Northrop Grumman will perform engineering and technical services for U.S. Navy airborne warning radars, the Defense Department announced Thursday.
The technical services division will perform maintenance, instrumentation and engineering work on C-2, E-2 and E-2D Advanced Hawkeye planes.
Northrop will also deliver Airborne Early Warning radar equipment platforms, conduct supportability and safety studies on E-2 and C-2 aircraft and weapons systems.
Work will occur in Patuxent River, Md. through July 2013 and the Naval Air Warfare Center’s aircraft division in Patuxent River, Md. is the contracting activity.
The company also developed an active electronically scanned array radar for the Lockheed Martin-made F-35 fighter jet and recently tested it for ballistic missile detection, tracking and targeting.
Agencies participating in the test included NASA and the Air Force.
