Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co., Sunnyvale, Calif. and Northrop Grumman, Los Angeles, Calif., are being awarded a $16,000,000 contract modification for the following: 1) provide capability to assign any single uplink transmission security (TRANSEC) key to any beam; 2) provide capability to blank 2nd key contiguous bandwidth within any one permute group in multiples of wideband channels for every hope of the date frame. The blanking timing error shall be factory selectable and upload able from mission control segment (MCS); 3) allow extra high data rate users to acquire high gain earth coverage, reposition medium resolution coverage area (beam shared and full-time) and high-resolution coverage area beams without using super high gain earth coverage (SHGEC) uplink resources; 4) provide capability for all users to acquire and communicate in the same coverage requests, and the SHGEC which is only used for communications and time tracking terminals acquiring or communicating in any particular beam will do so using only one uplink TRANSEC key that is currently configured to that beam; 5) allow for permute group 0 group to support wideband channels. Locations of performance are: Lockheed Martin, Sunnyvale Calif. and Northrop Grumman, Los Angeles Calif. No funds have been obligated. This work will be complete September 2008. The Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Los Angeles, Calif., is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0002, P00043).
Raytheon Systems Co., El Segundo, Calif., is being awarded a $10,000,000 (maximum) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for embedded information system technology support which will develop, demonstrate, and transition embedded information system technologies to support information exchange between aerospace and command and control systems within the emerging Department of Defense command and control enterprise. The Program Research & Development Announcement was divided into two thrust areas, and this award to Raytheon is the singular award under thrust area 2. The Air Force can issue delivery orders totaling up to the maximum amount indicated above, though actual requirements may necessitate less than the amount above. At this time, $1,80,000 of the funds has been obligated. Further funds will be obligated as individual delivery orders are issued. This work will be complete July 2011. Solicitations began March 2002 and negotiations were complete July 2003.

Veridian Engineering, Inc., Buffalo N.Y., is being awarded a $7,000,000 (ceiling value) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide for high-confidence detection, orientation, and recognition. The objective of this effort is to develop a disciplined, validated and efficient capability to exercise, analyze and evaluate system-of-systems solutions to the problem of detecting, identifying, and maintaining target identification in realistic battlefield conditions (i.e. the continuous identification problem). Top-level objectives associated with the continuous identification problem include robust and predictable target recognition across a variety of operating conditions, uninterrupted tracking of dynamic targets, synergistic combination and management of a large array of sensory assets, and precise orientation and location of targets. This effort will demonstrate an integrated system performance capability by engineering, integrating, evaluation, and demonstrating advanced automatic target recognition/cueing target tracking in registration and sensor fusion resource management technologies. The Air Force can issues delivery orders totaling up to the maximum amount indicated above, though actual requirements may necessitate less than the amount above. Locations of performance are Veridian Engineering, Dayton Ohio and Veridian Engineering Inc., Buffalo, N.Y. At this time, $2,397,962 of the funds has been obligated.
