Northrop Grumman to Enhance UH-60V Aircraft Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected to provide engineering services for the KBR-led $156.7 million, five-year Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle.

IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository and the research and development (R&D) and science and technology (S&T) community.

“We are exploring a wide range of capabilities that will keep the UH-60V relevant in the multi-domain operations environment of the future,” said Lindsay McEwen, vice president, navigation, targeting and survivability, Northrop Grumman. “Our modular, open architecture approach makes it possible to rapidly integrate enhanced capabilities.”

The UH-60V is a comprehensive digital cockpit redesign that replaces the UH-60L’s legacy analog instrumentation with a fully open and integrated avionics suite. The architecture flying in UH-60V is applicable to both Current Fleet and Future Vertical Lift aircraft, and is extensible to Apache, Black Hawk and Chinook aircraft.

The DoD IAC, sponsored by the DTIC, provides technical data management and research support for DoD and federal government users. Established in 1946, the IAC program serves the DoD S&T and acquisition communities to drive innovation and technological developments by enhancing collaboration through integrated scientific and technical information development and dissemination for the DoD and broader S&T community.

Northrop Grumman is a technology company, focused on global security and human discovery. Our pioneering solutions equip our customers with capabilities they need to connect, advance and protect the U.S. and its allies. Driven by a shared purpose to solve our customers’ toughest problems, our 90,000 employees define possible every day.
