Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) announced today that its
subsidiary, Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., has been awarded a $79.6
million Task Order by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command /
U.S. Army Forces Strategic Command to design and build affordable,
flexible target missiles used for test and evaluation. The Tactical
Range Air Defense Missile (TACRAM) effort is planned to begin
immediately and could extend through April 2025.
Under this contract, Teledyne Brown Engineering will develop
realistic-threat ballistic target missiles, known as “Zombie” targets,
for use in testing advance missile defense systems.
“A great deal of our company’s legacy is built upon leading and
supporting missile defense programs, including target and
countermeasures development, and the test and evaluation of complex
systems,” said Jan Hess, President of Teledyne Brown Engineering. “Given
current and emerging threats to global security, we are proud to provide
these systems that will help support the defense of our nation and our
Army and Missile Defense programs have an increased interest in reducing
the cost of test and evaluation requirements. Zombie targets are
manufactured or reborn in part from components that have reached the end
of their useful life or may be subject to demilitarization. The Zombie
targets, therefore, provide a low-cost solution with
threat-representative capabilities necessary to test the effectiveness
of missile defense assets.
The Task Order was awarded under United States Army Space and Missile
Defense Command’s Design, Development, Demonstration and Integration
(D3I) Domain 1 contract.
