Valve Partners With Day Of Defeat Team
Valve Software has formed an official partnership with the Day of Defeat team for the continued development of Day of Defeat, the popular World War II mod. Like Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat is a team-based game built on Valve's award-winning action game Half-Life, but it is set during World War II rather than in the present day. Players assume the role of one of five types of Axis or Allied soldiers in Western Europe, and they work with their team to complete various objectives, such as capturing an enemy area, defending a beach, or destroying enemy forces. Day of Defeat 3.0 will launch next week with new missions and gameplay types, a new player class, and other improvements.

Northrop Grumman To Provide US Navy Missile And Launcher Support
A team led by Northrop Grumman Corporation will provide essential program management and technical support to the U.S. Navy's primary surface-to-air missile and launcher program, STANDARD Missile/Surface Launcher Systems (SM/SLS).

The SM/SLS contract was awarded by the Naval Sea Systems Command and is valued at $49 million over five years to Northrop Grumman's Information Technology (IT) sector. Additional performance-based award options bring the potential value of the contract to $106 million over 10 years.

"This significant contract award retains our strong STANDARD Missile support business, while expanding our support to include the VLS component of the Aegis weapon system," said John Edwards, vice president, Combat Systems Support, Northrop Grumman IT.

Under the SM/SLS contract, the Northrop Grumman team will provide systems engineering and program management support; technical and programmatic support for STANDARD missile research and development activities; financial management, acquisition and logistics management support for the STANDARD and VLS production programs; and technical, analytical and logistics management support for the STANDARD missile and VLS foreign military sales programs.
