Northrop Grumman to perform repairs for US Navy's aircraft
Northrop Grumman Corp. has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) to repair avionics equipment on the SH-60 Seahawk helicopter and the EA-6B Prowler jet.
Under a five-year, fixed-price contract valued at nearly $19 million with NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support, Northrop Grumman will repair the ASN-150 and ASN-123 tactical navigation/tactical data systems, including Doppler Radar avionics equipment, on the SH-60 and EA-6B aircraft. Northrop Grumman has been the sole provider of depot-level repair services for the ASN-150 and ASN-123 since the products' inceptions in the 1980s.
"Northrop Grumman is proud of our longstanding support of these products, which maintain key customer capabilities," said Gorik Hossepian, vice president of navigation and positioning systems for the company's Navigation Systems Division.
Northrop Grumman offers customized support solutions for current and legacy military and commercial systems, including their related test equipment, overhaul and repair, field engineering services, inventory and spares management, and technology refresh. Repair activity for the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract will occur at Northrop Grumman's facilities in Woodland Hills, Calif., and Salt Lake City.
Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., manufactures the SH-60 Seahawk helicopter, which can deploy aboard cruisers, destroyers, amphibious assault ships, frigates and other air-capable platforms to conduct antisubmarine warfare, search and rescue, and cargo lift, among other capabilities.
Manufactured by Northrop Grumman, the EA-6B Prowler is a long-range, all-weather aircraft with advanced electronic countermeasures capability, including the interruption of enemy electronic activity and obtaining tactical electronic intelligence within the combat area.
