Ball Aerospace has announced the receipt of contracts worth $17 million from the US Air Force (USAF) for the development and integration of enhanced operational capabilities for the force’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS).

According to the company, Ball Aerospace will spend 18 months integrating data streams from enhanced sensors on the Global Hawk and Predator Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into the Air Force DCGS, providing new net-centric situational awareness, radar, moving target indicators, and spectral capabilities for the intelligence community and the war fighter.

This will ensure that the data from the newest UAV sensors can be fully exploited to meet critical warfighter needs, ‘to improve effectiveness in the field and assist in keeping military personnel safe’.
