Electro Optic Systems subsidiary EOS Defense Systems USA (EOSDS USA) has been selected by the US Air Force as one of a group of companies allowed to compete for US$950 million worth of defence department contracts.
The company will compete over a three year peripd, with a further five optional years, under an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the development of the USAF Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS).
EOSDS USA was selected to compete in the Effects Integration category for its counter unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) capabilities.
EOS C-UAS products include directional radio frequency (RF) jammers, kinetic energy solutions such as remote weapons stations, missile systems and directed energy or laser weapons.
EOSDS USA will work on the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capabilities across multiple platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development.
The program is the US Air Force’s contribution to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint All Domain Command and Control Architecture (JADC2), which focuses on modernising DoD decision-making processes for combat operations.
Systems developed will allow United States forces to operate as a unified force across air, land, sea, space, cyber, and the electromagnetic spectrum.
CEO of EOSDS USA retired Brig. Gen. Phil Coker said: “EOS Defense Systems USA is very pleased to have the opportunity to support this important program for the US Air Force and DoD.
“This contract offers our team a potential to measurably contribute to the readiness of our country and our allies, and we are honoured that the Air Force has selected EOS for this important work.”
