Northrop Grumman has received a potential $82.3M contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop software for a control and planning segment designed to facilitate military satellite communications in the North Polar region.

CAPS software is intended to help the service branch manage four Enhanced Polar System Recapitalization payloads, orbit planning, cyber architecture and out-of-band link functions, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

The company will perform work in Redondo Beach, Calif., through Sept. 30, 2023.

USAF will obligate $14.7M at the time of award from its fiscal 2019 research and development funds.

The service branch awarded Northrop a $429M contract last year to build two extremely high-frequency eXtended data rate payloads for the EPS-R program.
