The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] confirmed today the submission of a proposal for the U.S. Army Enhanced Medium-Altitude Reconnaissance and Surveillance System (EMARSS). According to Dennis Muilenburg, president and CEO, Boeing Defense, Space & Security, Boeing brings the value of a large system integrator that also is able to work at a fast pace to place tools in warfighters’ hands as soon as possible. “We are committed to delivering early and to providing a mission system that works as promised to bring soldiers home safely.” Said Muilenburg. The Army’s EMARSS request for proposals calls for a persistent capability to detect, locate, classify/identify, and track surface targets in day or night, near-all-weather conditions with a high degree of timeliness and accuracy.
Other competitors for the program include Northrop Grumman and L-3 Com. The service is expected to announce the award in late September. Boeing submitted its proposal on May 25.
