Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has been awarded a contract to supply new radar systems for installation on 10 German navy ships.

The contract was awarded to Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division by the German navy procurement authority through the responsible naval departments.

The new 10-ship contract follows the successful completion of a four-year, $4.3 million program, under which the existing radars on 70 German navy ships were replaced by the company’s Sperry Marine BridgeMaster™ E radar sets.

Under the new contract, Northrop Grumman will install its new-generation Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT™ radar systems on 10 additional German navy ships. Two of the vessels will be fitted with the company’s unique dual-channel radar technology, which permits two independent asynchronous radar units to be displayed and controlled on a single console.

The company will also provide training, spares, installation, engineering and project management support.

“Northrop Grumman is the leading supplier of navigation radars for many European navies, including France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Greece, Norway and Poland as well as Germany,” said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Naval Systems International at Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division. “Worldwide, the company has supplied more than 12,000 radars to over 60 international navies and coast guards.”
