Northrop Grumman has received a $73.2M delivery order from the U.S. Air Force to incorporate new capabilities into a remote visual assessment tool in support of the Minuteman III missile's production and deployment.

The company will modify the Remote Visual Assessment II program to enable the procurement, production, removal, installation, testing and documentation of equipment, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

USAF awarded the contract via a sole-source acquisition basis and obligated $1.1M from fiscal year 2020 missile procurement funds.

Contract work is slated to conclude by July 31, 2023, and will occur at various Air Force installations in Wyoming, North Dakota and Montana.

Minuteman III is a land-based intercontinental ballistic missile developed by Boeing to carry single or multiple nuclear warheads and serve a part in the U.S. nuclear deterrence triad.
