Logos Technologies Lands Navy UAV Sensor Research Contract

RQ-21A BlackjackLogos Technologies has won a $32.8 million contract to perform research on compact sensor platforms for the U.S. Navy to use on at least three types of unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Defense Department said Thursday the sensors could be integrated with Tigershark,  RQ-8 Firescout and RQ-21 Blackjack UAVs for use in hyperspectral imaging and wide area aerial surveillance missions of the Air Force and Navy.

The Naval Air Warfare Center’s aircraft division awarded the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract through competitive procurement and the company will receive $1, 710, 000 in fiscal year 2015 research, test, assessment and development funds from the Air Force at the time of award.

A majority of the work will occur in Fairfax, Virginia with the rest in Arizona, North Carolina, Texas, California and Massachusetts through June 2018.
