Northrop Grumman Corporation will continue its role as Ground Subsystems Support Contractor (GSSC) of the U.S. Air Force’s Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).
The five-year base contract is worth $306 million and has a potential ceiling of $3.86 billion over 18 years.
As prime contractor on GSSC since 2015, Northrop Grumman will continue to provide engineering and field services to sustain Minuteman III through the end of its service life later next decade.
“Northrop Grumman brings proven performance, a highly skilled team of experts, and a continued commitment to ensuring Minuteman III weapon system operational readiness for the U.S. Air Force,” said Greg Manuel, sector vice president and general manager, strategic deterrent systems division, Northrop Grumman.
“Our team is using the latest in digital engineering and innovation to keep today’s system reliable, safe and secure while positioning the Air Force for a smooth transition to the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) system over the next couple decades.”
Work will be managed in Roy, Utah and executed at many different Northrop Grumman locations.
