Verus Research Books Newest Delivery Order in the Test & Evaluation of Non-Kinetic (TEN-K) Family of Programs

Verus Research has been awarded a 5-year, $28 million contract for support under the auspices of the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO-STRI).

This latest effort is known as ANKST (Airborne Non-Kinetic Systems for Test) and supports the Defense Department’s Test Resource Management Center investments in the test and evaluation (T&E) of emerging directed energy technologies. The program will address T&E needs in surrogate high power microwave (HPM) sources, associated instrumentation, and modeling & simulation.

An early focus for ANKST will be continued development of the Verus Research Reusable Recoverable Airborne Engagement (RRAE) program which seeks to fly an HPM T&E source on a recoverable airborne platform as a means of simulating air-to-ground HPM engagements.

According to Verus Research Chief Technology Officer Dr. J. Mark DelGrande, “this continued support of our PEO-STRI customer is a testament to the dedication our team members have put forward creating solutions that matter.”
