WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) The US Army has awarded Northrop Grumman with a $349.4 million contract to provide Poland with its Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System, the Department of Defense said in a press release.

"Northrop Grumman, Huntsville, Alabama, was awarded a $349,377,402 firm-fixed-price, Foreign Military Sales (Poland) contract for the procurement of two complete battery sets of Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System production hardware and software," the release said on Wednesday.
