Defense giants to support radar recapitalization program

Three companies have won contracts to support the Air Force’s Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System recapitalization program.

The winners are:

  • Lockheed Martin: $11.5 million
  • Northrop Grumman: $10 million
  • Boeing: $9.9 million

The purpose of the recapitalization program is to adapt the Joint STARS Synthetic Aperture Radar capability work on a smaller and more efficient airframe, according to FedBizOpps.

Under the contract, the companies will provide activities that will help assess maturity of subsystem technology, reduce weapon system integration risk, and lower life cycle cost by virtue of design, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed in King of Prussia, Penn., Melbourne, Fla., and Seattle, Wash., and is expected to be completed July 31, 2016.

Four companies bid on this contract, the Defense Department said.
