Alliant Techsystems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northrop Grumman, won a contract valued $46 million for Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missiles (AARGM) to Germany.
This modification exercises an option to procure full rate production Lot 11 AARGMs to include the conversion of 51 AGM-88B High Speed Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARMs) into AGM-88E AARGM all-up-rounds, as well as related supplies and services necessary for their manufacture, spares, and fleet deployment for the government of Germany.
