Defense industry Airborne Reconnaissance Low-Enhanced
The ARL-E is a manned multi-INT airborne platform that provides a persistent capability to detect, locate, classify/identify and track surface targets in day/night, near-all-weather conditions, with a high degree of timeliness and accuracy.
The first task order under the IDIQ will provide the System of Systems (SoS) integration of an extensible Mission Equipment Payload (MEP), including the modification of Bombardier DHC-8 aircraft.
Through the duration of the IDIQ task order contract, Leidos, with its partner Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) and teammates Argon ST (a Boeing Company), L-3 ComCept, and Dynamic Aviation, will provide low-cost, high-maturity solutions using a flexible open architecture that enables integration of future capabilities, promotes growth, and maximizes the Army's investments. ■
