Northrop Grumman St Augustine assigned contract share

SPECIAL OFFER FOR HISTORIC CITY NEWS READERS

The US Defense Department told Historic City News reporters that the Naval Air Systems Command has awarded a $781.5 million modification to a previously awarded defense contract to Northrop Grumman — the company says nearly 20% of the work will be completed in St Augustine.

For the 965 current employees, and anticipated new hires, who work within the 1.1 million-square-foot facility leased from the Northeast Florida Regional Airport at St Augustine, this comes as great news.

Northrop Grumman won the additional contract for the manufacture and delivery of five E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft.

The Hawkeye is a twin-turboprop, aircraft carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning aircraft.

According to the company, the work should be completed by May 2015.
