Northrop Grumman received back-to-back contracts from the Pentagon this week valued at $141.8 million in total.
The largest contract worth $98.0 million is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-incentive-fee award. The contract calls for Northrop to carry out maintenance service of the Global Adaptive Planning Collaborative Information Environment (GAP CIE) software system for the U.S. Air Force.
The contract includes the supply of software deliveries for sustainment, enhancement and modification to fielded GAP CIE capabilities. The company will also continue to integrate tools to support the production of assigned campaign/contingency plans and orders, Unified Command Plan taskings, and Guidance for the Employment of the Force-assigned tasks. Work on this contract is expected to be completed on April 30, 2019.
The second contract is a $43.8 million worth modification contract for the production and delivery of 5 MQ-8 Firescout vertical take-off and landing tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (VTUAV). The contact also includes one ground control station in support of the VTUAV endurance upgrade rapid deployment capability effort. This contract is slated for completion by the end of 2015.
