Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems has been awarded a $20.1 million option to support the Navy Program Executive Office, Littoral Combat Ship’s Airborne Laser Mine Detection Systems (ALMDS).
ALMDS is a laser-based system which uses streak tube imaging light detection and ranging to detect, classify, and localize surface and near-surface moored sea mines, the Defense Department said in a release.
Under the contract, the company will also provide depot services and software support.
Work is expected to wrap up in March 2018.
