Northrop Grumman To Wind Down E-10A WSI Technology Program On Decision Of U.S. Air Force To End Program
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) received notice February 23, 2007 from the U.S. Air Force of a decision to end the E-10A Multi-Sensor Command and Control Aircraft Weapon System Integration (WSI) program.
The E-10A WSI Technology Development Program has not been funded for fiscal 2008 and planning has begun for ending efforts following the initial design review being held this week. Subsequent closeout of any critical action items is scheduled to be completed by the end of May 2007.
The E-10A program was designed to integrate Northrop Grummanís Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP) Wide-Area Surveillance (WAS) sensor and Northrop Grummanís Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2) mission suite into an airborne system that provides a combination of cruise missile defense, ground moving target tracking, and dissemination of time-critical data.
ďOver the next 30 days, we will be exploring options for the future of the MP-RTIP WAS sensor and BMC2 subsystem,Ē said Dave Nagy, vice president of Northrop Grummanís Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance Programs. ďThe taxpayers have made a significant investment in this critical technology.Ē
Boeing and Raytheon are Northrop Grummanís partners on the E-10A WSI contract. The E-10A program is managed by Air Force Material Commandís Electronic Systems Center at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass.
