IAI Awarded U.S. Air Force Contract to Develop an Airborne Infrared Signature and Atmospheric Measurement System

ROCKVILLE, Md.—September 30, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to develop an airborne infrared signature and atmospheric measurement system for testing and evaluation of infrared search and track sensors.

In this contract, IAI will measure dynamic airborne aircraft infrared signatures in the midwave and longwave infrared bands as well as the atmospherics from near the sensor to the target. The target IR signature will be quantified as a function of target airspeed, throttle position, afterburner, skin condition, target aspect, treatments, and more.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Air Force to support measurement of aircraft infrared signatures,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI specializes in developing advanced RF systems for military, transportation, and medical applications. IAI’s technologies are used in phased array radars, portable radios, and electronic warfare systems. IAI creates RF systems from the hardware and physical layers, to waveform processing algorithms, through networking protocols. IAI’s high-performance software-defined radios are designed for the most advanced applications including cooperative communications and cognitive radio.
