Charles River Analytics Announces Contract to Improve US Air Force’s Command and Control Capabilities

Team Seeks to Improve Technology for Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR)

Charles River Analytics, a developer of intelligent systems solutions, announces a contract to increase technological capabilities of the US Air Force in Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). The US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) awarded the three-year contract, valued at $18.5 million, to a team led by MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB).

As part of the Software, Networks, Information, Modeling and Simulation (SNIM) technical area task (TAT), Charles River will provide research, analysis, development, prototyping, and experimentation to transition and sustain future systems for the Air Force and Joint C4ISR communities. These tasks include information assurance, software data and analysis, modeling and simulation, and knowledge management and information sharing. The team will also address Command and Control (C2) requirements in areas critical to national security by collaborating with AFLCMC personnel.

“We’re excited to be part of this program,” said Brad Rosenberg, Senior Scientist of Charles River’s Decision Management Systems Division. “Charles River has grown to be able to uniquely satisfy the Air Force’s need for innovative C4ISR capabilities, especially for AFLCMC’s mission. Supporting this program naturally extends from our prototyping of ISR collection management capabilities, through our support for command and control applications and information services development for the future air operations center weapon system (AOC WS), and beyond. This is a great opportunity for us to continue to bring our technology to solve warfighter needs.”

“The Air Force’s AOC modernization program is working to provide more efficient and effective tools to our Warfighters,” said Dr. Scott Neal Reilly, Vice President, Decision Management Systems. “We are very proud to be such an early contributor to this important program.”

This effort is sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center.
