BETHPAGE, N.Y., Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Three additional mission modules for the U.S. Navy's littoral combat ships are being produced by Northrop Grumman under a $25.2 million contract.

Two of the modules are for surface warfare missions and one is for mine counter-measures. Each module package is comprised of a specific set of sub-systems such as data processing equipment, sensors, and others. Each mission package involves the integration of manned and unmanned systems

"Northrop Grumman continues to demonstrate that, as the mission package integrator, we are delivering high-quality, fully integrated mission modules," said Doug Shaffer, director of information operations and electronic attack, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "With this procurement, we will work with our customer to capture synergies across the mission module production base, enhance production and supplier base stability, and reduce cost to the Navy."

Northrop Grumman has so far delivered two surface-warfare mission modules and one mine counter-measures mission module to the Navy for littoral combat ships. Two other mine counter-measures modules and a surface warfare module are currently in production.
