Yesterday, SRA International announced a $19 million contract it has been awarded by the U.S. Air Force Deputy Chief Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance. The contract obligates SRA to develop a one-stop source that will provide planning, programming, and operational employment of Air Force reconnaissance equipment. The same goes for its Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS), the Air Force’s weapon system that provides critical combat or other operational activity decision-making information to the Joint Task Force.
Under the contract, which could run for a period of three years, SRA is to design interfaces which will allow direct user input to the enterprise architecture database, as well as models that perform independent analysis and experimentation while maintaining data integrity.
SRA VP Anna Hogan said the company’s vast experience with the DCGS will make its offerings efficient and useful.
“With over a decade of DCGS modeling and simulation experience, SRA’s web-enabled system will provide quick analysis of various reconnaissance data flows, communications capacities, ground crew composition and other key components to the Air Force, ” she said.
