General Atomics Receives $38.8M Army Deal for Explosives Detection

The U.S. Army awarded Poway-based General Atomics a $38.8 million, one-year contract modification to operate, sustain and integrate Highlighter sensors able to detect improvised explosive devices. The sensors are on two deployed Highlighter aircraft. Unlike other GA products, these aircraft have onboard pilots.

GA’s Highlighter sensors run Claw software and ride in C-12 Huron aircraft. The C-12 is a piloted, twin turboprop known in civilian circles as a King Air, built by Hawker Beechcraft Corp.

The Pentagon announced the deal on July 15. The Army Contracting Command of Redstone Arsenal, Ala. awarded the contract.
