US Air Force Selects EOS for Combat Management System Contract

Electro Optic Systems subsidiary EOS Defense Systems USA (EOSDS USA) has been selected by the US Air Force to compete for task orders alongside several other companies under an indefinite delivery contract, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) to support its Advanced Combat Management System (ABMS).

EOSDS USA will compete under a cap of $950 million over a three-year period (with five optional years) for the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capabilities across platforms and domains, leveraging the design of open systems, software development and modern algorithms.

This program is the Air Force’s contribution to the Department of Defense (DoD) Inter-Domain Command and Control Architecture (JADC2), which focuses on modernizing DoD decision-making processes for combat operations. This contract is part of a multi-pronged effort to ensure systems develop and operate as a unified force across all domains, including air, land, sea, space, cyber and the electromagnetic spectrum.

“EOS Defense Systems USA is very pleased to have the opportunity to support this important program for the US Air Force and the DoD,” said the retired brigadier. General Phil Coker, CEO of EOSDS USA, said. “This contract provides our team with the opportunity to contribute in a measurable way to the readiness of our nation and our allies, and we are honored that the Air Force has chosen EOS for this important work.

EOSDS USA was selected to compete in the Effects Integration category for its full-spectrum C-UAS capabilities. The award builds on EOS’ history in the development, installation and integration of networked systems and weapon systems, including directional radio frequency (RF) jammers, kinetic energy solutions , various missile systems and directed energy platforms.
