IN BRIEF
The Maritime Electronic Warfare
Division of the US Navy's Naval Surface
Warfare Warfare Center, Crane Division
(Crane, IN) is requesting information
from companies that can support a new
initiative to leverage the AN/SLQ-25
NIXIE Torpedo Decoy suite for an RF
decoy application to protect ships from
anti-ship missiles. The concept, known
as Ship-Towed Active Radio Frequency
(RF) Decoy Sled (STARS), aims to connect the SLQ-25's onboard electronics
and fiber-optic cable to an RF decoy
"sled" that would be launched from a
ship, towed behind it and retrieved.
The concept is outlined in a 2011 paper titled, "Utilizing Open Architecture
Design to Effectively Counter Emerging Threats," by Robert S. Lanham and
Richard W. Stocke. The Maritime EW
Division's plan is to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development
Agreement (CRADA) to explore the
concept. The STARS point of contact is
Mrs. Jenna Dix, NSWC, Crane Division,
Science & Technology Division (Code
QXN), (812) 854-5049, e-mail jenna.

dix@navy.mil. Responses are due by
October 8.

to include supplies and services for
the US Navy and the Governments of
Australia and Italy. Work will be performed in Northridge, California, Fusaro, Italy, and Ridgecrest, California
and is expected to be complete in December 2018. In other program news,
an AARGM scored a direct hit against
the US Navy's Mobile Ship Target during
recent Block 1 upgrade testing at the
Point Mugu Sea Range.

COL Marty Hagenston has been appointed to lead the US Army's Project
Manager Electronic Warfare and Cyber
(PM EW&C) organization. He replaces
COL Joseph Dupont, who led the office
since July 2012. The PM EW&C office also
underwent a change of charter ceremony to add "cyber" to its name. (Previously, it was the Project Manager Electronic
Warfare - PM EW.) The name change
reflects the US Army's focus on Cyber
Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA).

The US Army's Product Manager
Electronic Warfare Integration (Pd
EWI) has issued a request for information to identify sources that can provide
solutions or technologies to support development of RF Interference Mitigation (RIM) components and vehicular
integration kits (RIM KIT). Specifically,
the US Army is seeking vendors with
existing technologies to mitigate compatibility issues arising from collocated
systems and integrate multiple technologies in a modular vehicular mount to
provide appropriate interface to antennas on host platforms. The ability to pro-

Orbital ATK, Defense Electronic
Systems has been awarded a $118.7
million firm-fixed-price contract by
the US Navy for the full rate production of the AGM-88E Advanced AntiRadiation Guided Missile (AARGM).
The contract includes the conversion
of AGM-88B High-Speed Anti-Radiation
Missiles into 142 AGM All-Up-Rounds
