Northrop Grumman is to continue sustainment services for the U.S. Air Force fleet of E-8C Joint STARS aircraft under a $210 million contract.

The award is a continuation of a sustainment contract for the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System fleet based at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., and at forward operating locations throughout the world.

"Since 2000, our team has ensured that Joint STARS remains ready to support the high level of demand from combatant commanders," said Bryan Lima, director, Manned C2ISR programs, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "As the Air Force looks toward the future of Joint STARS, Northrop Grumman has the knowledge, experience and infrastructure to provide the greatest value in meeting the Air Force's battle management, command-and-control requirements now, and in the future."

Northrop Grumman's sustainment services for the E-8C fleet includes logistics, engineering, training, mission support, supply chain and depot maintenance support.

In addition to sustainment services at Robins Air Force Base, the services are also provided at the company's Manned Aircraft Design Center of Excellence in Melbourne, Fla., and at the Lake Charles Maintenance and Modification Center in Louisiana.
