Northrop Grumann producing more LCS mission modules

from Three additional mission modules for the U.S. Navy’s littoral combat
ships are being produced by Northrop Grumman under a $25.2 million

Two of the modules are for surface warfare missions and one is for
mine counter-measures. Each module package is comprised of a specific
set of sub-systems such as data processing equipment, sensors, and
others. Each mission package involves the integration of manned and
unmanned systems.

“Northrop Grumman continues to demonstrate that, as the mission
package integrator, we are delivering high-quality, fully integrated
mission modules,” said Doug Shaffer, director of information operations
and electronic attack, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. “With this
procurement, we will work with our customer to capture synergies across
the mission module production base, enhance production and supplier base
stability, and reduce cost to the Navy.”

Northrop Grumman has so far delivered two surface-warfare mission
modules and one mine counter-measures mission module to the Navy for
littoral combat ships. Two other mine counter-measures modules and a
surface warfare module are currently in production.
