Following a successful Milestone Decision Authority (MDA) led review, the US Navy’s MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system (UAS) obtained positive Milestone C low-rate initial production approval.

The decision marks the beginning of the production and deployment phase of the US DoD acquisition process. Announced almost in unison was that Northrop Grumman has been awarded a US$255.2 million contract for the procurement of three low-rate initial production Lot 1 MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft, one main operation control station and one forward operation control station, training courseware, and tooling.
