The U.S. Air Force has awarded the Southwest Research Institute a $9,423,767 contract for research and development, the Department of Defense announced Monday.

The contract marks the second phase of a three-phase program aiming to improve the Air Force's ability to detect and geolocate high frequency emitters. The first phase examined the technological innovations needed, which included exploring antenna concepts, signal detection, and the ability to detect the dynamic state of the ionosphere.

The second phase moves the program into system integration of the innovations, which will be followed by a non-real-time field test. Real-time testing will begin during Phase 3.

Southwest Research Institute is an independent non-profit research and development organization based in San Antonio, Texas, and is staffed by almost 2,800 people. The organization specializes in the creation and transfer of engineering technology. Other work includes emissions certification testing and space science.

Their contract with the Air Force is expected to be completed by September 27, 2018.

How a flying bat sees space
Washington DC (SPX) Oct 26, 2015
Recordings from echolocating bat brains have for the first time given researchers a view into how mammals understand 3-D space. By training bats to fly around obstacles in a room, and sit patiently on a platform, a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded research team were able to interpret how the animals use echolocation - a high-frequency sound navigation system that bats use to hunt - to ... read more
