Northrop Grumman Statement on Boeing’s Protest of the Long-Range Strike Bomber Program


FALLS CHURCH, Va., Nov. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The following is a statement by Randy Belote, vice president of strategic communications for Northrop Grumman Corporation:

Northrop Grumman Corporation is disappointed that its former LRS-B competitors have decided to disrupt a program that is so vital to national security.

The U.S. Air Force conducted an exceptionally thorough and disciplined process with multiple layers of review. Their process took into full account the parties’ respective offerings and their relative capabilities to execute their offerings on schedule and on budget.

Northrop Grumman offered an approach that is inherently more affordable and based on demonstrated performance and capabilities. Our record stands in contrast to that of other manufacturers’ large aircraft programs of the last decade.

As the only company to ever design and build a stealth bomber, we offered the best solution for our nation’s security. We look forward to the GAO reaffirming the Defense Department’s decision so we can continue work on this critically vital program.
