Textron Systems has been selected to provide a reentry platform for the intercontinental ballistic missile system Northrop Grumman is developing as the prime contractor of the U.S. Air Force's Ground Based Strategic Deterrent program.

Northrop won the $13.3B engineering development and manufacturing contract earlier this month to replace the current LGM-30G Minuteman III ICBM system.

Textron said Tuesday the GBSD system will be built to support the U.S. military's nuclear deterrence strategy.

Wayne Prender, a senior vice president at Textron's systems business, said the company has developed and manufactured technologies over the past five decades to help the Department of Defense defend against national security threats.
