Rapid End-game Assessment Package (REAP) Phase I Award

Invocon's Small Business Innovative Research proposal for the Rapid End-game Assessment Package (REAP) was selected by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for Phase I funding.  Invocon will use this opportunity to expand our capability in providing highly-integrated systems to the missile defense industry.  The REAP is a highly-integrated health monitoring and lethality assessment instrumentation system for target missiles. The resulting instrumentation will save space, weight, telemetry bandwidth, and integration time compared to current targets.
