northrop-Grumman_BLUEThe U.S. Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman a $21.6 million contract to provide two additional modular mission packages for the military branch’s Littoral Combat Ship.

Northrop said Monday the modules will be built to support LCS’ surface warfare and mine countermeasure operations.

“As the mission package integrator for LCS we are committed to meeting the demanding requirements of our warfighters, while providing supplier base stability and reducing cost to the Navy,” said Doug Shaffer, director of electronic attack and maritime systems integration programs at Northrop.

The Navy has received six LCS mission modules from the company to date.

Northrop is scheduled to deliver one countermeasures module and two surface warfare modules this year under a previously awarded contract.
