Northrop Grumman has won a contract potentially worth $95 million to help the Navy upgrade key command and control technologies, the Defense Department said Jan. 9.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will enhance the capabilities of the Next Generation Command and Control Processor (NGC2P) and support Link 22 development. Specific tasks include software and hardware development, engineering services and technology refresh kits.
NGC2P is installed on Navy ships to give commanders and sailors real-time data on friendly and enemy activity during combat operations.
The $80 million base contract includes an option period, which if exercised would raise the value of the contract to $95 million. The work will be performed in San Diego, Calif., and is expected to be completed in December 2017.
The Space and Naval Warfare System Command, San Diego, Calif., is serving as the contracting activity on behalf of the Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communication, Computers and Intelligence.
