Northrop Grumman Systems is being awarded a contract modification to support the full rate production (FRP) Lot 6 E-2D Advanced Hawkeye program.
The modification to a previously awarded fixed-price incentive contract is to exercise an option for non-recurring engineering, product support, engineering investigations, engine and software support activity efforts for the FRP Lot 6.
The contract modification, worth around $50 million, was awarded by the U.S. Department of Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) located in Patuxent River, Maryland. Fiscal 2018 aircraft procurement (Navy) funds for the amount will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
Work will be performed in Melbourne, Florida (68 percent); Syracuse, New York (18 percent); St. Augustine, Florida (4 percent); Norfolk, Virginia (4 percent); Indianapolis, Indiana (2 percent); Greenlawn, New York (1 percent); Woodland Hills, California (1 percent); Falls Church, Virginia (1 percent); and various locations within the continental U.S. (1 percent), and is expected to be completed in March 2019.
