Raytheon's intelligence, information and services business has received a $65M subcontract from Northrop Grumman to help sustain and secure the ground control segment of U.S. Air Force remotely piloted aircraft.

Work also includes updating sensors and software on RQ-4 Global Hawks for the military service to defend the aircraft from cyber threats, Raytheon said Wednesday.

Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon's intelligence, information and services business, said the company has supported Global Hawk systems over the past two decades through modernization of ground and sensor technologies and will help ensure cybersecurity of the fleet.

Northrop awarded the Waltham, Mass.-based defense contractor a $104M subcontract in August 2016 to modernize the unmanned aircraft's ground control stations.
