E-10A Contract

Northrop Grumman received a $256 million contract for the E-10A Multi-Sensor Command and Control aircraft, the company said Monday. The contract covers design and analysis of the E-10A Technology Development Program (TDP) through Initial Design Review, which is scheduled for May. The E-10A integrates Northrop Grumman's Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program Wide-Area Surveillance sensor and its Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2) mission suite into an airborne system that provides a combination of cruise missile defense, ground moving target tracking and dissemination of time-critical data. Also, on Monday, Northrop Grumman said it won an Air Force deal to provide 42 additional Litening Advanced Targeting (AT) systems. The system is a self-contained, multi-sensor laser target-designating and navigation system that enables aircrews to detect, acquire, track and identify ground targets for accurate delivery of both conventional and precision-guided weapons. It is deployed on AV-8B, A-10, B-52, F-15E, F-16 and F/A-18 aircraft. More than 440 pods have been ordered by the Air Force and allied nations, with more than 360 systems fielded, the company said.
