Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $24 million contract to provide engineering services support for the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt program.
One task order under the aircraft structural integrity program Modernization V includes updates to the ground attack aircraft’s weapons system as part of efforts to maintain its viability over the next decade and beyond, the company said Tuesday.
Another task order under ASIP Legacy V involves running diagnostics on the A-10 mainframe, including damage tolerance, stress, thermal and risk analysis and testing.
The two task orders fall under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity A-10 Thunderbolt Life Cycle Program Support vehicle and will run concurrently for two years and four years, respectively.
Northrop will work with the ASIP team that comprises of the Southwest Research Institute, the University of Dayton Research Institute, Borsight and Prime Machine.
