Northrop Grumman Defense Mission Systems Inc. in Reston, VA received a $9.4 million modification to previously awarded contract N00178-04-C-2006, exercising an option for continuing engineering support for the development, installation, integration, maintenance and testing of Combat System Simulation and Stimulation Equipment for the AEGIS Program. This modification combines efforts for the U.S. Navy (92%) and the Governments of Japan (4%); Spain (2%); Korea (1.5%) and Norway (.5%). As DID has noted in the past, AEGIS is both a naval radar system and a battle management software combat system. As such, simulations are a key aspect of effective training.
Work on this contract will be performed in Dahlgren, VA (60%); Mount Laurel, NJ (20%); Arlington, VA (10%); San Diego, CA (5%); and New Church, VA (5%), and is expected to be complete by September 2006. The Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, VA issued the contract modification.
