Applied Research Associates will help the U.S. Air Force study and create modern detection technologies under a potential $49.6 million contract for the Advanced Laboratories for Analysis of Sensors program.
The company will support research and development of electro-optical, multispectral and radio frequency systems, sensors, and test methods and approaches, the Defense Department said Thursday.
The contract includes cost-plus-fixed-fee task orders and work is scheduled to be done at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base by July 18, 2024.
The Air Force Research Laboratory will appropriate $750,000 fiscal 2018 R&D funds for the first task order.
