Northrop Grumman's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye: The U.S. Navy's Eyes and Ears Got Long Legs The ability to receive fuel addresses one of the few shortcomings of the new airborne surveillance plane. The E-2D’s aerial refueling capability has under development since 2013, when the Navy awarded Northrop Grumman an engineering, manufacturing and development (EMD) contract. Testing—which will include three modified aircraft—will continue through 2018. The Navy expects to start a production cut-in in 2018 and start retrofits that year.
