Northrop Grumman has received a $7.1 million U.S. Air Force contract modification for reimbursements concerning satellite sensor sustainment services.
The increase stems from an exercised option tasking the company to sustain sensors of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program on-orbit constellation and raises the contract’s value to $14.1 million, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
USAF obligates entire the modification amount that was taken from funds allotted for fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance.
The company will perform work in Azusa, Calif. through May 31, 2019.
The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program was established to gather weather data in support of U.S. military missions.
