The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has awarded a new Distributed Radio Frequency Sensing (DRS) contract to Altamira Technologies for next-generation radio frequency (RF) sensing technologies.
Valued at $24.6m, the new cost-plus-fixed-fee contract will continue for a period of five years and will support the development of new RF sensing technologies through advanced research and development (R&D) of RF systems and sub-systems.
The latest advanced RF sensing technologies will be developed by applying DRS to contested and congested spectrum environments.
Altamira Technologies president Jonathan Moneymaker said: “Our on-going work with AFRL and recognised success with DSAM technologies solidifies Altamira’s position as a leader in delivering advanced RF sensing solutions.
“With this award, Altamira strengthens our partnership with one of our key customers as we continue to perform the cutting-edge R&D needed to operate in future spectrum environments.”
Work on the DRS project is built on Altamira Technologies’s internal and customer-funded RF R&D experience.
