Northrop Grumman has secured a one-year, $86.2M contract modification to engineer, sustain and test mission control and operator training systems for an unmanned aerial vehicle fielded by the U.S. Navy.

Scope of work will also cover the provision of technical support efforts to validate if the MQ-4C Triton UAV’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capacities can support early operational capability status, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

The Navy will obligate $200K from fiscal year 2020 research, development, test and evaluation funds; $5.8M from fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance funds; and $55.5M from fiscal 2020 aircraft procurement funds at the time of award, with $5.8M set to expire at the end of the current FY.

Work is slated to conclude by March 2021 and will take place in California, Florida, Maryland and Guam.
