Northrop Grumman wins $702 million contract

Northrop Grumman has won a contract worth up to $702 million to provide software and systems engineering support to the US Army’s Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM).

Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected by the US Army to provide software and systems engineering support to the US Army’s Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM).

The five base years of the indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract have a potential value of $702 million to Northrop Grumman’s Information Technology (IT) sector.

In addition to Northrop Grumman, one other team was selected to compete for future awards under the ID/IQ contract. The contract also contains five one-year options that lift the program’s potential value to a total of $1.45 billion over 10 years.

The work will be performed for CECOM’s Software Engineering Centre, which provides software and systems engineering support (SSES) for assigned mission-critical defence systems and associated programs throughout their life cycle.

The SSES program will provide these services for development and maintenance of communications, command and control, intelligence, electronic warfare, sensors, and avionics systems and other organisational IT systems.
