WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – "Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., San Diego, California, is being awarded $62.4 million… contract… for operation and maintenance services in support of the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance-Demonstrator (BAMS-D) program," the announcement said on Thursday.

The contract option provides for logistics support, organization, intermediate and depot level maintenance as well as field services representatives to ensure the BAMS-D drones are mission-capable, according to the Defense Department.

The drones are used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

The Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton is an unmanned aerial vehicle under development for the US Navy as a surveillance aircraft to provide real-time ISR over vast ocean and coastal regions and to complement the Boeing P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft.
