DOD taps SAIC to study space radar systems

The Air Force Research Laboratory has awarded an $8.5 million contract to Science Applications International Corp. to research advanced space-based radar technologies.

Under the five-year contract, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the San Diego company will develop and document new algorithmic approaches for space radar systems.

SAIC will also evaluate the performance of existing systems, according to an Air Force statement.

'Under the proposed effort, SAIC is providing technical research, analyses and assessment of various advanced radar concepts for DARPA and AFRL," said Steven A. Scott, program manager in the lab's Information and Intelligence Exploitation Division.
