The U.S. Army has awarded SRC, Inc., an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a total value of $426M over five years, to develop and deliver counter-sUAS technology.
SRC’s radar, electronic warfare and camera technology delivered under this contract will support the Army’s Fixed Site-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System (FS-LIDS) counter-sUAS solution.
SRC’s AN/TPQ-50 air surveillance radar, counter-sUAS EW system and electro-optic/infrared camera are primary components of FS-LIDS. These systems provide accurate detection of low flying and small moving UAS targets, identify and classify those targets, and provide low-cost precision electronic defeat capabilities.
“We are proud to continue supporting the Army with our cutting-edge solutions,” said Kevin Hair, president, and CEO of SRC, Inc. “We look forward to delivering these key counter-sUAS systems to help keep our warfighters safe as they accomplish their missions.”
The Department of Defense (DoD) recently approved the Joint Counter Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Office’s (JCO) selection of the FS-LIDS solution as the interim solution of choice for the fixed or semi-fixed mission.
SRC’s counter-sUAS technology was previously selected by the Army, as part of FS-LIDS and the Air Force, as part of the Medusa program. This IDIQ contract extends that work and will provide avenues for future development of new, advanced counter-UAS capabilities.
