The US Army has awarded BAE Systems a contract worth up to $97.9 million to develop a Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) next-generation missile warning system for aircraft that will protect pilots and crews from new and emerging threats.

Under the Limited Interim Missile Warning System (LIMWS) contract, the company’s 2-Color Advanced Warning System (2C-AWS) will provide the aircraft with missile warning and hostile fire protection to improve survivability and mission effectiveness in contested environments, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The company developed its 2C-AWS system with Leonardo DRS and proposed the solution in response to the Army’s June solicitation for LIMWS. Leonardo DRS will provide the 2-color infrared sensor as the eyes of the system.

2C-AWS will work with existing Army aircraft survivability equipment, including aircraft interfaces and countermeasure systems.
