Aerospace provider Northrop Grumman Corp. has agreed to pay the U.S. $12.5 million to settle fraud allegations that it knowingly provided low-quality commercial electronics for the military’s airplanes, helicopters and submarines, the Department of Justice said Wednesday. É Northrop, a Los Angeles based military contractor with businesses in aircraft, ship building and information systems, purportedly sold equipment it had not bothered to test for the extreme temperatures required for military and space uses from November 1998 through February 2007.
