Northrop Grumman uses its Modular Open Systems Approach-CompetitiveTM (MOSA-CTM) strategic business and engineering process to enable continuous competition on the program, thereby driving down life cycle costs. MOSA-CTM ensures vendor-neutral, enduring solutions that improve interoperability and lower the total cost of ownership.[mappress]Press Release, June 4, 2013; Image: Northrop Grumman View post tag: warfighter View post tag: CANES View post tag: US June 4, 2013 View post tag: bid View post tag: americas View post tag: Naval Northrop Grumman to Bid for US Navy’s CANES Deployment Contract View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today Northrop Grumman to Bid for US Navy’s CANES Deployment Contract Equipment & technology View post tag: Defence View post tag: Deployment View post tag: contract View post tag: Grumman Share this articlelast_img read more
