Northrop gets $33.5M surveillance contract

Northrop Grumman Corp. has received an additional $33.5 million contract to continue its work on a network of security cameras used at the nation's missile-launch facilities, the company said this week. A team of Northrop Grumman operations -- including a Winter Park unit -- led by its Missions Systems Division received the latest order for the high-security surveillance cameras, officials said.

Northrop Grumman is installing the cameras as part of a program to modernize intercontinental ballistic missile security. The Los Angeles-based defense giant employs more than 3,000 in Central Florida, including about 1,800 at an airborne surveillance systems division in Melbourne and nearly 1,000 at its laser systems division in Apopka.
