Northrop Grumman announces UK Sentry FQIS order
Northrop Grumman will design, develop, integrate, test and support a Fuel Quantity Indicator System (FQIS) for the UK’s Sentry E-3D Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft under a new contract modification issued by the UK Ministry of Defence.
The work will be performed under Northrop Grumman's existing Sentry E-3D Whole Life Support Programme (WLSP). The contract modification for FQIS is valued at more than $17 million over three years.
Northrop Grumman delivers the WLSP for the Sentry E-3D AWACS fleet and is on contract until 2025. The company acts as the design organisation providing long-term UK-based technical support to the programme located at RAF Waddington.
Kevin Longman, Sentry programme director, Northrop Grumman Technical Services, said: ’Our industry team's design organisation status and our strong partnering relationship with the MoD were undoubtedly paramount in our selection as integrator of the FQIS solution for the Sentry programme. We look forward to delivering this important system upgrade that will contribute toward sustaining the AWACS platform.’
