Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced it was awarded a prime contract by
the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to provide engineering
services in support of the Adaptive Radar Countermeasures (ARC) program. The
multiple-award, cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a six-month base period of
performance, 54 option months, and a total contract value of $31.5 million for
both awardees, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily
in Arlington, Va. and Clifton, NJ.
The goal of the ARC program is to enable U.S. airborne electronic warfare
systems to automatically generate effective countermeasures against new,
unknown and adaptive radars in real-time in the field. Under the contract,
SAIC will provide engineering services including the design, development,
integration and testing of a viable ARC system that allows independent
insertion of additional third party algorithm developers. SAIC is one of two
contractors eligible to compete for task orders under this contract.
"We look forward to producing a comprehensive ARC solution that will
potentially mitigate future advanced RF threats to airborne platforms," said
John Fratamico, SAIC senior vice president and group general manager. "This
technology represents the trending future for current and new electronic
warfare systems operated by our military."
