Move (OTM), an advanced technology
development opportunity seeking subsystems and components to support
future capability – specifically a vehicle-mounted, on-the-move short-range
air-defense laser system that defeats
low observable or low radar cross section
threats to the Marine Corps Air-Ground
Task Force (MAGTF).
The development is driven by a shortfall in the Marine Corps’ capability to
counter low altitude threats, especially
from Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs)

that may carry surveillance payloads.
The GBAD DE OTM is intended to defend
MAGTF assets against these threats as
the service performs its reconnaissance,
surveillance, targeting and engagement
of enemy forces mission.
ONR has a specific interest in seeing three subsystems – volume surveillance radar, command and control (C2),
and a high-energy laser (HEL) weapon
– mounted on light tactical vehicles,
starting with the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) and with some demonstra-

tions on the M1152A1 HMMWV. The BAA
notes that though these three systems
exist separately, there is no one capability that satisfies all three requirements.
The focus is on research and development of components that might eventually be integrated into a HEL weapon,
including a M1152A1 HMMWV-Mounted
mobile/expeditionary/on-the-move laser weapon system with full power lasting up to 120 seconds, followed by a
20 minute recharge to 80% of capacity
– at a weight not to exceed 2,500 lbs.
Also sought are Light Tactical VehicleMounted command, control and communications (C3), and a Light Tactical
Vehicle-Mounted Volume Surveillance
Radar.
The BAA number is ONRBAA13-001.
White papers were due April 26. The
points of contact are Frank Kennedy,

GTRI SIMULATES HOSTILE
UAV SENSORS
Georgia Tech Research Institute
(GTRI) in Atlanta, GA, is developing integrated hardware devices that simulate
the surveillance sensors potentially carried aboard hostile unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Produced by GTRI as part
of its Threat Unmanned Devices program
and sponsored by the US Army Threat
Systems Management Office, the objective is to gauge the effectiveness of
countermeasures against enemy drones.
As described by Vince Camp, a GTRI
senior research engineer and principal
investigator for the project, “We’re reproducing the ISR [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance] capability
that a threat UAV would have. Simulating this ISR capability makes it possible
to test the effectiveness of countermeasures against a potentially hostile signal
intelligence capability in the air.”
GTRI’s devices simulate three principal threat capabilities including an
electro-optical infrared sensor package that includes thermal-imaging capability, other sensors that detect and
analyze communication signals, and
equipment capable of jamming weapons
systems. Additional threat-simulation
capabilities could be added in the future.
