Northrop Grumman has won $110 million contract for the gray wolf science and technology demonstration effort.
The contract provides for the design, development, manufacture, and testing of prototype affordable cruise missiles to advance networked collaborative operations technologies for defeat of enemy integrated air defense systems, the US department of defense said in a statement Wednesday.
Work is expected to be complete by Dec. 17, 2024.
The objective of this effort is to conduct Research and Development to advance and mature affordable tactical cruise missiles employed in networked, collaborative operations in support of defeating enemy Integrated Air Defense System (IADS) in highly contested environments. The program is a spiral development effort, using open architectures and a modular design to enable testing of multiple variant full-scale prototypes.
