SRC to continue Sensor Beam programme work
SRC will continue development work on the US Air Force's Sensor Beam programme, the company announced on 4 April. The $95.7 million contract was awarded by the air force's 57th Intelligence Squadron.
The work involves providing expert analysis and support to four electronic warfare databases that are used by the Department of Defense (DoD) and US allied partners.
The databases contain information about the characteristics of foreign, domestic, commercial and military radio frequency-emitting systems. The information is used by the DoD for electronic warfare reprogramming and data based mission planning, helping to identify and mitigate threats.
Paul Tremont, president and CEO of SRC, said: 'We are honoured to have been chosen by the air force to continue to provide the 57th Intelligence Squadron with industry leading technical data analysis and software development that has the power to save lives.'
