Northrop Grumman's Navigation Systems Division will provide the STE and training for U.S. government technicians, subcontracting to Lockheed Martin Corp.

"Northrop Grumman has worked closely with Lockheed Martin and the Navy to develop a customized solution for MH-60 avionics repairs that supports their partnership," says Gorik Hossepian, vice president of navigation and positioning systems, Navigation Systems Division. "Having the necessary test equipment on site will give the Navy greater flexibility in performing repairs and help minimize lifecycle support costs."
