PAR Government Systems Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation announced on September 8 the awarding of a $3.0M research and development contract with the U.S. Air Force.
Under this three-and-a-half-year Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Information Directorate contract involving “Innovative Multi-Mission Agile Radio Frequency Capability (iMARC)”, PAR Government will provide affordable technologies for multi-mission waveforms, assured wireless communications systems, network connectivity, and wireless cyber-security to facilitate the Joint Aerial Layer Network (JALN) implementation strategies from permissive to highly contested domains.
The iMARC project will provide an affordable, rapid waveform development ecosystem of advanced multi-mission Software Defined Radio frequency (SDRF) hardware, software, waveform library components, and tools for rapidly prototyping and demonstrating new waveform capabilities and advanced techniques. The contract work will be performed by PAR Government’s Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Sector.
“We are pleased that AFRL has selected PAR Government to support the iMARC program,” commented Matt Cicchinelli, president of PAR Government. “Under this effort, we will develop innovative information transmission and reception technologies that can enhance warfighting utility, survivability and mission assurance.”
