The National Defense Industrial Association selected the F-35 communications, navigation and identification (CNI) team from Northrop Grumman for the 2013 Ferguson Systems Engineering Excellence Group Award. The award is given for outstanding achievement in the practical application of systems engineering principles. Northrop Grumman's integrated CNI system provides F-35 pilots with the capability of more than 27 avionics functions.
