Army Gives Northrop Grumman $91 Million Contract To Supply GPS-Aided Laser Rangefinder Systems
The U.S. Army extended a $91 million contract to Northrop Grumman Corp. for more than 300 battle-proven Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder (LLDR) systems, Northrop Grumman announced July 30.
The systems provide targeting capability for laser-guided, GPS-guided and conventional munitions. The Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder can recognize targets, find the range to a target, calculate grid coordinates, and provide the information to other digital battlefield systems.
The delivery order is part of a previously awarded $336 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for lightweight laser designator rangefinder components. Work is expected to be completed by 2009.
