Friday, December 12, 2008

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has been awarded a delivery order for the fifth year of a five-year contract to provide technical, logistics and material support for navigation systems installed on U.S. Navy ships and submarines.

The delivery order, valued at $15.5m, was awarded to Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit by Naval Inventory Control Point, Mechanicsburg, Pa., under a firm fixed-price performance-based logistics (PBL) contract.

Under the contract, Sperry Marine will supply material management, configuration management and program management services for the AN/WSN-7 inertial navigation systems, and the AN/BPS-15 and AN/BPS-16 submarine radar systems. The current award also includes funding for initial support of installed steering systems on guided-missile destroyers and scalable integrated bridge systems on destroyers and cruisers.

“Over the past four years of this PBL contract, Sperry Marine has established an outstanding record of performance in support of these mission-critical products in the fleet,” said Jeff Holloway, director for Sperry Marine’s U.S. defense business development, marketing and sales. “We have consistently achieved 100 percent on-time delivery to surface and submarine forces under this contract.”
