Northrop Grumman awarded A-10 Thunderbolt II task 0rders

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Northrop Grumman two task orders under the A-10 Thunderbolt II Life-cycle Program Support indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.

Under the terms of the $4.4 million aircraft structural integrity program Legacy IV task order, Northrop Grumman will manage several tasks to include testing and validation of current A-10 flight spectrum data. This information can be used to determine A-10 service life and inspection cycles.

Northrop Grumman will also perform work under the $4.3 million ASIP Modernization IV task order, which will involve developing computer-aided design solid models of the legacy A-10 thick skin wings. The company also completed work on prior ASIP Modernization II and III task orders.

“Through the ASIP program, we are able to work closely with our Air Force customer to extend the life of the A-10 beyond its original design,” said Doug Hamel, A-10 TLPS program manager for Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “Our ability to capitalize on original equipment manufacturer knowledge and experience from across the corporation coupled with our demonstrated performance on previous ASIP task orders allow us to provide affordable, innovative solutions for these tasks.”
