US Army awards Northrop Grumman $122 million Counter-Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) contract

Northrop Grumman Corporation has received a $122 million contract to install and sustain Counter-Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) systems at forward operating bases (FOBs) supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and the ongoing United States Mission in Iraq (USM-I). The contract includes options that, if fully exercised, would raise the potential value of the contract to $311 million. C-RAM is a capability that integrates existing field artillery and air defense sensors, a commercial off-the-shelf warning system and a US Navy-developed interceptor to protect US and coalition personnel from indirect fire threat.
