Under two recently awarded contracts from DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) worth a combined $5.4 million, BAE Systems is developing technology that will enable compact UAS to conduct multiple mission tasks with single, multifunction payloads that can adapt to changing battlefield situations and mission needs in real time.
To address the need for radio systems that can adapt to changing environments on the fly and that can be easily reconfigured once in the field, BAE Systems has developed the MATRICS (Microwave Array Technology for Reconfigurable Integrated Circuits) chip.
BAE Systems Australia announced a team of industry partners that ensures the best of Australian expertise is in place for its bid to upgrade Australia’s long-range high frequency (HF) radar network. Central to BAE Systems’ team is a partnership with leading defence systems integrator, Raytheon Australia, that will deliver unparalleled systems integration experience and expertise to the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) project.
BAE Systems has been awarded an $11 million contract by the Office of Naval Research to develop next-generation electronic warfare technology that will quickly detect, locate, and identify emitters of radio frequency signals
BAE Systems and Dassault Aviation along with industrial partners have been awarded a £120 million two-year contract by the UK and French governments to help define the Franco-British requirement for a Future Combat Air System programme.
