SAIC awarded DARPA contract in support of the Adaptive Radar Countermeasures program

Science Applications International Corporation has been awarded a prime contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to provide engineering services in support of the Adaptive Radar Countermeasures 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, N.J.

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.”
