Northrop wins $80M contact to upgrade tactical data link processor

Company was first selected to develop the processor in 2008

Northrop Grumman has won a $80 million contract with the U.S. Navy to upgrade its tactical data link processor.

Under the contract, the company will provide software and hardware system development, engineering services and technology refresh field change kits for the communication processors aboard naval surface ships, the company said in a release.

The Next Generation Command and Control Processor, or NGC2P, is a tactical data link communication processor that provides real-time information about friendly and enemy activity during combat operations, the company said in a release.

Northrop Grumman said that it was first selected to develop the NGC2P in 2008.

"Having supported SPAWAR PMW-150 since the early 1990s, Northrop Grumman is proud of our record as a reliable partner able to respond rapidly to customer requirements," said Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems division for Northrop Grumman Information Systems.
