Raytheon Supporting USAF DCGS-DSFS SIGINT Programme

$175 Million Five-Year Contract

Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) will provide SIGINT field services for the US Air Force’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS), which collects, processes and analyses intelligence.

RI&S will support seven different intelligence applications the Air Force uses to collect and correlate data under the new programme – DCGS-Signals Intelligence Field Support (DSFS). The five-year contract, valued up to $175 million (€145 million), will combine information from airborne, ground and other systems.

Gone are the days of planning daily sustainment operations site-by-site. Now DSFS provides an enterprise support structure for all sustainment operations, optimizing mission coverage with fewer field engineers,” explained David Appel, VP, Defense and Civil Solutions. “We’re able to help ensure the highest level of operational availability for the system, all while reducing costs. With the open architecture baseline being declared fully mission capable, we anticipate greater improvement in analysts’ efficiency and the ability to manage the availability of the system for all sites.”

Under the contract, RI&S will leverage its mission domain knowledge to provide high mission availability in support of end-to-end operations – from creating a mission plan for an airborne sensor to receiving data, processing that data, and then either producing a report, storing it or enhancing it by fusing it with other data.

The efficient and rapid handling of data – from collection through analysis to dissemination – is a critical component of the ability to abbreviate the sensor-to-shooter loop. (Photo: USAF)
