provide its Radiant air defense system to the Royal Jordanian Air Force to protect against unauthorized entry into the country's airspace.

The defense contractor has worked with the Jordanian armed forces for more than 20 years.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Northrop Grumman employs more than 125,000 workers and had 2004 revenue of about $29.9 billion.

The company is No. 2 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors.
