Northrop Grumman has been awarded the contract to upgrade an E-2C airborne early warning and control aircraft for the Egypt E-2C Foreign Military Sales Program.
Under this $38 million contract, the aircraft will be refurbished and upgraded to the Hawkeye 2000 (HE2K) configuration to include upgrades to the radar, mission computer, tactical mission system displays and navigation system. This aircraft modification work

'The Egyptian Air Force has been a key customer of Northrop Grumman's for more than 20 years,' said Jim Culmo, vice president of Airborne Early Warning and Battle Management Command and Control Programs for Northrop Grumman's Integrated Systems sector. 'We value the Egyptian Air Force's trust in our ability to continue to provide an airborne early warning platform that will enhance their fleet interoperability.'
