Northrop Grumman Information Systems has won a $9.2 million contract modification to continue its support of the Air Force’s Enhanced Polar System Control and Planning Segment protected key management architecture.
The EPS Control and Planning Segment provides space-enabled, secure communications capabilities to polar users in support of national objectives, Northrop Grumman said on its website.
Under the contract, Northrop will assist in transitioning from the current KMA to the protected satellite communication KMA by providing factory testing and support for operational transitional planning.
Work will be performed at El Segundo, Calif., and is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2017.
