Aerospace firm Northrop Grumman has been tapped to provide eight combat electromagnetic environment simulator (CEESIM) systems to the electronic warfare (EW) self-defense ground station of the EADS (European Aeronautic Defense and Space) Company A400M transport aircraft. Under the terms of this $28.2 million contract, eight CEESIM radio frequency simulators will be provided to EADS, which for these contract arrangements was represented by their business units—i.e., EADA Defense Electronics (DE) and EADS Military Air Systems (MAS). These systems will be manufactured at Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems in Buffalo, NY. The Airbus A400M is a modern, multi-role airlifter that will replace aging fleets of C-130 and C-160 air transport planes currently in service.
