NGC Receives $210 M to Sustain Joint STARS Fleet

The U.S. Air Force awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) a $210 million contract to continue sustaining its E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) fleet. The contract is a continuation of Northrop Grumman's Joint STARS sustainment contract, which was first awarded in 2000.

Northrop Grumman is responsible for the logistics, engineering, training, mission support, supply chain and depot maintenance support of the Joint STARS fleet at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, and forward operating locations throughout the world. Northrop Grumman has partnered with the Air Force on Joint STARS for nearly 30 years.

"Since 2000, our team has ensured that Joint STARS remains ready to support the high level of demand from combatant commanders," said Bryan Lima, director, Manned C2ISR programs, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "As the Air Force looks toward the future of Joint STARS, Northrop Grumman has the knowledge, experience and infrastructure to provide the greatest value in meeting the Air Force's battle management, command and control requirements now, and in the future."

In addition to Robins Air Force Base, sustainment work is provided by personnel at the Northrop Grumman Manned Aircraft Design Center of Excellence in Melbourne, the Lake Charles Maintenance and Modification Center, Louisiana, and more than 30 major suppliers across the United States.
