Verus Research has been awarded a 3-year, $4.39 million contract to support the Naval Surface Warfare Center (Dahlgren Division) with Frequency Agile High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Source Development, also known as “Agile HPRF.” The contract vehicle is administered via the Department of Defense (DoD) Ordnance Technology Consortium (DOTC).
Under Agile HPRF, Verus Research will upgrade Dahlgren’s Ground Mobile High Power Microwave test bed and provide novel prime power, pulse power, HPRF source, and antenna concepts for future systems. Efforts will include HPRF modeling and simulation, as well as a significant amount of hardware development, installation, and testing.
Some of these activities are planned to occur at Verus Research’s new Midway Park laboratory facility.
According to Verus Research Chief Technology Officer Dr. J. Mark DelGrande, “this award is the culmination of a significant team effort, expanding Verus Research capabilities into HPRF system design, development, and testing.”
