Leidos has won a $14 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to provide research and development in support of Phase 2 for the Shared Spectrum Access for Radar and Communications (SSPARC) program.
The contract has an eleven month base period of performance, an eleven month option, the company announced Tuesday.
The SSPARC program seeks to improve radar and communications capabilities through spectrum sharing. In Phase 1 of the SSPARC effort the Leidos team proved, via a high-fidelity end-to-end simulation, that the minimum distance from military radar that commercial wireless may operate can be reduced 50x.
Two innovative interference mitigation mechanisms, coordinated frequency hopping and mainbeam avoidance were developed to allow shorter minimum stand-off distances.
In Phase 2 of the contract, Leidos will perform laboratory testing and a field demonstration to validate the technology using real-time software with physical radar and communications systems.
If successful, the algorithms developed will allow increased radio frequency spectrum availability for both radar and communications systems, which is currently a significant operational constraint.
Exelis and Leidos have been selected to continue to evolve advanced technology development for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Adaptive Radar Countermeasures (ARC) program, Exelis said in a statement Today. The five-year subcontract from Leidos could be worth up to $15
Leidos has selected DCNS as part of a multinational consortium to participate in the system engineering and the integration of the NATO Ballistic Missile Defence. The contract has a four-year base period of performance, two one-year options plus one eight-month option, and a total contract value of $77 million if all options are exercised, DCNS announced in its press release on Friday
Leidos has won a contract from US Army Space and Missile Defense Command to provide technical solutions for countering Narcoterrorism. Leidos is one of four contractors eligible to compete for work in support of the Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (CNTPO)
Leidos has completed initial performance trials of the technology demonstration vessel it is developing for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)'s Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program. The at-sea tests took place off the coast of San Diego, California
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to replace Global Positions Systems with Atomic Clocks with Enhanced Stability (ACES). “All of our modern communications, navigation and electronic warfare systems, as well as our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, depend on accurate time-keeping,” said Lutwak, who will oversee the new program, called Atomic Clocks with Enhanced Stability (ACES) Wednesday in an official press release
Leidos has won a $661.8 million contract from the US Army to design, produce, integrate and test for the Airborne Reconnaissance Low-Enhanced (ARL-E) program of record
