ALBUQUERQUE, NM – BlueHalo was awarded a $5.87M contract with Air Force Research Laboratory’s Small Satellite Branch (AFRL/RVEN) for the Phased Arrays for Ground Segment SATCOM (PASS) Applications solution.  The 36-month contract will support the development and demonstration of two key technologies: The Wide Area Scanning Parabolic (WASP) and a small form-factor Multi-Band, Deployable Ground Terminal Enabling Resilient Communications (BADGER) phased array.

“BlueHalo is excited for this opportunity to demonstrate Multi-band Software Defined Antenna [MSDA] technology for Telemetry, Tracking, and Commanding [TT&C] operations,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, BlueHalo CEO.  “This demonstration is a perfect example of what inspired engineering means at BlueHalo, doing things that have never been done before.”

BlueHalo’s Advanced Radio Frequency Systems (ARFS) group is dedicated to developing next-generation digital beamformed phased arrays for the U.S. warfighter and providing novel solutions enabling multi-band, multi-mission capabilities in the telemetry, electronic warfare, and communication defense markets leveraging commercially available technology.  As a core area of technological focus and investment at BlueHalo, the ARFS group is rapidly expanding capabilities based on its robust internal research and development programs and extensive experience developing and fielding RF systems for Department of Defense (DoD) customers.
