58--Taiwan Improved Mobile Subscriber Equipment (IMSE) Version III Experimental Force (EXFOR) FMS Case: TW-B-ZAW

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published May 6, 2015  -  Deadline June 8, 2015
cpvs

The Improved Mobile Subscriber Equipment (IMSE) Version III system shall provide and support mobile and secure, voice and data communications to the Taiwan Army Tactical Operations Center (TOC)-level command posts (CPs), and remote (mobile) users, while addressing evolving Taiwan Army doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership, personnel and facilities changes. Expected reduction in forces, along with the proliferation of data, command and control (C2), and situational awareness (SA) systems require the IMSE system to be more agile and capable, while increasing the capacity to support Taiwan Army communications. The IMSE Version III system shall provide the capability of voice and data networks for the Taiwan Army Tactical Operations Center (TOC)-level communications by employing technological improvements in radio transmissions, data networking and packetized voice, while minimizing system footprint (power, size, personnel and logistics train). Included with the deployment of the IMSE Version III systems are a tailored logistics package and support architecture to maintain a high rate of readiness of equipment and personnel. It is the objective of this program to develop, deliver, field and support an experimental quantity of enhanced Improved Mobile Subscriber Equipment (IMSE) nodes for the Taiwan Army. The contractor shall provide the products and services to support a Total Package Fielding (TPF) strategy. In order to reduce cost and schedule, it is therefore desirable for the contractor to maximize use of the existing IMSE Phase II equipment's.

59--Universal Battery Charger (UBC)- Synopsis - W91CRB-15-R-0004

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published March 18, 2015  -  Deadline April 2, 2015
cpvs

The U.S. Army Contracting Command - Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), in support of Program Executive Office - Soldier (PEO Soldier) Product Manager Soldier Power has a requirement for a Universal Battery Charger (UBC) that meets all technical requirements outlined in the DRAFT Performance Specification PM-SWAR-SP-UBC-061614 Revision 5 dated 12 March 2015. This synopsis is a follow-on notice to previous notice W91CRB-13-R-0059 for the Universal Battery Charger (UBC) requirement. Based on market research conducted between March 2013 and February 2015, the Government is not using the policies contained in FAR Part 12, Acquisition of Commercial Items, in the UBC solicitation. However, interested persons may identify to the Contracting Officer their interest and capability to satisfy the Government's requirement with a commercial item within fifteen (15) days of this notice. In addition, this market research revealed there are not two (2) or more small businesses (SB) capable of meeting the UBC requirement. Therefore, adequate competition among SB does not exist in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 19.502-2(b)(1). The Government intends to solicit the immediate requirement using full & open competition under North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 335999 - All Other Miscellaneous Electrical Equipment and Component Manufacturing. All items being procured under this acquisition are subject to the Buy American Act. The Government anticipates awarding a single, firm, fixed price (FFP), indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) type contract using the acquisition procedures at FAR Part 15, Contracting by Negotiation. The UBC shall be a state of the art battery charger that is able to charge a wide variety of battery chemistries/configurations; is small enough to be carried in a rucksack; utilizes advanced, commercially available charging protocols; and can be operated using power sources ranging from solar panels to the commercial energy grid. The UBC shall provide a charging capability for the batteries used in Soldier carried equipment and the overall UBC architecture will require open standards for all firmware and mechanical interfaces in order to allow for maximum interface flexibility and future system compatibility. The function of the UBC is as a man-portable charger for various rechargeable battery configurations and chemistries (primarily lithium ion and select nickel metal hydride and nickel cadmium batteries). The UBC will be deployed at the squad or platoon level for use in remote (Tier 1) locations where there is no commercial power grid or reliable power generation infrastructure. Therefore, it is extremely critical that the UBC must be of minimal weight and volume, survive use in a tactical environment (i.e. pass MIL-STD 810 tests) and be able to charge batteries using alternative and/or renewable energy sources along with standard AC and platform DC power sources. The UBC's main requirement is to provide charging capability to different batteries for Small Unit missions greater than 24 hours in tier 1 operations (most austere). It is unlikely that the UBC will be used for missions less than 24 hours. The UBC supports battery usage without resupply by facilitating the use of rechargeable batteries by providing a lightweight battery charger for use in the Tier 1 environment. Critical performance/capabilities include: * Provide the required capabilities in a minimized size and weight. * Interoperability between various tactical and base camp energy sources. * Easily upgraded to allow for new battery designs. * Energy monitoring and management tools that allow the Soldier to determine and report status of remaining battery energy. Potential Offerors will have 30 calendar days following the release of the solicitation to submit their proposals and three (3) fully functional bid samples. Source selection considerations will base the award on a single responsible offeror whose proposal is determined to be the most beneficial and provide the best value to the government. The Government anticipates awarding a single, firm, fixed price (FFP), 5-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ)-type contract with the minimum guaranteed quantity being eight First Article Test (FAT) systems and associated test deliverables and the maximum quantity of up to $84.45M of UBCs and/or UBC Accessories. The Government anticipates releasing a formal RFP W91CRB-15-R-0004 on or about 21 April 2015 with all documents, attachments, and amendments posted at the Army Single face to Industry (ASFI) website: https://acquisition.army.mil/asfi/default.cfm. No hard copies of the RFP will be issued. All Offerors shall be responsible for obtaining documentation from this location. Any questions and/or comments regarding this synopsis shall be submitted electronically in writing to the POC identified below no later than 10:00 am EST on 09 February 2015.
