Contract: Northrop, $14.3M

Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Annapolis, Md., is awarded a $14,304,010 firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee modification to a previously awarded contract (N00024-15-C-6320) to exercise options for the fabrication, testing, production and delivery of AN/AQS-24C mine hunting sonar systems.

The system is deployed from the MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter. Work will be performed in Annapolis (83 percent); and Panama City, Fla. (17 percent), and is expected to be completed by June 2021. Fiscal 2017 and 2018 other procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $14,304,010 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity. (Source: DoD, 06/29/18)
