The Department of Defense awarded a $36.5 million contract to Northrop Grumman to provide training for U.S. Army soldiers in the operating of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) at Fort Huachuca in Arizona.
The soldiers will be trained to operate UAS produced by Hunter.
U.S. Rep. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.) welcomed the announcement of the new UAS training contract for Northrop Grumman.
“Fort Huachuca has an excellent record of training soldiers who operate unmanned aircraft and I applaud the U.S. Army’s continued support of that effort,” said Barber.
