WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 (UPI) — Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Military Aircraft Systems, was awarded a $14 million U.S. Navy contract modification for the Japanese E-2D Hawkeye aircraft.
The modification to the previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-firm target contract covers spares and support equipment for the government of Japan.
Work will be performed in Indiana, Florida, New York, Illinois, California and various other locations in the continental United States.
The expected completion date is April 2019.
Naval Air Systems Command is the contracting entity.
The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye sweeps ahead of strikes, manages the mission and keeps net-centric carrier battle groups out of harm’s way.
It offers expanded battle space awareness, particularly in the area of information operations, delivering battle management, theater air and missile defense and multiple sensor fusion capabilities in an airborne system.
