Northrop Grumman Corp. will continue to provide the Army with information technology and network operations services under a five-year award that could be worth as much at $430 million if all options are exercised.
The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract from the Army’s Intelligence and Security Command at Fort Belvoir, Va., calls for Northrop Grumman to maintain its full-spectrum information operations and computer networks operations services to the 1st Information Operations Command (Land) at Fort Belvoir, and its regional Computer Emergency Response Teams.
Northrop Grumman has provided that support to the Army’s 1st Information Operations Command since 1997, company officials said.
IO coordinates multiple battlefield functions such as electronic warfare, military deception, psychological warfare, operations security and CNO to disrupt enemy decision-making while protecting information necessary for U.S. warfighters to make critical decisions, the officials said.
Northrop Grumman’s teammates on the contract include JB Management, Alexandria, Va.; Quantum Research International Inc., Huntsville, Ala.; Lockheed Martin, Bethesda, Md.; SAIC, San Diego; and Booz Allen Hamilton and QinetiQ North America, both of McLean, Va.
Northrop Grumman, of Los Angeles, ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
