Northrop Grumman announces contract to upgrade Navy NGC2P ship communications

SAN DIEGO, 8 April 2013. Military communications experts at the Northrop Grumman Corp. Information Systems segment in San Diego will upgrade the software and hardware in the U.S. Navy Next Generation Command and Control Processor (NGC2P) under terms of an $80 million Navy contract announced Friday.

The NGC2P system is a tactical data link communication processor that provides critical real-time information about friendly and enemy activity during combat operations.

Northrop Grumman will provide software and hardware system development, engineering services, and technology refresh field change kits for the communications processors aboard naval surface ships.

Northrop Grumman first will deal with obsolescence issues in the current NGC2P to increase computational capacity. Later company engineers will integrate the system's Link 22 secure digital radio link and make other improvements.

The five-year, indefinite-quantity, indefinite-delivery NGC2P Technology Refresh and Link 22 contract was awarded 9 Jan. by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) in San Diego. An additional two-year option would bring the total value to $95 million. Northrop Grumman was first selected to develop NGC2P in 2008.

The Northrop Grumman NGC2P team includes GET Engineering in El Cajon, Calif.; FUSE Integration Inc. in Long Beach, Calif.; and Technology Unlimited Group in San Diego.
