Northrop Grumman Cites CAES as Top Supplier

June 10, 2024
The F-16 is one of the many defense vehicles supported by Northrop Grumman with CAES as a major component supplier.

Major defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp. acknowledged CAES as one of its top aerospace and defense suppliers with its Supplier Performance Excellence Award. CAES Defense Systems, a designer and developer of critical electronic solutions for aerospace and defense industries, received the award for parts and services from three Northrop Grumman Sectors: Mission Systems, Defense Systems, and Space Systems—for excellent performance at CAES Defense Systems. 

CAES President and CEO Mike Kahn said, “CAES is proud to be recognized by Northrop Grumman for our performance and commitment to meeting their high standards of excellence, and we very much value our relationship as a trusted partner.”

He added, “Across CAES, our teams are dedicated to quality, reliability, and customer success, and the award demonstrates our shared values to best support our customers' mission-critical needs.” CAES provides solutions for electronic systems on land, in the air, and at sea, and has been a long-time contracting partner of Northrop Grumman Corp.

The awards, made during a ceremony in McLean, Va. in mid-March 2024, recognize Northrop Grumman partners who maintained exceptional management, cost, scheduling, engineering for sustainment, and performance for customer satisfaction. CAES works with Northrop Grumman on electronic-warfare (EW) systems within the F-15, F-16, and F-35 aircraft as just a few examples of its support for the major defense contractor (see image above)
