Northrop Grumman has received a 12-month, $349.6 million contract from the US Air Force (USAF) for continued Total System Support Responsibility (TSSR) of the E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) fleet.

Under the contract, the company will continue to provide programme management, engineering technical support, supply chain and spares management, aircrew training, technical data and customer support to maximise aircraft availability for operational and training operations.

Under the Joint STARS TSSR programme, Northrop Grumman works with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center to provide integrated logistics support to the 116th and 461st Air Control Wings for all facets of sustainment and support of the Joint STARS fleet at Robins Air Force Base and forward operating locations overseas.

Joint STARS is a USAF airborne ground surveillance, battle management and command and control aircraft. It provides battlefield commanders real-time situational information, while simultaneously transmitting target locations to aircraft and ground strike forces.
