Northrop Grumman Submits KC-X Final Proposal Revision to U.S. Air Force

Northrop Grumman
: 03 January, 2008  (New Product)
Northrop Grummam has announced that it has submitted its Final Proposal Revision (FPR) for the U.S. Air Force KC-X Tanker Program. The projected contract award is expected on or about Jan. 31, 2008 according to the Air Force.
Northrop Grumman is leading a world-class team of global aerospace suppliers including EADS, General Electric, Sargent Fletcher, Honeywell, Parker, AAR, Knight Aerospace, Telephonics and others in offering the KC-30 Tanker to the U.S. Air Force to replace its aging fleet of KC-135 Tankers. The KC-30 Tanker is based upon the highly reliable, modern and commercially successful A330 platform provided by EADS.

'I am extremely proud of the quality of the KC-30 team and the progress it continues to make since initial proposal submission in April 2007,' said Ronald D. Sugar, Northrop Grumman chairman and chief executive officer. 'Our solution, the KC-30 Tanker, not only offers greater capabilities and versatility than any tanker available today, it offers the lowest entry risk. It also meets all of the Air Force's key requirements and is superior in every respect to the KC-135R it replaces. The KC-30 is clearly a 'game changer' in that it is the only solution to provide the potential breakthrough in future Air Force air
mobility capability as the C-17 did in replacing the venerable C-141.'
