Northrop Grumman Awarded $96 Million for Missile Defense C2BMC Contract

MCLEAN, Va. — Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­ra­tion (NYSE:NOC) has been award­ed a $96 mil­lion fol­low-on con­tract as one of five major defense con­trac­tors on the Mis­sile Defense Nation­al Team to con­tin­ue devel­op­ment, oper­a­tions and sus­tain­ment work.

The Mis­sile Defense Nation­al Team, led by Lock­heed Mar­tin, is respon­si­ble for the Com­mand, Con­trol, Bat­tle Man­age­ment and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (C2BMC) pro­gram for the Mis­sile Defense Agency. A cru­cial com­po­nent of the U.S. mis­sile defense strat­e­gy, the C2BMC pro­gram con­nects and inte­grates all ele­ments of the nation’s bal­lis­tic mis­sile defense sys­tem.

“Since 2002, Northrop Grum­man has been an inte­gral part of the team that pulls togeth­er the industry’s best minds in an envi­ron­ment that leaves com­pa­ny par­ti­san­ship behind,” said Kel­ley Zelick­son, vice pres­i­dent of air and mis­sile defense sys­tems for Northrop Grum­man Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems. “It’s a suc­cess­ful approach for achiev­ing inno­va­tion and afford­abil­i­ty in opti­miz­ing the most com­plex sys­tem of sys­tems for the pro­tec­tion of our coun­try.”

Under the 38-month con­tract as a team­mate of Lock­heed Mar­tin, Northrop Grum­man will sup­port key inte­grat­ed prod­uct teams and pro­vide engi­neer­ing exper­tise to fur­ther devel­op, inte­grate and test C2BMC, oper­ate and sus­tain exist­ing glob­al­ly field­ed C2BMC assets, and pro­vide test and exer­cise sup­port for those sys­tems.

Northrop Grum­man is a lead­ing glob­al secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny pro­vid­ing inno­v­a­tive sys­tems, prod­ucts and solu­tions in aero­space, elec­tron­ics, infor­ma­tion sys­tems, and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial cus­tomers world­wide.
