Dynetics to Develop Medium-Range Radar Prototypes Under MARCORSYSCOM Contract
The U.S. Marine Corps System Command has awarded Leidos a $32 million contract for defense radar systems development.
Leidos, through its Dynetics subsidiary, will develop four Medium Range Air Defense Radar prototypes within two years. Dynetics will use experiences learned from the Marine Expeditionary Long Range Persistent Sensor contract awarded in June. MELPS is a system that provides a 360-degree field of view through a combination of digital antennas and receivers and signal processing techniques.
Work will be performed in Huntsville, Alabama, and Arlington, Virginia. The first set of radars is expected to be delivered in 2025, Leidos said.
Dynetics has a record of supporting technology developments across the U.S. military.
In September, Dynetics received a $124.7 million U.S. Army contract for military exercise support. The company was tasked to support the Army’s missile and space program executive office and assess if soldiers and weapons systems can operate amid cyber electromagnetic activities.
In October 2022, the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division awarded Leidos a contract for the Multiservice Advanced Capability Hypersonics Testbed. MACH-TB is designed as a centralized platform the Navy could use for hypersonic weapons development.
