Hanover cyber security firm KEYW Corp. recently received new federal contracts to develop target recognition and radar technologies for the Air Force.
The Air Force chose KEYW as one of five awardees to develop and test new automated target recognition (ATR) algorithms for the Air Force Research Laboratory's Compact ATR Sustainable Environment (CASE) Program. CASE is a seven-year, indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract valued at $24 million, according to a Sept. 23 news release.
KEYW is partnering with businesses and universities to develop and deploy algorithms that convert large amounts of sensor data into actionable intelligence.
The Air Force also extended KEYW's deal to develop new image compression techniques for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). This additional work extends the current contract by 34 months and is worth $4 million.
