Counter-UAS system for U.S. Army garners $426 million contract for SRCNews
July 27, 2020
CICERO, N.Y. Technology and engineering firm SRC has won a contract from the U.S. Army -- worth up to $426 million over the next five years -- to supply the Army with mobile systems that use radar, cameras, jamming technology, and other sensors to detect, track, identify, and defeat hostile unmanned aerial systems (UASs) on the battlefield..
The Army's Expeditionary-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System (E-LIDS) effort is aimed at using counter-UAS systems to shield U.S. and allied expeditionary forces from UAS-based improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and from more sophisticated enemy use of aerial threats to attack military forces or civilian targets.
The counter-UAS materials will be built at SRC’s manufacturing arm, SRCTec, in North Syracuse, New York.
