Northrop Grumman has received a $64.8M delivery order to provide sensor spares for the service branch’s MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft systems.
The company will provide low-rate initial production 3 spares to support organizational-level maintenance of the Multi-Function Active Sensors, the Defense Department said Friday.
The order covers the delivery of six antenna group assemblies, six wideband receivers and exciters, 10 radar signal processors, two antenna drive electronics and two RSP external power supplies.
MFAS is an electronically scanned array radar designed to switch between surveillance modes, detect small targets and offer a 360-degree coverage area of open oceans and littoral regions.
Northrop will receive the full amount at the time of award and deliver the spares through June 2022.
