Perspecta Labs has been awarded a three-year, $6.2 million prime contract to develop a spectrum access manager for the Department of Defense (DoD) under the National Spectrum Consortium's Spectrum Base Agreement, Perspecta reported on Wednesday.
"Perspecta Labs will leverage its leading expertise in RF spectrum solutions to design, develop, integrate and demonstrate a spectrum access management and planning tool that delivers revolutionary advances in the characterization and management of RF spectrum and the planning and scheduling of test events," said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs.
Perspecta Labs will develop a spectrum access manager that will enable DoD test ranges to better understand and characterize the radio frequency (RF) spectrum environment. Perspecta’s support will also allow the department to quantify the performance of test systems based on the mission profile and improve efficiency in the scheduling and allocation of RF spectrum.
RF spectrum supports DoD testing of every type of weapon system and military platform. “DoD test ranges face a significant spectrum shortfall as there is an increasing demand to support the testing of complex emerging systems, but less dedicated spectrum available,” added Mouchtaris.
In addition, Perspecta Labs spectrum access manager will provide DoD test ranges with the capability to deconflict spectrum assignments for testing, provide actionable information regarding telemetry link performance, implement automated sharing techniques and provide visualization of spectrum assignments and telemetry link performance.
Perspecta Labs will perform new design and development activities, as well as integrate software and system prototypes. The company’s efforts will deliver a complete solution for spectrum situational awareness and efficient allocation, in addition to simplifying planning, scheduling and conducting tests.
