The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) (Directed Energy Directorate (RD), High Power Electromagnetics (HPEM) Division (RDH), Kirtland AFB New Mexico, the US Air Force’s Center of Excellence for research in HPEM technology) is seeking industry support for its MJÖLNIR programme.
The objective of MJÖLNIR is to procure a single, near-production representative, cost-effective counter-unmanned aerial system (cUAS) that is suited to operational environments and performs at levels equal to or greater than AFRL’s existing Tactical High-Power Microwave Operational Responder (THOR) cUAS prototype. This prototype development intends to capitalize on earlier high-power microwave (HPM) systems and enable future transition to a program of record.
Access to MJÖNLIR Bidder’s Library may be requested and approved/provided by the Government.
Tender number: FA945121S0001Call0006
Deadline: 13 September 2021
