Northrop Grumman receives a contract to build 24 E-2D Hawkeye for US Navy
- April 11, 2019
Northrop Grumman has received a $3.2 billion contract for 24 E-2D Hawkeye aircraft for US Navy.
The contract is in support of full rate production for fiscal years 2019-2023.
The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is a game changer in how the Navy will conduct battle management command and control. By serving as the “digital quarterback” to sweep ahead of strike, manage the mission, and keep our net-centric carrier battle groups out of harms way, the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the key to advancing the mission, no matter what it may be. The E-2D gives the warfighter expanded battlespace awareness, especially in the area of information operations delivering battle management, theater air and missile defense, and multiple sensor fusion capabilities in an airborne system.
