Northrop joins TEDS

Air Force officials announced April 8 that they awarded the $48 million Target Exploitation Development and Support (TEDS) contract to Northrop Grumman’s Information Technology business unit.

Northrop Grumman IT personnel will update TEDS' existing applications with commercial and government-developed software to speed the targeting and attack of enemy forces. They will also support integration testing with major intelligence, military and Air Force systems including the Defense Department Intelligence Information System, Global Command and Control System and the Theater Battle Management Core Systems, according to a DOD statement.

“The Air Force Research Laboratory has a requirement for continued development and enhancement of the current operational targeting functionality of joint targeting automation software towards full automation of all needed targeting capabilities including support to all elements of the joint targeting cycle and to time-critical and time-sensitive targeting operations,” according to the TEDS solicitation.

The TEDS contract covers five years. Air Force officials started the solicitation in August 2004 and completed negotiations on it last December, according to DOD's statement.
