Washington (UPI) Apr 26, 2016
A dozen U.S. companies have won places on a multiple-award, IDIQ contract for the Navy's Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare Command and Control program.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity awards are worth a combined total of $800 million, the Department of Defense announced.
The purpose of the Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare Command and Control program is to identify the study, design, fabrication, integration, and test and evaluation tasks anticipated for the development and demonstration of a set of prototypes, and their component subsystems, that integrate radio frequency functionality electronic warfare, radar, communications, information operations into a common set of multi-function apertures, electronics and software/firmware.
The integration will be done through an architecture that is modular, scalable across platforms and open at the RF, electronics and software/firmware levels.
The prototypes are to be capable of providing multiple, simultaneous, independent beams which can together perform any of the specified functions.
The open RF systems will also be integrated with previously developed RF systems, and with combat and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems.
The companies chosen to participate in the program through task orders: Lockheed Martin, ArgonST, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Advanced Technology Programs, EOIR Technologies, SI2 Technologies, S2 Corp., Sea Corp., Leidos, Rockwell Collins, Physical Optics Corp., and TiCom Geomanics.
The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Va., is the contracting activity, the Defense Department said.
