Saber Astronautics, EOS win access to USAF’s JADC2 work

The USAF has issued an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract worth up to AUD$950 million for 27 companies to compete for work on the Pentagon’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) program for multi-domain networking.

The recipients include two companies with Australian parents: Electro Optic Systems subsidiary EOS Defense Systems USA (EOSDS USA) and Saber Astronautics have been selected by the U.S. Air Force to compete for task orders alongside 25 other companies under a contract to support the USAF’s Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). EOSDS USA will compete under a $950 million ceiling over a three-year period (with five optional years) for the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capabilities across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development.

This program is the Air Force’s contribution to the US Department of Defense’s JADC2, which focuses on modernizing DoD decision-making processes for combat operations. This contract is part of a multiple award effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains to include air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum.

EOSDS USA was selected to compete in the Effects Integration category for its full spectrum C-UAS capabilities. The award builds upon EOS’ proven track record of success in the development, installation and integration of networked systems and weapon systems including directional radio frequency (RF) jammers, kinetic energy solutions, various missile systems and directed energy platforms.

The DoD added: ‘These contracts provide awardees the opportunity to compete for efforts that support the development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.’
