Northrop wins $20M contract to provide Navy with radar systems

Work will be performed in Baltimore, Md.

Northrop Grumman has won a $20.4 million contact with the U.S. Navy to supply three AN/SPQ-9B radar systems for amphibious and Arleigh Burke class ships.

This contract will add to the 53 radar systems that the company has already delivered, or is under contract to deliver, Northrop Grumman said in a release.

These radars will be installed on the LPD-27, LHA-7 and DDG-79 ships, improving these vessels' abilities to defend against small, high-speed threats like surface-skipping anti-ship missiles, and will be integrated into the ships' fire-control systems, the company said.

Work will be performed in Baltimore.
