The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has announced a $47.8 million program to improve radar detection and tracking capabilities. The Contested Environment Radio Frequency Exploitation and Research (CERFER) program will kick off with a solicitation in late September or October.

AFRL will search for novel hardware, software and algorithmic approaches to allow agile and flexible sensing. All available methods will be exploited, including spatial diversity, waveform diversity, transmit-and-receive adaptivity and signals of opportunity, as well as exploiting active and passive signals in a single or distributed architecture.

“The goal is to address problems of concurrent detection, tracking, imaging, and classification/identification of targets within contested and challenging environments with single and distributed sensing architectures,” according to AFRL, which noted that CERFER will require advances in sensor subsystems.
