Northrop Grumman Wins FAA ATC Contract
Northrop Grumman has won a seven-year contract from the FAA for technology upgrades in the National Airspace System (NAS). Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems division will serve as prime contractor for the Technical Assistance Contract supporting the FAA's Office of Air Traffic Systems Development (AUA). Specifically, Northrop Grumman will provide program management and technical assistance to five integrated product teams that include traffic flow management, en route, next-generation communications, Free Flight and weather. The company has been the FAA's prime contractor in this modernization effort for the past 12 years. "The continuity we bring to this project means the FAA won't miss a beat in assuring the public that it's operating within the safest and most efficient airspace possible," said Dave Zolet, Mission Systems vice president for Northrop Grumman's Civil Systems Division. Northrop Grumman will lead a Washington, D.C.-based team of approximately 300 employees on the project.
