Northrop Grumman has won a $113.7 million contract to acquire long lead items and provide support services for a U.S. Navy full-rate aircraft production program.
The advanced acquisition contract covers assembly of five E-2D Advanced Hawkeye planes as the Navy intends to acquire 75 total aircraft, Northrop said Thursday.
To date, Northrop has delivered 10 E-2D planes to the Navy and is building another 10 at a facility in Florida.
Those planes are in different stages of manufacturing and predelivery flight testing at a Northrop aircraft integration center of excellence in St. Augustine, Fla.
The Navy has set the E-2D program of record at 75 aircraft total, the company says.
