NASA Awards Contract for Global Hawk Skyrange Program


NASA has selected Northrup Grumman Systems Corp. (NGSC) of San Diego to provide demonstration engineering, manufacturing, and technical support for the Global Hawk Skyrange program at the agency’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California.

The firm-fixed price contract runs through Dec. 14, 2025, with a total value of $70 million with no options.

The Skyrange program will obtain engineering, technical and fight operations, and maintenance support from NGSC for the program at Armstrong. Skyrange goals are to equip high-altitude, long-endurance aircraft with sensors to demonstrate an alternative data collection support system for remote long-range flight test activities.

NGSC and Armstrong will integrate sensors on the Global Hawk aircraft and perform ground and flight activities to develop integrated systems and perform demonstration flights against flight assets.

As the air vehicle original equipment manufacturer and ground system integrator, NGSC has unique knowledge of the Global Hawk derivative aircraft and associated ground systems. Armstrong will also rely on NGSC’s unique facilities, tooling, and drawings used in the aircraft design and manufacture to perform modification or repair of the aircraft.

The work will be performed at Armstrong and Edwards Air Force Base facilities, as well as various NGSC facilities.
