Long Island, NY - April 27, 2018 - Today, Congressman Tom Suozzi (D – Long Island, Queens) announced that Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Bethpage, New York has been awarded a contract of $7,255,294 by the Department of the Navy to develop machine learning algorithms (MLAs) for the Reactive Electronic Attack Measures (REAM) Program. The project is expected to be completed by December 2019, with all work being done on site in Bethpage.
“The aerospace and defense industries are a critical component of our district’s economy and important for job creation. This contract is great news for Northrop Grumman, and for people living on Long Island. It helps sustain Long Island’s legacy of being the Cradle of Aviation and Hi-Tech Island,” said Congressman Suozzi.
Northrop Grumman Systems, headquartered in West Falls Church, VA, is the fifth-largest defense contractor in world.
