US Navy extends Northrop Grumman naval training collaboration

5th March 2014 - 12:59 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman will continue work to develop and improve the combat systems trainers in use with the US Navy under a task order worth up to $33 million announced on 4 March.

The task order is part of the SeaPort-e IDIQ contract directed by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport.

The work will see Northrop Grumman provide designs, prototypes and products for new and updated training systems that offer enhanced training realism while being more affordable and easier to operate.

The company will also conduct system analysis and development, technology refresh, product assurance and performance evaluation. The training capabilities will be used to prepare sailors for important operations such as navigation, sensor control and weapons launching.

Jack Dorsett, vice president of C2 systems, Northrop Grumman Information Systems, said: ‘Northrop Grumman is pleased to extend its decades-long partnership with the navy in the creation and enhancement of command and control (C2) training systems solutions that are higher performing, less expensive, and easier to build and operate. We accomplish the objectives without losing fidelity – these systems provide realistic training that allows our sailors to train as they fight.’
