FAIRFAX, US: Argon ST, Inc., a systems engineering, development and services company providing full-service C5ISR (command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) systems and services to a wide range of defense and intelligence customers, announced that it was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Acquisition Center in Fort Monmouth, NJ to provide platform enabler development.


The approximately $17 million effort calls for Argon to perform advanced development services in airborne signals intelligence. Platform enablers are part of CECOM’s mission to develop, and transition to the field, information technologies and integrated systems in order to secure battlespace dominance for America's warfighters. Through the application of platform enablers, platforms can easily and affordably be upgraded, ensuring continuing data collection and transmission even as threat technologies evolve.

“The work on this project will help to ensure that warfighters have uninterrupted access to advanced airborne SIGINT technology,” commented Kerry Rowe, President and Chief Operating Officer, Argon ST. “Argon’s Lighthouse/Prism product line model is ideal for what the U.S. Army is striving for with platform enablers. Through the use of commercial off-the-shelf based products, reusable software, and repeatable processes, we are able to effectively and efficiently bring new capabilities to market as well as upgrade those already in theatre in a streamlined and efficient manner.”
