May 18, 2022

Terran Orbital Corporation announced that its subsidiary, PredaSAR Corporation, received a contract award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under an Other Transaction Authority for Prototype Agreement. Specific terms of the Agreement were not disclosed.

This Agreement aims to research synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite formation flying concepts and joint data collection techniques. The potential prototype will provide data products from at least two SAR satellites flying in formation and demonstrate novel data processing algorithms. The conceptual design work is expected to take several months and may lead to follow-on opportunities for prototyping and demonstrations.

"We are thrilled to have been selected by DARPA for this exciting opportunity," said Terran Orbital Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer Marc Bell. "Terran Orbital is proud to combine state-of-the-art SAR Earth observation capabilities and advanced small satellite technologies into game-changing solutions that contribute to the defense of our Nation and Allies. We look forward to demonstrating and delivering cost-effective, end-to-end capabilities."
