Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected for a multi-phase, five-year contract valued at more than $230 million to update Jordan’s national command, control, communications, computer and intelligence (C4I) networks with systems based in part on the U.S. military’s Global Command and Control System, and designed from the outset to be interoperable with allied forces. See full release. In a separate deal, the Jordanians also picked up 3 used Dutch F-16B aircraft. The two-seat fighters will be used as trainers.
