Northrop Grumman Systems Corp. has received a $10 million U.S. Navy contract modification for the production of one MQ-8C Fire Scout drone.
The deal modifies a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-firm target contract.
Work will be performed in California, Alabama, Texas, Mississippi and other U.S. locations.
The expected completion date is August 2019.
The Fire Scout provides reconnaissance, situational awareness and precision targeting support for ground, air and sea forces. It can operate from guided missile frigates and littoral combat ships.
The MQ-8C variant has a range of 150 nautical miles and a payload capacity of more than 700 pounds.
