Northrop Grumman plans new way to replace obsolete parts on B-2

6 February 2014

The US Air Force will get its first look at a faster, more affordable way to replace obsolete avionics on the B-2 stealth bomber under a contract awarded last August to Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC).

Under the 43-month, USD43.5m award, the company will produce a functional replacement for a B-2 avionics box called the Audio Central Distribution Unit (ACDU). More significantly, the work will map out a smart, cost-effective way to address a growing threat to B-2 readiness: mission-essential parts that cannot be repaired or easily replaced.

Northrop Grumman is the Air Force´s prime contractor for the B-2, the flagship for the nation´s long range strike arsenal and one of the world´s most survivable aircraft.
