Leidos wins $7.9M DARPA contract for spectrum sharing work

Leidos Inc. received a $7.9 million contract to work on Phase 2 of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Shared Spectrum Access for Radar and Communications (SSPARC) program.

Leidos will provide innovative solutions to lead in revolutionary advances to deal with the problem of spectrum congestion.

The congestion limits operational capabilities due to the increasing deployment and bandwidth of wireless communications, the use of net-centric and unmanned systems, and the need for increased flexibility in radar and communications.

SSPARC seeks to support two types of sharing: between military radars and military communications systems; and military radars and commercial communications systems.

DARPA announced the award Sept. 2.
