Air Force seeks commercial ground-based radar options

By Michael Marrow / April 14, 2022 at 4:55 PM

Market research is currently underway for ground-based radar systems that can support the Air Force’s Intrusion Detection System.

According to a request for information notice posted today, the Air Force is searching for commercial off-the-shelf, non-developmental items or near NDI for ground-based radar systems that can detect, identify and track targets such as humans and vehicles up to 20 kilometers away.

The radar must be able to continuously transmit the position of a target using encrypted sensor and communications data and be compatible with other command and control nodes of a base defense operations center.

Responses to the RFI are due April 29.
