Navy renews contract for software help

The Navy has hired Northrop Grumman Corp. to continue providing software lifecycle maintenance for several command and control applications.

Under a five-year contract, potentially worth $22.5 million, Northrop Grumman's IT group will supply engineering support to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego.

'The systems we support enable network-centric warfare, which helps provide critical real-time situational awareness to support Navy commanders during operations,' said Barry Rhine, president of defense mission systems for Northrop Grumman IT.
