Northrup Grumman has won $83 million contract to provide logistics support for the Hunter Unmanned Aircraft System. 

Work will be performed in Arizona and in Afghanistan with an estimated completion date of Oct. 30, 2016, US Department of Defense stated Tuesday.

The Hunter is a heavy tactical UAV system for surveillance, reconnaissance, target acquisition, artillery adjustment and damage assessment.

Flying over the battlefield, it gathers ISR data in real time, and transmits it via wideband Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) to commanders and soldiers on the ground who are able to communicate in real-time via Hunter’s Communications Relay Payload. Hunter’s multi-payload capability provides enhanced situational awareness and the ability to proactively plan and execute decisive combat operations.
