Litton stands to sell more than 2,000 embedded (EGI) LN-100G global-positioning/inertial-navigation systems, worth $275 million, to equip US Navy McDonnell Douglas F-18s and Northrop Grumman EA-6Bs, after being selected for an initial integration programme. The first contract, awarded through the US Air Force, is worth $5.4 million and covers the supply of 12 systems. Hardware and software integration will follow as part of a US defence department programme to fit all aircraft in the inventory with a global-positioning system.
