Under the first -- a Legacy IV task order for the aircraft structural integrity program -- Northrop will manage several tasks, including the testing and validation of current A-10 flight spectrum data for determining service life and inspection cycles. The value of the task order is $4.4 million.
Under the second ASIP Modernization IV task order, worth $4.3 million, the company will develop computer-aided design of solid models of the legacy A-10 thick skin wings.
"Through the ASIP program, we are able to work closely with our Air Force customer to extend the life of the A-10 beyond its original design," said Doug Hamel, A-10 TLPS program manager for Northrop Grumman Technical Services.
"Our ability to capitalize on original equipment manufacturer knowledge and experience from across the corporation, coupled with our demonstrated performance on previous ASIP task orders, allow us to provide affordable, innovative solutions for these tasks."
