Northrop Grumman secures $186M Air Force contract
Contract extends engineering services for branch's A-10 jet fighter fleet
Falls Church-based Fortune 500 aerospace and defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp. has received a 10-year, $185.7 million contract to extend engineering services for the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt jet fighter fleet.
Built by Fairchild Republic Co. prior to its acquisition by Northrop, the A-10 aircraft is designed to help the Air Force perform airborne forward air control and close air support operations.
The contract was awarded to Northrop by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center via a sole-source procurement basis and obligated $6.5M from fiscal year 2021 operations and maintenance funds. Services under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract are intended to support the military branch’s A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program Legacy VII effort, according to the Department of Defense.
Contract work is slated to wrap up by Nov. 22, 2030, and will occur in Clearfield, Utah.
