Raytheon Co., McKinney, Texas, is being awarded an $8,977,748 modification to previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00164-12-G-JQ66) for common sensor payload (CSP) AN/AAS-53 high definition retrofits. CSP AN/AAS-53 high definition retrofits, while functioning on manned or unmanned aircraft, provide battlefield commanders with a day/night imaging sensor and laser designator for reconnaissance, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and target designation. The payload must operate day and night, detect and recognize operationally-meaningful targets at survivable standoff ranges, determine range-to-target, auto track and designate targets for precision-guided standoff weapons, provide target-location coordinates, and display continuous high-resolution imagery to the battlefield commander. The ability to provide such a capability to the supported commander will greatly increase battlefield effectiveness. The CSP high definition will have adequate on-board processing to perform auto tracking, designation, and to support the transmission of near-real-time motion imagery. Work will be performed in McKinney, Texas, and is expected to be completed by March 2016. Fiscal 2013 aircraft procurement, Army in the amount of $8,977,748 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Ind., is the contracting activity.
