U.S. Navy Selects Northrop Grumman for CAINS II
The U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command selected Northrop Grumman for a $13.2 million contract to provide logistics and support for the AN/ASN-139 Carrier Aircraft Inertial Navigation System (CAINS II).
The AN/ASN-139 CAINS II is a ring laser gyro inertial navigation system designed for carrier-based aircraft to provide better than one nautical mile per hour navigation performance, Northrop Grumman said. The system is used on C-2A, E-2C and F/A-18 aircraft.
“Our wide scope of support, including total inventory control for CAINS II, will help ensure that the product continues to meet the availability requirements and high quality standards of the Navy,” said Gorik Hossepian, vice president of navigation and positioning systems at Northrop Grumman.
