Northrop Grumman joins USCYBERCOM Unified Platform programme

Northrop Grumman will serve as systems coordinator for the USCYBERCOM Unified Platform programme, as part of a $54 million US Air Force-awarded contract.

The Unified Platform will support all defensive and offensive cyber operations, in addition to cyber intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance on behalf of the US Cyber Command’s Cyber Mission Force.

“Northrop Grumman is proud to partner with the US Air Force and US Cyber Command to deliver this critical mission capability in support of our nation’s Cyber Mission Force,” commented Linnie Haynesworth, Northrop Grumman’s Sector Vice President and General Manager of Cyber and Intelligence Mission Solutions. “We look forward to delivering the integrated, shared capabilities that will give our cyber warfighters the edge in cyberspace and across all domains.”

As systems coordinator, Northrop Grumman will integrate disparate cyberspace platforms. This will enable cyber operations to be synchronized and give the US military rapid access to the entire spectrum of cyber capabilities.

“Northrop Grumman is recognized for collaborative, innovative leadership in delivering transformative cyber solutions through a full range of challenged environments,” said Bobby Lentz, Vice President of the company’s Global Cyber Solutions Business Unit. “We look forward to continuing to work with US Cyber Command to ensure our forces can maintain the tactical and technological advantage required to succeed in the evolving domain of cyber space.”

The Unified Platform programme was awarded competitively under the US General Services Administration’s Alliant Government-wide Acquisition Contract. Northrop Grumman will carry out the majority of the work in San Antonio, Texas, in addition to sites in Maryland, Georgia and Ohio.
