Navy inks $22.5 million deal for software support

The Navy has hired Northrop Grumman Corp. to continue providing software lifecycle maintenance for several of its major software systems.

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

The support is for the Common Data Link Management System, command and control processor, and rehosted command and control processor software systems, according to a company release. The work also includes implementing tactical digital information links.

'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.
