The Army is seeking multidomain equipment support for the MQ-1C Gray Eagle Unmanned Aircraft System.
A Jan. 2 request for information states the Army is looking for payload systems and sensors to be integrated into the UAS “to penetrate defense-in-depth anti-access and area denial environments and sense, identify and geolocate enemy threat radar as well a communications systems that are encompassed in the Air Defense Systems.”
The service is looking for multidomain hardware and software systems with a technology readiness level of six or greater to detect and share information on enemy threats, such as radar warning receivers/electronic support measures, electronic intelligence payload systems and synthetic aperture radar/moving target indicator systems.
The notice also says the integration of MDO support equipment onto the MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAS operating above 20,000 feet is a near-term demonstration goal for the service.
Responses are due Jan. 27.
