SAIC recently 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 contract has a six-month base period of performance, 54 option months, and a total contract value of $31.5 million for both awardees.
“We look forward to producing a comprehensive ARC solution that will potentially mitigate future advanced RF threats to airborne platforms,” said John Fratamico, senior vice president and group general manager, SAIC. “This technology represents the trending future for current and new electronic warfare systems operated by our military.”
The contract calls on SAIC to 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. Work will be performed primarily in Arlington, Va. and Clifton, NJ.
