Raytheon aids DARPA effort to improve battlefield airspace management
Raytheon is to research, develop, test and demonstrate an Airspace Tactical Automation System (ATLAS) for DARPA.
Under a $7.58 million contract announced by the DoD on 10 February, Raytheon will test airspace management systems and algorithms for airspace planning. It will also develop a sensor network for delivering ‘real-time spatial and temporal tracking of airborne platforms’, including UAVs.
ATLAS supports first-phase work on the Air Space Total Awareness for Rapid Tactical Execution (ASTARTE) programme.
Launched by DARPA in 2020, ASTARTE is intended to de-conflict joint air operations and help military personnel generate a common operational picture of airspace in potentially cluttered A2/AD environments.
