World-Traveling Autonomous UAV Receives 'Real Money'
Northrop Grumman Corporation's Integrated Systems
sector has been awarded a $302.9 million fixed-price-incentive-fee
contract modification by the U.S. Air Force's Aeronautical Systems
Center to provide for the second low-rate initial production lot of
the Global Hawk unmanned reconnaissance system.
The contract includes delivery of four RQ-4A Global Hawk air
vehicles, three integrated sensor suites, two electro-optical
infrared sensors and one launch and recovery element for the Air
Force as well as two air vehicles, two integrated sensor suites,
two launch and recovery elements and one mission control element
for a planned 2005 maritime demonstration by the U.S. Navy.
Work under this contract will be performed by the
company's Unmanned Systems unit in San Diego and completed in
2005. Additional funding for the Navy's Global Hawk maritime
demonstration will be provided under separate contracts and
executed by the Unmanned Systems unit and the sector's Airborne
Early Warfare and Electronic Warfare unit in Bethpage (NY).
Since the program began in 1995, Northrop Grumman has received
more than $1.6 billion in contracts for Global Hawk design,
development, testing and production. The first production vehicles
will be delivered this year.
