Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Navigation Systems Division (NSD) has been awarded a US Navy support contract, potentially worth more than $49 M over four years, to provide for repair and retrofit of naval avionic systems and subsystems for the Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP).

The new contract includes repair and retrofit of the H-60F Seahawk's antisubmarine warfare, datalink and Doppler system; H-3 Sea King's tactical/navigational system; F-14 Tomcat's converter interface unit and computer signal data converter-replacement; EA-6B Prowler's digital display group; E-2C Hawkeye's antenna receiver, transmitter and control display unit; and the S-3B Viking's communication control group and related support equipment.

As part of the contract agreement, Northrop Grumman will offer reduced turnaround time for select repairs as needed to meet changing fleet requirements.

The company will also provide regular feedback to the customer, including recommendations to increase fleet readiness through reliability enhancements and technical insertions.
