This competitive award has a potential ceiling of US$3.86 billion over 18 years and Greg Manuel, sector vice president and general manager, strategic deterrent systems division at Northrop Grumman, credits the team with the renewed commitment to the US Air Force.

“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 US Air Force,” Manuel said.

“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 throughout many different locations.
