BAE-Northrop-DECA Team Obtains UK Defense Ministry Acquisition Award

A partnership of BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman and U.K.’s defense electronics and components agency has received recognition from the British defense ministry for their collaborative efforts under the F-35 Lightning II program.

MoD honored the bid team called Team UK during the Minister for Defense Procurement Acquisition Awards ceremony that took place Nov. 28 at the ministry’s headquarters, Northrop said Thursday.

The group also obtained a Special Award, which serves as the top honor of the annual awards event.

The Pentagon’s F-35 Joint Program Office designated U.K. as the global provider of maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade services for F-35 depot-level repairable components through the effort of Team UK, now named Sealand Support Services Limited.

Northrop’s Australia-based subsidiary was also selected in 2016 to oversee maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade efforts under the multinational F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.
