The US Air Force (USAF) has awarded Northrop Grumman three task orders under the A-10 Thunderbolt Lifecycle Program Support (TLPS) –
indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.

Under the terms of the two-year Aircraft Structural Integrity Program Modernisation II task order, Northrop Grumman and Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, will develop and document non-destructive inspection (NDI) procedures for current control points.

The team will also produce source data related to NDI suitable for publication, and report discrepancies found between current technical data and the SSI programme requirements.

The tasks are focused on structural integrity process modernisation and cross-cutting efforts with other weapon systems within the USAF.

The Critical Safety Item Technical Deficiency Improvement task order has one base year with three option years.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman and its associates Wyle Laboratories and Rowan Catalyst, will identify the engineering and technical data tasks required to correct CSI technical and acquisition data deficiencies.
