Black Sage Technologies has announced it has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for counter-UAS systems from the US Air Force. The contract has a value of up to USD900 million over a five-year period with options to extend up to ten years.
According to a company press release:
“The award was based on Black Sage’s past performance, which has rapidly developed and demonstrated layered, multi-sensor solutions in detecting, identifying, tracking, deterring, and defeating drones with its DefenseOS command and control software. DefenseOS enables tailored CUAS solutions for any environment and is interoperable with the Army’s Forward Area Air Defense Command and Control (FAADC2) and other military and commercial standards.
“Black Sage was recently recommended for use by the Joint Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System Office (JCO) after demonstrating the rapid integration of High-Energy Laser Weapon Systems (HELWS), High Powered Microwave (HPM), 30mm chain guns, Puma Unmanned Aircraft, and RF Sense and Defeat capabilities developed by the Air Force with a meshed CUAS system distributed to defend a large forward operating base (FOB).
Black Sage Technologies, acquired by Acorn Growth Companies in 2019, is a developer of C-UAS solutions that identify, classify, track, and defeat UAS threats for military, government, law enforcement, and civil applications.
