Northrop Grumman gets $17 million LSC mission package award

Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, Bethpage, N.Y., is being awarded a $17,132,243 modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-06-C-6311) to provide engineering and production planning services for mission packages that will deploy from and integrate with the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). The Navy's plan is to use continuous evaluation of system maturity through a disciplined system engineering framework to improve mission capability in identified mission areas. LCS mission packages will be optimized for flexibility in the littorals. Mission package capabilities are currently focused on primary mission areas of mine warfare emphasizing mine countermeasures, littoral anti-submarine warfare, and littoral surface warfare operations including prosecution of small boats. The LCS mission packages are developed and acquired separately from the LCS Sea Frame. Work will be performed in Bethpage, N.Y. (47 percent); Washington, D.C. (26 percent); Panama City, Fla. (12 percent); Hollywood, Md. (12 percent); San Diego, Calif. (2 percent); and Dahlgren, Va. (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by March 2011. Contract funds in the amount of $1,713,224 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Navy Yard, D.C., is the contracting activity.
