POMEZIA, Italy, 12 Sept. 2012. Officials at prime contractor Alenia Aermacchi and the Eurofighter Consortium have selected Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE:NOC) to provide inertial and satellite navigation systems for Tranche 3 of the Eurofighter Typhoon multirole combat aircraft under a new, 30 million euro contract.

Northrop Grumman Italia will provide the Eurofighter Fiber-optical Gyro Inertial Navigation System and a global positioning system (GPS) receiver for Eurofighter aircraft in all participating nations (United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Spain).

Northrop Grumman Italia previously delivered more than 400 inertial navigation systems for Tranches 1 and 2 of the Eurofighter program.
