The US Navy has awarded an $800m indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to EOIR Technologies to continue supports its electromagnetic manoeuvre warfare command and control (EMC2) project.

With a five year base performance period, the contract has a two-year option with an additional ceiling of $100m.

As one of the prime contractors, EOIR will support the development of hardware and software intensive systems, which will allow monitoring of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum across a wide range of frequencies.

"EOIR is excited to continue our support of the US Navy's Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare efforts."

The systems will also provide the capability to reallocate functions to the best frequencies and resources to respond to changes in the electromagnetic environment and warfighter requirements.

EOIR electromagnetic warfare vice-president Mark Coleman said: "EOIR is excited to continue our support of the US Navy's Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare efforts.

"EMC2 is a significant win for us. We look forward to helping develop and deploy systems that will allow our military to characterise, control, and dominate the spectrum.”

The company will also support the study, design, fabrication, integration, and test and evaluation (T&E) for the development, and the demonstration of a set of prototypes and their component subsystems.

The US Office of Naval Research (ONR) will release the task orders through its Future Naval Capabilities (FNC) programme, which researches advanced technology for future navy radio frequency (RF) system requirements.
