May 20, 2003|From Bloomberg News

Northrop Grumman Corp. received a $175-million, 10-month contract from the Postal Service to make systems that analyze mail for biological threats.

The devices will test air samples at mail-sorting facilities nationwide for anthrax spores and other biological agents, the Century City-based company said. Northrop will serve as prime contractor using technology for testing air samples developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Cepheid Inc.

Northrop's shares fell $2.21 to $88.69 on the NYSE.
