Radar Environment Simulator(RES28x)

Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) | Published January 17, 2017  -  Deadline January 20, 2017
In accordance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Acquisition Management System (AMS) Policy 3.2.2.4, the purpose of this announcement is to inform industry of the basis of the FAA's decision to contract with a selected source via single-source procedures.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) intends to award a purchase order to Inventive Electronics of Niceville, Florida to meet testing requirements for various Primary and Secondary Radar systems in support of Program Office ANG-E55. Specifically, this procurement is for a Radar Environment Simulator (RES), 2nd Generation Radar Target Generator (RTG) (L/S Band) as well as Mobile Radar Analysis Support System for Sites (RASS-S) Workstation for the Mode-S Program.
Currently, there are three FAA Second Level Engineering organizations that use the RES, which have been previously procured via Inventive Electronics. ANG-E55 has an existing need to replace their internally developed simulators as they are beginning to fail and impact the mission of the subject organization.  In an effort to standardize test equipment used by the FAA and to utilize the previously developed test scenarios ANG-E55 determined it is in the best interest of the agency to purchase equipment currently used in the FAA.
Research has revealed that Inventive Electronics is the sole manufacturer of the specific RES and its components. Inventive Electronics retains the proprietary data rights and is the only vendor capable of providing the required RES Workstation. There are no third party resellers.
A competitive acquisition is not available for this requirement. The FAA is not seeking or accepting unsolicited proposals. The FAA is not liable for any costs associated with the preparing of a response to this announcement.
All responses to this announcement must be directed to Ashley.Gesicki@faa.gov no later than Noon Eastern Standard Time, January 20, 2017.

D--Authoring Instructional Materials (AIM) Solicitation

Department of the Navy, Naval Air Systems Command | Published October 25, 2016  -  Deadline January 31, 2017
AIM is a set of software tools designed to improve, streamline, and automate certain aspects of the development and maintenance of Navy training materials. The Navy uses three different approaches for the development of training materials: Personnel Performance Profile (PPP), Task-Based, and Competency/Skills-Based. AIM I supports the PPP approach to training material development, AIM II supports the Task-Based approach, and AIM Content Planning Module (CPM)/Learning Object (LO) Module supports a Competency Skills-Based or Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) approach. These tools allow for more efficiency and responsiveness in the production and life cycle maintenance of training materials to Navy training activities and to other organizations external to the Navy.
AIM also optimizes the process of instructional development and standardizes the training materials by automating the format and standards promulgated in various military and commercial training design/ development standards. AIM I, II, and CPM/LO Module all operate in the Microsoft MS Windows environment to provide a graphical user interface.
AIM access is currently provided from a centralized government hosted environment where users can access the AIM software and database from geographically dispersed locations. This AIM Central Site effort provides AIM software access and related data to an increasingly wider Navy audience while facilitating data integrity and concurrency. For those users who are not able to access the centralized environment, standalone instances of the AIM software are still in use.
CPM is web-based and current plans for the AIM project includes the eventual suspension of the AIM I  and II applications, and the merging of the LO Module with CPM for a fully web-based AIM application.

Autonomy and Unmanned Vehicle Technologies to Support Amphibious Operations

Department of the Navy, Office of Naval Research | Published December 1, 2016  -  Deadline March 31, 2017

ONR has a broad reaching science and technology portfolio supporting autonomous systems.  There have been programs related to unmanned air vehicles, underwater vehicles, sea-surface vehicles, and ground vehicles.  These efforts have involved fundamental autonomy that is domain agnostic, various sensing approaches, robotics, and kinematics.  Research programs have involved both single platform automation and collective behaviors of multiple unmanned platforms.  These programs have typically been single domain (air, land or sea) in a relatively homogeneous environment.
ONR is now interested in exploring science and technology approaches to support a range of amphibious operations that take advantage of low-cost multi-domain (sea and land) unmanned systems. ONR envision developing autonomous amphibians that will maneuver (individually and collectively) through the surf zone and emerge and navigate ashore.  ONR  anticipate leveraging the vast body of domain agnostic autonomy research that has been done to date and evolve it to address the stressing multi-domain environment.  Moreover, ONR is interested in the unique Science and Technology (S&T) required to autonomously maneuver, sense, and communicate in the challenging sea-land interface in varied shore environments including surf, urban, mud-flats, rocky beach, beach with obstacles, and beach vegetation such as mangroves.
Please note -  this BAA requires white papers.  See attached full announcement for deadlines and further details.

Mission Training Complex Capabilities Support (MTCCS)

