Two to support DARPA ISR program

Two companies have won contracts to support the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node (TERN) program.

The winners are:

  • Northrop Grumman – $19.3 million
  • AeroVironment Inc. – $19 million

The TERN program combines land- and sea-based approaches to supporting airborne assets with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

Both companies were awarded Phase II of the program, which continues the preliminary design and risk reduction that was begun in Phase I, according to DARPA’s website.

Work will be performed at various locations in the United States and is expected to wrap up Sept. 30, 2015.
