RDA Inc has received a $19.98 million cost-plus-fixed-fee order from the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, for continued R&D of systems for ASW and underwater warfare.

RDA will work on three DoD Small Business Innovation Research projects: Signal Processing and System Concepts to Exploit Passive Signals in Airborne Active ASW Missions; Littoral Environment Parameter Estimation from Bistatic and Multistatic Fleet Air ASW Acoustic Reverberation Data; and Multi-Sensor Data Fusion for Littoral Undersea Warfare.

R&D efforts will include engineering, technical, managerial, analysis, prototyping, maintenance, quality control, training and test participation, the DoD announced on 8 September.

Additionally, this order provides operational software development, acoustic capability enhancements and technical engineering for further development and transition of technologies and system performance improvements, providing on-going fleet training and maintenance products for deployed systems.

Work is expected to be completed in September 2025.
