Under the contract, the companies will provide applied and advanced research and development to conduct leading-edge system of systems spectrum warfare applications and advanced technology development.

Research will be conducted utilizing a multispectral synthetic battlespace simulation to integrate sensor and electronic warfare technologies; identify and resolve technology issues and risks; demonstrate technology applications and benefits; and perform rapid technology insertions and transitions, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and is expected to be complete by Oct. 28, 2022.
