Orbital ATK $90 Million for B-2 Composite Structures

Five-Year Contract to Support SPIRIT Service Life Extension Programme Orbital ATK announced on 30 May it has received a $90 million contract from Northrop Grumman to manufacture composite parts for the US Air Force’s B-2 SPIRIT ‘stealth bomber.’ Under the terms of the 5-year contract, the company will perform non-recurring engineering work and produce 17 ‘hot trailing edge’ composite parts.

In its aerospace composites business, Orbital ATK uses proprietary production processes that shorten the manufacturing cycle and produce extremely high quality, complex components with unmatched repeatability through sophisticated robotics automation.

We are honoured to partner with Northrop Grumman to extend the service life of the B-2 bomber,” Steve Earl, Vice President and General Manager of Orbital ATK’s Aerospace Structures Division, commented. “This programme capitalises on our core competency of providing advanced composite structures that use innovative Orbital ATK manufacturing processes to fit our customer’s needs.”
