Lockheed Martin Corp., Littleton, Colo., and Northrop Grumman Space Mission Systems Corp., Redondo Beach, Calif., are being awarded a $220,000,000 cost-plus fixed-fee contract to provide for the Space Based Radar (SBR) Concept Development effort. The SBR program will provide global persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance through delivery of Surface Moving Target Indication, Synthetic Aperture Radar imaging, High Resolution Terrain information, and derived products for use by DOD and intelligence community users.

These architectures will be reviewed by the government at an Alternate System Review (ASR). After ASR, each contractor will select a single solution set for further development into a SBR system design. This design/development work will culminate in a system design review (SDR) of both designs. SBR will be followed by a source selection for a follow-on contract to design, develop, test, produce, and deploy Increment One of the SBR system. At this time, $30,500,000 has been obligated to both contractors. This work will be complete by April 2006. Solicitation began January 2004.
