Woolpert Incorporated, Dayton, Ohio, was recently awarded a nearly $15 million contract to provide for the investigation of capability enhancements, including higher-flying platforms, improved imagery resolution and accuracy, improved processing and sensor payloads for improved collection rates. Work is to be performed in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, and in Afghanistan. The U.S. Army Geospatial Center, Contracting Office, Alexandria, is the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Orlando, Florida, recently received a more than $48 million contract to provide logistical support for the AH-64 Apache modernized and legacy target acquisition designation sight assembly and pilot night vision sensor assembly system. This includes repair and maintenance of line replaceable units and line replaceable modules to support the Apache's sensors flying hours program. The U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command Contracting Center, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
L-3 Communications Corporation, Salt Lake City, Utah, was recently awarded an $8 million contract to provide for radio frequency B-kit communications hardware to support the Kiowa Warrior OH-58D program. The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aviation and Missile Command Contracting Center, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
L-3 Communications System West, Salt Lake City, Utah, was recently awarded a nearly $32 million contract to provide for 2,780 remote operational video enhanced receiver 6 antenna kits. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors, Owego, New York, is being awarded a $35 million delivery order against a previously issued basic ordering agreement for non-recurring efforts in support of the MH-60R situational awareness technology insertion pre-engineering, manufacturing and development.

Alion Science and Technology has recently been awarded a $1 million contract to lead a modeling and simulation research effort that could help enhance the field of prosthetic limbs for wounded soldiers. The 18-month, U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity will explore affordable and improved approaches in bringing robotic control technology to the field of prosthetic limbs. Alion will develop a protocol and modeling tool for robotic, upper limb prosthetics that may lead to the development of an affordable, lightweight, prosthetic device that is more functional to the amputee, more power-efficient and has an extended battery life. The program is designed to augment and accelerate the development of implantable electronic sensors and the development and application of virtual prototyping simulation models, which will ultimately help the amputee better control the prosthetic. Since 2003, 1,145 soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan have had a limb amputated.