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published January 12, 2017  -  Deadline February 27, 2017
This pre-solicitation notice is to post the synopsis for MTCCS. As of the date of this posting, all previous postings for this requirement can be found under solicitation number W900KK-15-R-0052. All future postings will be against W900KK-17-R-0001.
Service Code is R425
Contracting Office Address:12211 Science Dr.Orlando, FL 32826-3224
Requirement Description:The effort includes services to support individual through collective training, leadership training and development, integrated Warfighter functions training, simulation supported training as well as network, security, and facilities management. This effort will consist of MTCCS at multiple hub and spoke locations throughout CONUS and OCONUS locations.
The MTCC requires support for individual through collective Mission Command training; Leadership Training/Development; Warfighter Functions (WFF) training; First Person Simulations (Gaming); and constructive simulations supported training as well as facilities management, event scheduling, security and administrative support, and access control. These training events may occur concurrently or separately. Events shall be combined into a simultaneous synthetic environment using the Live, Virtual, Constructive and Gaming (LVC-G) / Live, Virtual, Constructive Integrating Architecture (LVC-IA) to create an Integrated Training Environment.
Hub and Spoke: Services will take place at Government locations. A Hub is an installation or training activity which acts as a regional or command-based center of gravity for individual and collective Mission Command (MC) training. For the Hub to provide the oversight and support necessary for sustaining consistent training objectives, it requires a larger training staff, training support systems, and training infrastructure (facilities, connectivity, etc.). It provides a focal point for simulations, interfaces, instruction for a majority of the MC systems, and centralized contract and funding oversight/management for the Hub and aligned Spokes. The Hub is authorized greater training resources than its Spokes. A Spoke is a smaller scale MC training capability and infrastructure which relies on the Hub (or Hub coordinated support from other Spokes) for low-density individual MC training support, collective training support in some instances, higher fidelity simulation and/or technical support, and contract/resource management. Spokes have adequate simulations, stimulations, MC system training and technical support to meet tenant unit day-to-day individual and collective training needs, but must coordinate with the Hubs for resources and technical and/or support for large event training such as Culminating Training Events (CTEs), Warfighter Exercises (WFXs), Mission Rehearsal Exercises (MRXs) and divisional battle staff training. Hub and Spoke, as it relates to MC training, is executed through an integrated, less hierarchical and more distributed training structure that extends throughout the Army.
For further requirement and historical information go to W900KK-15-R-0052.

Nozzles

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA Shared Services Center | Published November 30, 2016  -  Deadline December 5, 2017
NASA/NSSC intends to issue a sole source contract to Laser Technology Associates, 28 Charles Street, Tolland, CT 06084 under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b)(1)(i). It has been determined that Laser Technology Associates is the sole provider of 6" Stainless 347 Nozzles, 27" Dia Freeform Nozzle and 6" Inconel 625 Nozzles. 1.	Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) requires the freeform laser deposition closeout to complete the testing and meet all the inspections and joint requirements that are critical to safety margins. NASA has developed this novel closeout process along with industry partner, Laser Technology Associates (LTA). LTA uses proprietary fiber laser and wire fed processing techniques and control algorithms to enable the technology and provide robust joints. LTA is also the only vendor capable of this technology and has signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with NASA to integrate the NASA portion of the technology. The NASA developed process does not exist at any of the centers and the only vendor capable of this process is LTA. 2.	This part is critical to hot-fire testing planned at NASA-MSFC in support of nozzle development using channel wall technology. This component and processing allows wall temperatures to be adequately maintained so that there are no structural failures. Without this component and process, the hardware would not survive the environment. The use of this deposition closeout process is critical since it allows the joints to be fully inspected - eliminating critical failure modes and also provides a robust joint. Failure to procure this would result in failure to test and significant schedule delays.

Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Boosting Innovative GEOINT (BIG)

Other Defense Agencies, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency | Published December 8, 2015  -  Deadline December 8, 2018
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) intends to award multiple Firm-Fixed Price or Cost Reimbursable Milestone contracts under Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) HM0476-16-BAA-0001 for Boosting Innovative GEOINT (BIG) efforts.  This will be a two-step BAA. Step One is to submit a White Paper by the topics' due date/time. White Papers that are determined to be technically acceptable as evaluated against criteria published in this BAA will receive a Request for Proposal (RFP) from an NGA Contracting Officer, which is Step Two. NGA welcomes all innovative and actionable White Papers that will enhance and accelerate Boosting Innovative GEOINT Analysis.  All awards will be based on merit competition.  NGA's goal is to make awards under various research topic areas.  The NAICS codes for this procurement includes 541712, Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering and Life Sciences, but other NAICS codes may apply as well. The period of performance will be open for a period of 36 months from the initial FEDBIZOPPS posting date.
NGA encourages small businesses and universities to propose under this BAA. NGA also strongly encourages and accepts White Papers from collaborations of entities (industry and industry, industry and university, university and university, etc.) because research in multidisciplinary Topic Areas may require forming teams with strengths in multiple science and engineering fields.
The BIG BAA solicits ideas in Topic Areas.  Topic Area 1 is "Value" - In pursuit of optimal user outcomes, NGA seeks input from Industry and Academia on approaches to measure the value of GEOINT data to its diverse customer base in the new Cloud environment. Additional details are located in Section 1.5.1 in the BAA.
Offerors will be directed to use the Intelligence Community (IC) Acquisition Research Center (ARC), hereafter referred to as the IC ARC, for questions and answers (Q&A) at https://acq.westfields.net.  Offerors are encouraged to view the responses to all questions and comments, including those submitted by other organizations.   For technical questions/comments, offerors should reference the topic number in order to better direct and respond to topic questions.
Finally, offerors must periodically check the FEDBIZOPPS for amendments regarding updates or changes to the BIG BAA.  These updates will be made via announcements, additional or revised document postings, or responses to questions/comments made via the Q&A function.  Offerors are responsible for maintaining awareness of BAA updates via the ARC as there will be no other source for announcement of updates or changes to the BAA other than the ARC.
