northrop-Grumman_BLUENorthrop Grumman has received a potential $7.8 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop new technology platforms for a program that seeks to facilitate radio and radar communications in contested radiofrequency environments.

DARPA said in a FedBizOpps notice posted Friday the contract awarded through the Signal Processing at RF program has a base amount of $2.9 million and approximately $4.9 million in contract options.

The SPAR program seeks to design, build and demonstrate RF signal processing systems that work to mitigate self-generated and external-based interfering signals as well as eliminate in-band interferers to facilitate the transmission of RF signals of interest to in-receiver digital platforms.

“The technologies developed under the SPAR program must achieve not only the desired levels of signal isolation but also the low noise and high linearity required of components operating directly at the RF front end,“ DARPA added.
