There is growing demand for India to enhance its space force structure to meet military needs.
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.
