The US Army Project Manager
for Terrestrial Sensors (PMTS) has
awarded Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase contracts
totaling $154.4M to Raytheon Company
(Waltham, MA) and DRS Technologies
(Arlington, VA) for the third generation Forward Looking Infrared (3GEN
FLIR). The 3GEN FLIR will provide common components (the B-Kit) that will be
integrated into combat vehicle sights
including high-definition dual band
(mid-wave infrared/long-wave infrared) focal plane array, Dewar cooler
bench, optics, and electronics needed
to convert thermal radiation into video
images. 3GEN FLIR will replace Second
Generation FLIR components, starting
with those in the Abrams Tank and the
Bradley Fighting Vehicle and may expand to include a 3GEN FLIR upgrade to
the Long Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System (LRAS3) and other current
or future ground or aviation sensor systems. The contract provides for 96 BKits if all options are exercised.

The Department of Defense has submitted its latest round of Selected Acquisition Reports (SARs) to Congress, which
provide details on major defense acquisition program cost, schedule, and performance changes since the December 2014
reporting period. Several EW programs are
included in the latest SARs. The Navy's
AGM-88E Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided
Missile (AARGM) program cost increased
by $484.8 million from $2.17 billion to
$2.66 billion, due primarily to a quantity increase of 556 missiles from 1,879
to 2,435 (+$294.9 million) and associated
schedule, engineering, and estimating allocations (+$11.4 million). The Navy's EA18G Growler program costs increased $1.28
billion (+8.87%) from $14.39 billion to
$15.67 billion, due primarily to a quantity
increase of seven aircraft from 153 to 160
(+$751.5 million). And, finally, the Navy's
IDECM Block 4 program costs increased
$310.6 million (+33.17%) from $936.5 million to $1.25 billion, due primarily to a
quantity increase of 134 ALQ-214(V)4/5s
from 190 to 324 (+$302.1 million). a

Last month, the Air Force Test Center
(Edwards AFB, CA) issued an RFI to determine what industry can provide to meet
its requirement for two Transportable
Mobile Monitoring and Direction Finding
Instrumentation Equipment Systems that
can monitor and continuously record up to
110 MHz of RF spectrum at any frequency
from at least 20 MHz to 8 GHz for up to
14 hours or longer at lower bandwidths.
Recorded signals must be time and location tagged using a platform-installed
GPS receiver and IRIG time-code generator. The DF system should be capable of
autonomously determining the direction
of many types of conventional emitters
over a frequency range of at least 1 GHz
to 8 GHz while connected through the
range network to a central control station. The point of contact is James R.
