CLIFTON, N.J., July 11 (UPI) -- SAIC has tapped ITT Exelis to provide engineering support for the U.S. military's Adaptive Radar Countermeasures program.

The program is administered by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Agency to enable airborne electronic warfare systems to detect and counter new and evolving digital radar waveforms.

"With radio frequency threats evolving, we need a capability that will anticipate and meet these threats as they emerge," said Joe Rambala, vice president and general manager of the Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems business. "SAIC and Exelis are teaming to ensure our warfighters can perform their missions safely and securely."

The contract from Science Applications International Corporation is for five years and carries of value of as much as $15.6 million if all options are exercised.

DARPA's ARC program consists of two major elements. The first is the SAIC-led development of new processing techniques and algorithms in a software environment. The second is the Exelis-managed implementation of these techniques with a prototype module within a target system.
