Northrop Grumman Engaged by U.S. Army at a Maximum of $982 Million for Cyber Electromagnetic Technologies 

The U.S. Army has selected Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) as one of multiple companies competing for task orders issued under R4, an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a ceiling of $982 million. 

The contract will enable the Army to procure an entire range of cyber electromagnetic activities (CEMA) aimed at advancing the force’s lethality in non-kinetic engagements across warfare domains. 

To expand the Army’s non-kinetic arsenal, the contract will support cyber and electronic warfare research and technology development, studies and analyses, integration support, laboratory demonstrations, integrated systems development, testing, performance verification, fabrication, logistics, technical support services and cyber security.

The company will perform work on R4 task orders primarily from its Cincinnati, Ohio location. 

Executive Comment

Ginger Wierzbanowski, VP, cyber and intelligence mission solutions, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, said the company was selected by the U.S. Army to deliver world class cyber and electronic warfare capabilities to the nation’s warfighters. The work on R4 will help ensure U.S. Army forces can rapidly identify, develop and leverage the full range of CEMA effects necessary to deter, deny and prevail on the battlefield. The need to improve our warfighters’ ability to compete on an integrated battlefield, especially prior to traditional armed conflict, cannot be overstated.
