Radiance has been awarded the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) contract to support the instrumentation and architecture for the SMDC Tech Center’s Directed Energy Systems Integration Lab (DESIL). This is a 5-year, $49M single-award contract to continue and further our support of SMDC and their mission to provide Directed Energy (DE) capabilities that support the design, development, testing, and analysis of high energy laser technologies and systems.

Radiance provides subject matter expertise to DE systems, based on our many years supporting the SMDC with high energy laser design, development, modeling and simulation, integration, test, lethality, and analysis. This effort will focus on providing modeling and simulation, instrumentation design and development, system/ subsystem/ component testing and analysis, and broad technical expertise to help the government and system vendors understand laser system performance.

We would like to thank Chris Wright who led the overall proposal effort, Mike Marcel who led the technical volume, Kevin Spradley who led the qualification and experience volume, Amy Wallace who served as proposal coordinator, and many others who contributed to the writing and reviews. We would also like to thank Christopher Doyle who provided outstanding contracts/ pricing help and Leigh Spano for subcontracts support. This is a big win for Radiance that allows us to grow our support of Army DE efforts.
