Teledyne Technologies announced that its subsidiary, Teledyne Brown
Engineering, was awarded by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) its Objective
Simulation Framework (OSF), an IDIQ contract with a potential value of $595
million over five years beginning September 1, 2011.
Under the contract, Teledyne will design, develop, test,
implement and maintain the OSF. It will be the centerpiece test and simulation
framework for all elements of the missile defense system.
The OSF will be capable of supporting full scale simulations, ground tests
and live fire events. For the first time, it will tie together the Digital
Simulation Architecture with the Single Stimulation Framework.
Winning this significant contract reflects well on our capabilities for
designing and developing test systems for complex applications such as missile
defense,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president, and chief executive
officer of Teledyne Technologies.
Teledyne Brown developed the first digital and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL)
test and assessment capabilities for missile defense. Through the years,
Teledyne Brown developed and supported advancements in test frameworks that
established ground test standards for missile defense systems.
The company also developed an OSF prototype that incorporates legacy digital
and HWIL capabilities to support Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) test
and assessment activities. Teledyne Brown has executed BMDS tests and assessments
at its headquarters in Huntsville, Ala. and at other locations.
