The Joint STARS TSSR program is designed to provide program management, engineering technical support, aircrew and maintenance training, supply chain and spares management, technical data and publications, program depot maintenance and overall customer support.

“We remain fully committed to delivering essential services for Joint STARS that Northrop Grumman uniquely provides to our warfighters,” Janice Zilch, Northrop Grumman’s vice president, manned airborne surveillance programs, said.

“The overall modification and sustainment work will ensure continuous safety and system readiness for the E-8C fleet against evolving threat environments.”

Northrop is expected to undertake its sustainment work for the 116th and 461st Air Control Wings of the Air Force’s E-8C Joint STARS fleet from Robins Air Force Base in Georgia and forward operating locations overseas.

Joint STARS are built to deliver real-time battle management situational awareness and wide area search.
