Northrop Grumman on Wednesday notified about 60 people, primarily in Maryland and Virginia, in its electronics systems segment that they will be out of jobs at the end of the month.
In October, the aerospace and defense contractor announced it was cutting its electronic systems staff by up to 350 positions.
About 280 people accepted voluntary buyouts, but "the number of volunteers did not reduce our headcount to the extent required," Jack Martin Jr., a Northrop Grumman spokesman, said Wednesday.
In addition to Maryland and Virginia, layoffs will occur "in California, Illinois and elsewhere," he said. The company is not providing a state-level breakdown of the layoff numbers.
