SRC, Inc., has been awarded a $950,000,000 ceiling Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract for the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development in order to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).

This contract is part of a multiple award multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.

“SRC’s state-of-the-art secure processing, spectrum warfare, data analytics and integrated multi-domain sensor capabilities will be key to helping the Air Force sense and assess the environment in real-time,” said Kevin Hair, President and CEO of SRC, Inc.

“We are excited to further our support of the Air Force as we work to ensure our warfighters’ ability to maintain a decision advantage over their adversaries,” he added.

In addition to this new contract, SRC continues to work with the Air Force to develop and enhance the delivery of intelligence mission data, protect warfighters with counter-UAS technology, and develop leading edge technologies for next generation unmanned aerial systems.

SRC Inc. also announced it has won a $90 million contract to support the U.S. Air Force’s Counter-small Unmanned Aerial System (C-sUAS) efforts.

Under the Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract, which is not to exceed the $90 million ceiling, the Air Force will purchase SRC’s C-sUAS and related components. SRC will also provide upgrades, sustainment, installation support, and design and analysis support. Work on the sole-source acquisition is expected to be completed in August 2028.

SRC will also provide sustainment for its products within the Multi-Environmental Domain Unmanned Systems Application. MEDUSA is a command-and-control system that ties together multiple C-sUAS and related components to detect and take down small drones. The comprehensive MEDUSA program was first installed at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to Capt. Brigitte Palacios, 380th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron operations section officer.

“The C-sUAS mission is pretty unique because it’s still pretty new to the Air Force overall,” Palacios said in a March statement. “Medusa [sic] is a system of advanced technologies used to defeat small drones. The goal is to design a model system that can be rapidly deployable to areas with a significant drone threat to military personnel or resources. ADAB is the test base for this capacity, and will continue to develop the blueprint for C-sUAS operations in the future.”

SRC is the company behind the Fixed Site-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System, one of eight interim C-sUAS approved by the U.S. Army’s Joint C-sUAS Office for  investment and deployment across the armed services. MEDUSA was also approved by the office for use across the joint force. And on July 23, the Army awarded the company a$426 million contract for the development, production, deployment and support of FS-LIDS.

SRC, Inc., a not-for-profit research and development company, combines information, science, technology and ingenuity to solve “impossible” problems in the areas of defense, environment and intelligence.

Across a family of companies, SRC applies bright minds, fresh thinking and relentless determination to deliver innovative products and services that are redefining possible® for the challenges faced by America and its allies.

Since 1957, SRC’s commitment to the customer and the best solution – not the bottom line – has remained a core value that guides its efforts. This passion for quality carries through to the technologies the company invents and manufactures, the laboratories and facilities it builds, the people they hire, and communities where they work. Today, more than 1,600 engineers, scientists and professionals work together at SRC to protect people, the environment and our way of life.
