ASA Is Awarded Excellence Award

January 13, 2006

Applied Science Associates (ASA) has been awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation’s suppliers excellence award. The award honors suppliers who have contributed substantively to Northrop Grumman’s success through their technical capability and commitment to producing quality products and services. It signifies that ASA has met Northrop Grumman’s highest criteria for delivery, quality, cost and schedule management, and customer satisfaction.

“This award honors suppliers who have made significant contributions and provided outstanding support to Mission Systems,” said Jerry Agee, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. “They are an asset to our company and are critical in ensuring that we achieve our customers’ mission objectives.”

ASA is working closely with Northrop Grumman on rapidly evolving technologies to evaluate the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) development plan. The IOOS is a coordinated national and international network of observations and data transmission, data management and communications (DMAC), and data analyses and modeling that systematically and efficiently acquires and disseminates data and information on past, present and future states of the oceans and coastal waters. The IOOS is the U.S. contribution to the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).

ASA is also working with Northrop Grumman to develop SAROPS, the latest advancement in search & rescue technology for the United States Coast Guard. This software will be deployed throughout the U.S. Coast Guard in 2006.

“This successful collaboration demonstrates the power of a large systems integrator working with small companies like ASA that have highly specialized domain experience”, says the CEO of ASA, Eoin Howlett, “and allows us to work on projects with national and international significance.”
