Northrop Grumman [NOC] said Wednesday the Army has selected the company to compete for individual task orders under a $982 million contract to deliver cyber and electromagnetic (CEMA) capabilities.
The Army contract known as R4, awarded in March, calls for Northrop Grumman and three other undisclosed companies to support cyber and electronic warfare research and technology development, provide integration support and conduct testing.
“Northrop Grumman is proud to be selected by the U.S. Army to deliver world class cyber and electronic warfare capabilities to the nation’s warfighters,” Ginger Wierzbanowski, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems’ vice president for cyber and intelligence mission solutions, said in a statement. “Our work on R4 will help ensure our Army forces can rapidly identify, develop and leverage the full range of CEMA effects necessary to deter, deny and prevail on the battlefield.”
The multi-award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity R4 contract will include task orders to advance the Army’s lethality in non-kinetic engagements.
Northrop Grumman told Defense Daily on Thursday the company has already received a task order to deliver a capabilities white paper.
