Northrop Grumman has received a follow-on contract from the US Navy to provide support services for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service Law Enforcement Information Exchange System (Linx).

Under the $32m-plus IDIQ contract, the company will deploy, operate, maintain and enhance the LInX system at new and existing law enforcement agencies across the country.

The Northrop-led team, including Elluminates Software, will also provide consolidation, data conversion and integration, as well as software and interface development for the system.

Northrop Grumman’s vice-president for civil cyber and security Ed Sturms said: "LInX provides law enforcement with the crime and incident data they require when they need it."

Work will be carried out at the company’s facility in Chantilly and at Quantico, both in Virginia, US.
