Northrop Grumman has won a $12 million task order to continue modernizing the Navy’s Ship Self-Defense System Mark 2 combat system.
The task order was awarded under the Navy’s SeaPort-e contract.
Under the contract, Northrop will provide a full range of engineering services.
The Mark 2 combat system is designed for anti-air defense of U.S. and coalition partner aircraft carriers and amphibious ships, coordinating the ship’s existing sensors, self-defense weapons and countermeasures to shorten the detect-to-engage cycle, Northrop Grumman said in a release.
