Northrop to retool Air Force data management

Northrop Grumman Corp. won an $8 million contract to help manage the storage of technical data for weapons systems at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The nine-month contract includes three option years.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman's Technical Services sector will digitize technical orders and manuals, perform data mining and validation and help sustain the Air Force's Central Technical Order Repository.

The effort will improve access to technical data for weapons systems supported by the Ogden Air Logistics Center, including the A-10, F-16 and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Northrop's teammates are Select Engineering Services Inc. of Ogden, Utah, and Information Handling Services Inc. of Englewood, Colo.

The project will help ensure accurate and timely technical data is available to military personnel, said Larry Wingate, director of Fleet Sustaining Engineering at Northrop Grumman Technical Services.

"This win is an important step in executing our strategy to provide comprehensive digital technical data capabilities to our military customers," he said.

Northrop Grumman of Los Angeles has 122,000 employees and had annual sales of $30 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal contractors.
