BAE to Develop DARPA Helicopter Radio, Sensor Systems

BAE Systems won a $34 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency contract to develop helicopter radio and sensor systems, the company announced Wednesday.

The company will lead a research team that will develop sensor systems for helicopters to use in environments with reduced visibility.

Dave Logan, a vice president and general manager, said many helicopter-related casualties occur in degraded visual environments.

Logan added the new system will be based off of silicon-based array technology.

The system will include measures for avoiding cables, collision and obstacles resulting from weather conditions and terrain.

The system will also have additional modes for targeting, weapon guidance and high bandwidth data communications modes.

The company also won a potential $698 million U.S. Navy contract on Wednesday for communications and electronics services.
