Northrop

Northrop Grumman has received a $99 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy for additional low-rate initial production of a lot 5 MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system.

The action expands the scope of the previously awarded, fixed-priced incentive contract and the military service will obligate the full value of the modification from fiscal years 2019 through 2021 funds, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Northrop will carry out work in California, Texas, Maryland, Indiana, Utah, Mississippi, North Dakota, West Virginia and various areas within the continental U.S.

DOD expects all tasks to conclude by January 2025.

Triton is based on the Global Hawk drone and uses various maritime sensors to deliver persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
