The Defense Department has selected Northrop Grumman Corporation to compete to provide Contracted Maintenance, Modification, Aircrew and Related Services (CMMARS) to the U.S. Navy.
U.S. weapons maker Northrop Grumman Corp reported on Tuesday that the company was selected by Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the Naval Aviation Enterprise, as part of a $12.6 billion indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract.
This IDIQ contract will focus on improving readiness, increasing mission availability and providing the most relevant capabilities to today’s warfighters.

“CMMARS helps us solidify our partnership with the Navy as a trusted provider of aircraft capabilities, support, sustainment and modernization to ensure they have the tools needed to conduct combat operations around the globe,” said John Parker, vice president and general manager, global logistics and modernization, Northrop Grumman.
“We look forward to expanding our support of the Naval Aviation Enterprise. For decades, the Navy has flown Northrop Grumman aircraft or aircraft in which we have been a major partner in, and we want to continue to provide the capabilities and support needed for decades to come.”
