Ultra Electronics to Develop Radar Software Solutions for the US Navy

Ultra Electronics, a pioneer in advanced tactical radio communications systems for defense, security, and public safety applications, has been awarded a $45 Million contract for engineering and technical services for the design, development, testing, integration, technology insertion/refreshment and system support of the AN/BPS radar software management system.

The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value to over $100 Million, and be completed by May 2026. Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate $1.7M at the time of award which will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

With the continued increase in global maritime traffic, the demand for safe surfaced navigation of the U.S.’s Submarine Fleet has never been greater. Ultra’s role to continue to provide new and improved radar processing and display capabilities for the Navy’s submarine forces will bring about modern navigational displays, improved situational awareness to the operators, and safety to the fleet.
