Northrop Grumman has won two task orders worth $24 million under the A-10 Thunderbolt Life Cycle Program Support (TLPS) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract vehicle.

"Northrop Grumman is proud to continue to supporting the US Air Force's premier ground attack aircraft," said John Parker, director, Northrop Grumman's global logistics and modernization business unit. "Our focus is to always provide our customer with the highest level of engineering services possible to ensure superior program performance. We look forward to continuing our work with the Air Force and the A-10 Thunderbolt."

Under the terms of the four-year aircraft structural integrity program (ASIP) Modernization V task order, Northrop Grumman and its teammates will support the A-10 ASIP modernization program on tasks required to keep the A-10 weapon system viable through 2028 and beyond. 

Northrop Grumman will rely on its A-10 original equipment manufacturer experience for the two-year ASIP Legacy V task order, which will include tasks related to the original development and manufacture of the A-10. These tasks include damage tolerance analysis, materials testing, probabilistic and risk analysis, and stress and thermal analysis.

"Winning these task orders demonstrates our customer's confidence in our ability to manage the extremely important engineering and logistics tasks required to keep the aircraft structure flight-ready throughout its lifecycle," said David Gustafson, site and program manager, Northrop Grumman Clearfield aircraft engineering services center.
