The Long Island facilities of two military contractors have won multimillion-dollar government contracts, the Defense Department announced this week.
The Bethpage unit of Northrop Grumman Corp. is receiving a $19 million modification to a previously awarded contract to develop software that assists in countering mines, submarines and surface vessels, including small boats, for the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship, which operates along the coast.
In the announcement Tuesday, the Defense Department said that the Bethpage facility would be allotted 43 percent of the work, followed by units in Oxnard, California (18 percent) and San Diego, California (14 percent).
On Monday, the Defense Department announced that Hauppauge-based Advanced Acoustic Concepts LLC won a $13.8 million contract to upgrade flight simulators for the MH-60R helicopter and P-8A jet.
The U.S. Navy aircraft employ sensors and weapons to detect and counter hostile submarines and surface vessels.
Seventy percent of the work on the sole-source contract will be performed in Hauppauge, with the remainder being divided equally among Jacksonville, Florida; Patuxent River, Maryland, and St. Louis, Missouri.
