Northrop continues Hawkeye UAV support with $7.2M contract

Northrop Grumman has won a $7.2 million contract to provide software sustainment in support of the Navy’s  E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Program.

The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the Navy’s carrier-based Airborne Early Warning and Battle Management Command and Control aircraft.

First flown in 2007, the aircraft has advanced radar sensor and network-enabled capabilities, providing situational awareness to the warfighter, Northrop Grumman said on its website.

The contract supports the full rate production Lot 2 E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft, according to the Defense Department.

Work will be performed in Melbourne, Fla., Liverpool, N.Y., and Greenlawn, Fla., and is expected to be completed in March 2015.

Northrop Grumman won a similar contract to support the Advanced Hawkeye program with engineering services at the end of August.
