Northrop Grumman awarded BAMS-D contract modification

23rd August 2013 - 11:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Department of Defence (DoD) has announced it will exercise an option to an existing cost-plus-fixed-fee contract previously awarded to Northrop Grumman.

The modification, announced on 21 August, is for additional operations and maintenance services in support of the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Demonstrator Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS).

Northrop Grumman is prime contractor on the US Navy’s BAMS programme. The BAMS-D aircraft are the pre-curser to the BAMS Triton aircraft, developed to provide the navy with a persistent maritime ISR system to protect the fleet and provide a capability to detect, track, classify, and identify maritime and littoral targets.

This modification is valued at $27.5 million, with work expected to be complete in May 2014.
