NORTHROP GRUMMAN OFFERS EXPERTISE FOR US NAVY’S E-XX TACAMO PROGRAM
Northrop Grumman will offer its battle management, command and control expertise for US Navy’s E-XX TACAMO Program.
Northrop Grumman Corporation is leveraging its weapons system integration and battle management leadership to compete for the U.S. Navy’s E-XX TACAMO fleet of aircraft systems.
The Navy’s E-XX TACAMO aircraft will be based on the C-130J platform and provides connectivity between the National Command Authority and ballistic submarines capable of delivering nuclear weapons. The Navy currently operates a fleet of E-6B Mercury aircraft to provide survivable, reliable and endurable airborne command, control and communications between the National Command Authority and U.S. strategic and non-strategic forces. The Navy intends to replace the E-6B fleet with the E-XX to modernize this critical strategic deterrent mission.
For more than six decades, Northrop Grumman has delivered on the development, production and modification of the Navy’s E-2 Hawkeye system as the prime contractor, and continues to provide total mission assurance with proven solutions that are secure, survivable, multi-layered systems designed for total weapon system security.
