Northrop to provide technical computer refresh for US, Bahrain helos
The IDIQ contract covers delivery of production units, retrofit units and spare units for the US Marine Corps, Defense Logistics Agency and the government of Bahrain under the Foreign Military Sales Act.
This contract brings together multiple mission computer customers, which will lead to cost efficiencies and a reduced logistics footprint.
Under the IDIQ, the US Navy may issue task or delivery order awards up to the contract amount, and work is due to complete in 2023.
‘Northrop Grumman’s mission computer delivers mission critical capability to the warfighter,’ James Conroy, vice president of land and avionics for C4ISR at the company, said.
‘The system provides improved situational understanding in the rapidly changing threat environment.’
The mission computer integrates mission, weapons and video processing capabilities into an airborne computer capable of driving independent, multi-function displays.
The open architecture provides centralised display and control of all integrated avionics system functions, and the mission computer brings improved capability, commonality, reliability and maintainability.
