U.S. Army awards Northrop Grumman with $982M for support cyber electromagnetic activities

U.S. weapons maker Northrop Grumman Corp reported that U.S. Army has selected it 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.

Northrop Grumman will support a full-spectrum of the U.S. Army’s cyber and electronic warfare initiatives through the R4 IDIQ, according to aerospace giant.

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.

“Northrop Grumman is proud to be selected by the U.S. Army to deliver world class cyber and electronic warfare capabilities to the nation’s warfighters,” said Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president, cyber and intelligence mission solutions, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. “Our work on R4 will help ensure our Army forces can rapidly identify, develop and leverage the full range of CEMA effects necessary to deter, deny and prevail on the battlefield.”

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 need to improve our warfighters’ ability to compete on an integrated battlefield, especially prior to traditional armed conflict, cannot be overstated,” said Wierzbanowski.  “We look forward to collaborating with the Army on this important strategic effort.”

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