Northrop Grumman Wins Brazilian Navy Deal

Thursday, September 29, 2005
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) won a contract from the Brazilian Navy to upgrade the primary navigation systems on its combat ships with new-generation state-of-the-art inertial navigation systems. The inertial-navigation-system equipment will be supplied by Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit. The system, based on Sperry Marine’s ring-laser gyro technology, is designed to provide high-accuracy position data and precise attitude, velocity and heading inputs for the ship’s navigation and fire-control systems. The initial $2.1 million firm fixed price contract is the first phase of a multi-annual acquisition program to replace the installed Sperry Marine MK29 military gyrocompass systems. For Phase I, Sperry Marine will supply eight MK39 ring-laser gyro inertial navigation systems with supporting interfaces, accessories and spares. Installations are expected to begin in 2006.
