AFRL contracts look to next-generation weapons systems
DAYTON, Ohio. National-security firm MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB) is partnering with Engility Corporation on a single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract supporting the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Munitions Directorate.
The partnership will provide research and development for the Kinetic Kill Hardware-in-the-Loop (KHILS) Simulation Technology for Advanced Research (KSTAR) program, which was established to help the government assess concepts for high-end, next-generation weapon systems.
Engineering experts from MacB’s Mission Systems Group (MSG) will work with Engility to develop multispectral and other advanced modeling capabilities, radar signal processing, integrated projector and scene generation technologies, and R&D of virtual simulation environments. In addition, senior engineers from MacB will provide the necessary requirements and design support for concept seeker hardware and play a major role in performing seeker phenomenology research and evaluation.
Under the terms of the contract, the work will be performed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida over a five-year period.
