US Air Force Orders New $24Mil Research Into Expanded Use of Radio Frequencies

The US Air Force has awarded KeyW Corporation an almost $24-million contract for research to investigate expanding the applications of radio frequency technology, the Department of Defense said in a press release.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Defense Department explained the contract provides for research and development of radio frequency exploitation technology with innovative algorithmic approaches for dynamic and flexible sensing, capable of leveraging all available information to maximize sensing and exploitation performance.

"The KeyW Corp., Hanover, Maryland, has been awarded a $23,924,180 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the Research to Advance Comprehensive Exploitation of Radio Frequency (RF) Research and Development (R&D) program," the release stated on Tuesday.

The research will address issues of concurrent detection, tracking, imaging, and identification of targets within contested and challenging environments with singular and distributed sensing architectures, the Defense Department pointed out.

Work on the project will be supervised by the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the US state of Ohio, the Defense Department added.
