Boeing North American Inc., Rocketdyne Division, Canoga Park, Calif., is being awarded a $35,000,000 increment as part of a $43,900,000 cost plus incentive fee completion letter contract. The need for an early anti-satellite (ASAT) capability was defined as a result of the growing spread of space based photography which led to a concern that hostile satellite reconnaissance could be used against the United States and allied military forces in the future. The U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command has been developing, demonstrating, and integrating the advanced technologies needed for this type of capability. These technologies have been integrated into a prototype kill vehicle and weapon control subsystem for early demonstration of an ASAT capability under a prior contract. This follow-on effort will develop an operational weapon control subsystem; and define/integrate subsystem technologies to demonstrate hit-to-kill performance, with debris mitigation, against hostile satellites. The option would add two flight test demonstrations of the system with subsequent data collection and reduction after each test. Work will be performed in Canoga Park, Calif. (57%); Richardson, Texas (8%); San Pedro, Calif. (4.5%); and other various small subcontractors (30.5%)., and is expected to be completed by Aug. 22, 1998.
