Northrop Grumman wins Navy performance-based logistics contract for Carrier Aircraft Inertial Navigation System

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Northrop Grumman has been awarded a follow-on performance-based logistics contract to provide logistics, material and technical support for the AN/ASN-139 Carrier Aircraft Inertial Navigation System (CAINS II) installed on various U.S. Navy and foreign aircraft.

The U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command granted the five-year, firm-fixed-price contract, which has a total value of $13.2 million, to Northrop Grumman. Under the contract, Northrop Grumman is supplying material- and configuration-management services for the AN/ASN-139 CAINS II, which is used on the C-2A, E-2C, F/A-18, S-3 and AV-8B aircraft.

“Our excellent performance during the previous five-year, performance-based logistics contract for the AN/ASN-139 helped us to secure this latest award,” said Gorik Hossepian, vice president of Northrop Grumman’s Navigation and Positioning Systems business unit. “Our wide scope of support, including total inventory control for CAINS II, will help ensure that the product continues to meet the availability requirements and high quality standards of the Navy.”

The AN/ASN-139, which is also known as the LN-92, is a ring laser gyro strapdown inertial navigation system that provides better than one nautical mile per hour navigation performance. It was designed for carrier-based aircraft to offer low life-cycle and acquisition costs, low maintenance and calibration needs, and high reliability.
