DS2 Awarded Contract to Procure and Field Rapid Airfield Damage Assessment Systems (RADAS)

Over the past two-decades, DS2 staff have been developing solutions to meet various civil engineering command and control mission needs.

RADAS is one of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center’s (AFCEC) latest research and development projects that implements the use our solutions integrated with Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to reduce the time and risk to assess and recover the airfield after an attack.

UAS’s are quickly deployed to locate airfield damage and unexploded ordinance. Real-time Full Motion Video views are provided to civil engineers through the use of the Geospatial Expeditionary Toolkit (GeoExPT) and other solutions to automatically assess and determine the most efficient areas on the runways and associated taxiways to repair to quickly resume air operations. In operational use, these solutions provide engineers and installation leaders a collaborative and simple- to -use interface in developing an airbase recovery plan.
DS2 will be responsible for procuring, configuring, shipping, installing, and training the systems at approximately twenty-two locations, including installations across Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE) and stateside.“DS2 is excited to start this new contract with AFCEC. Our end-to-end experience developing, fielding, and training RADAS  over the past decade will help to ensure a successful implementation.,” said Rich Pruitt, President. 

DS2 is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business providing a full spectrum of life-cycle software engineering, application development, and IT management solutions to DoD, federal and commercial clients. Utilizing agile development procedures, DS2 specializes in modeling and simulation; LVC training; and geospatial, ATAK, and mission planning solutions in support of the warfighter.
