Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $750 million US DoD contract to perform upgrades, modernization and integration for the US Army’s Special Electronic Mission Aircraft (SEMA) fleet.

This fixed- wing airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) fleet includes the RC-12X Guardrail, the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance System and Airborne Reconnaissance Low variants.

The award is a base year contract with eight option years, extending to 2027. The work will require high-level aircraft services in support of 75 aircraft. The Northrop Grumman team brings more than 50 years of Army-focused and SEMA-specific airborne ISR development and maintenance expertise.

“We understand SEMA aircraft and the important and unique role it plays in the collection of actionable intelligence around the world,” said John Parker, vice president, global logistics and modernization, Northrop Grumman Technology Services.

Northrop Grumman’s responsibilities will include program management, systems engineering and modification, supply chain management, and aircraft modifications and elective upgrades. Northrop Grumman is joined by King Aerospace, Inc. and M1 Support Service, both providing years of SEMA-specific maintenance personnel and expertise.
