American tech firm CAES has been awarded a US Army contract to supply a precision strike sensor core for the service’s Long-Range Precision Fires capability.

Under the agreement, the Colorado-based company will deliver a state-of-the-art transceiver that enables assured positioning, navigation, and timing.

The programmable tech will facilitate radio frequency guidance and control, as well as in-flight data link communications to help ensure first-strike success.

According to CAES chief executive Mike Kahn, the firm’s pioneering precision strike sensor core will elevate the performance and accuracy of the US Army’s Long-Range Precision Fires capability.

“We are excited to collaborate with our partners to support the Army as it develops new technologies to address the demands of future missions,” he said.

The company did not disclose the contract’s total value.

Collaborative Project

CAES said the development of precision strike sensors for the US Army will include contributions from significant partners in the defense and technology industry.

Oklahoma State University and EngeniusMicro in Alabama will provide modeling and simulation support.

Texas-based Berry Aviation will be responsible for supporting concept development.

Additionally, CAES will tap the services of the new Fires Innovation Science and Technology Accelerator in Oklahoma to assist in the advancement of this precision strike technology.

Modernizing the US Army’s Long-Range Precision Fires capability is one of the country’s top priorities.
