Northrop Grumman Corp. has won a five-year, $208 million contract from the Navy to provide operations, maintenance and engineering support for the Navy and Marine Corps East Coast and West Coast training ranges, the company has announced.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman Information Technology of McLean, Va., will provide a staff of engineers and technicians for operations, maintenance and engineering support of the tactical air crew combat training system and the global positioning system-based large-area tracking range.
The staff will support electronic warfare, surface range scoring and monitoring systems, range maintenance and unexploded ordinance disposal. It also will provide support for telemetry, communications and range-support services used in training Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force personnel.
As for original equipment manufacturers, the company's Electronic Systems Division will provide engineering support.
Northrop Grumman's partners on the project include Chugach Development Corp., Arcata Associates Inc., Westech International Inc., Expeditionary Technical Solutions Inc. and Digital Perceptions Inc.
The contract combines the two training programs, which previously were procured separately.
