CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - April 17, 2008 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has won contracts to upgrade the navigation radars on the Canadian Navy's Kingston-Class maritime coastal defense vessels (MCDV) and Canadian Coast Guard vessels.

The contracts, with a total value of more than $2 million (USD), were awarded to Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit.

SNC-Lavalin, the logistics support project manager for the MCDV program, has awarded contracts to Sperry Marine to replace the existing radar units on the 12 Kingston-Class ships. Each ship will be fitted with a suite of interswitched BridgeMaster E X-band and S-band radars with three 340-millimeter flat-screen displays. The installations will take place at the SNC-Lavalin facilities in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and Esquimalt, British Columbia.

Sperry Marine also recently received a three-year contract to upgrade the radars across the fleet of Canadian Coast Guard vessels with new BridgeMaster E 180, 250 and 340 radar sets.

"Sperry Marine has been a major supplier to the Canadian Navy and Coast Guard for many years," said Alan Aitken, national sales manager for Sperry Marine Canada. "These recent contract awards are a reflection of Sperry Marine's outstanding reputation for reliable state-of-the-art equipment backed by an extensive worldwide service organization."

Sperry Marine, headquartered in Charlottesville, Va., and with major engineering and support offices in New Malden, United Kingdom and Hamburg, Germany, provides smart navigation and ship control solutions for the international marine industry with customer service and support through offices in 16 countries, sales representatives in 47 countries and authorized service depots in more than 250 locations worldwide.
