UNIT IDENTIFICATION CODES WHICH APPLY TO LETTERKENNY ARMY DEPOT ARE AS FOLLOWS: W0H91Q Field Office IMMC W0L6AA USA Depot Letterkenny W39Z02 OSC LEAD Munitions W459AA USA TMDE Attachment 1 PERFORMANCE WORK STATEMENT (PWS) FOR Aerial Deer Surveys 1.0 General: 1.1 Scope: The contractor shall provide all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, quality control and other items and non-personal services necessary to perform Aerial Deer Surveys as defined in this PWS, except as specified in Paragraph 3.0 as Government Furnished. The contractor shall perform to the standards in this contract. 1.2 Background: Letterkenny Army Depot is soliciting offers to conduct five thermal infrared imaging (FLIR) surveys to determine white-tailed deer population on approximately 18,400 acres. Surveys shall be done using an aerial radiometric infrared camera. Survey aircraft are required to be equipped with properly functioning Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to assist in aircraft guidance and flight recording. Helicopter, fixed winged or drone aircraft may be used. Performing an aerial deer survey is very important in determining the abundance and distribution of white-tailed deer on Letterkenny Army Depot. LEAD's Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan requires that the wildlife on the installation be managed to ensure the long-term health, viability and productivity of the forests and natural landscapes on LEAD. White-tailed deer are perhaps the most influential wildlife species in the forest ecosystem. Through selective browsing of native plants, shrubs and trees, they influence the vegetation that grows and the health of the forest. Deer also influence other wildlife species and other forest values, and can impact their own habitat. Overabundance leads to malnutrition, disease, increased vehicular accidents, and loss of ecosystem health. Currently, the deer population is estimated through vehicular ground surveys and harvest results although the accuracy of the data is unproven at this point. Performing aerial deer surveys in the late winter for 5 consecutive years and comparing that data to our existing data would provide a more accurate baseline of the deer herd abundance and distribution. This would allow the Natural Resources Office to make more effective decisions in terms of the deer harvest to ensure a healthier ecosystem and maintain a sustainable population. 1.3 Period of Performance (POP): The Period of Performance shall be one Base Year of 12 months and four 12-month option years. The Period of Performance will be identified in the contract. 1.4 General Information: 1.4.1 Recognized Holidays: The following are recognized US holidays.

Attachment 1 LETTERKENNY MUNITIONS CENTER PURCHASE DESCRIPTION FOR ARMD IGNITER ASSEMBLY 1. REQUIREMENTS: Letterkenny Munitions Center has the requirement for one thousand (1000) each new igniter assemblies with the following standard features and options: 1.1 SPECIFICATIONS: 1.1.1 See attached drawing 15813-330-01 REV 0 1.1.2 All igniters must be fabricated according to the specifications on the attached drawing. No substitutes or equals may occur. 1.1.3 Igniter leads will be fabricated utilizing 20 gauge insulated copper wire with a heavy duty 22 gauge nichrome wire as the heating element and spring lock terminal connectors. The igniter body will be sheathed in 4 mil poly tubing. Igniters will be assembled and packed with an easily removable shorting clip of the manufacturer's choice, installed between the spring lock terminal connectors that will insure a positive shunt to the circuit. 1.1.4 Ignition charge will consist of 10.5 grams of high specific impulse composite propellant with exceptional reliability. Functional characteristics include a seven second burn period with a 14 inch flame plume. 1.1.5 15 year shelf life expectancy as determined by the date of the manufacturer. Igniters are considered Type II shelf-life items that have an assigned shelf-life of 15 years from the date of manufacture. 1.1.6 The igniter will function when a 5 to 12 VDC, (8 Amp) current charge is applied across the bridge wire. 1.1.7 Hazard classification of 1.4S and a Department of Transportation Special Permit of Authorization for transport will be determined by the Defense Ammunition Center. 1.1.8 Packaging will be in accordance with the United Nations (UN) Performance Oriented Packaging for Dangerous Goods, Packing Group II -- 4G/Y certified fiberboard boxes for shipment and handling. Igniters must be individually packaged for shipping, delivery and consumption in an EMR shielded inner package (Method Code GX, Method 41 conforming to MIL-DTL-117). 1.1.9 All igniters will be distinguished by utilizing the standard LOT numbering system. A LOT numbering system is an alpha-numeric designator, systematically assigned to each ammunition LOT at the time of manufacture that uniquely identifies the particular ammunition LOT throughout its lifecycle. A LOT is defined as a quantity of homogeneous ammunition items manufactured by one activity under uniform conditions with identical stock materials and designed to function in a uniform manner (See MIL-STD-1168C). LOT numbers will be included on unit pack, intermediate container and over pack, individual igniters do not require marking. 1.1.10 A copy of the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) 1.1.11 Markings: Shall be accomplished by any means that provides the required degree of legibility and durability. The markings may be applied by tagging, stenciling, machine printing or labeling (using preprinted labels). Lettering/markings shall be in capital letters of equal height, clearly visible and the largest size practical for the package size within the acceptable range. When the marking space permits, stenciled or preprinted markings shall be not less than 3/32 of an inch. The markings shall be located as to allow ease of reading and to ensure that the markings will not be destroyed when the pack or container is opened for inspection or until its contents have been used. If a label is used for the markings then the label shall have a finish suitable for printing and writing on with ink without feathering or spreading, be capable of withstanding normal handling and storage conditions, and remain securely in position. Markings that describe shelf life shall be shown as part of the item identification data on unit packs, intermediate containers and exterior containers (marking is not required for the actual igniter). Markings that describe shelf life shall include the date of manufacture and the re-inspection/test date as appropriate. 2. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: Individual packaging must not omit any type of radio frequency signals. Special hazardous material shipment documentation is required. All shipments shall be supported by documentation attesting to the date and the test results obtained from performance packaging testing. The shipper, if not a self-certifier, shall be responsible for assuring that third party sources providing performance testing services are, in fact, registered with the Department of Transportation. The shipper's signed certification that the packaged configuration meets applicable requirements shall be incorporated on the DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, or other related acceptance document if the DD Form 250 is not used. All certificates and reports shall be available for government inspection by authorized government representatives for a period of three years. 3. PRESERVATION, PACKAGING AND DELIVERY: 3.1 Department of Defense (DoD) Regulations obligate the utilization of commercial or minimally required packaging protection at the most economical overall cost without compromising established DoD safety standards. If it can be assured the material will not enter the military supply distribution system or be exposed to environments more severe than those normally encountered in the commercial distribution network. These guidelines provide the manufacturer the latitude to determine the most cost effective packaging method to pack and ship the igniters, provided the means of packaging and shipping maintain the integrity of the igniters throughout the designated 15 year life cycle and meet UN/DOT packaging specifications. The contractor shall consistently use Level B Protection, capable of providing protection to meet moderate worldwide shipment, handling and storage conditions. The containers shall be domestically manufactured and of a minimum size to provide a snug fit for the igniters to eliminate the possibility of any free movement during handling and transport. The containers/packaging will be constructed so as not to permit damage to the contents and facilitate subsequent handling. Corrugated containers, will, at a minimum meet the standards of the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) item 222. The box will display the manufacturer's certificate that appears on all containers and shall include size and weight limits and strength of fiberboard utilized. When a container that is manufactured to a Government approved drawing or specification has successfully passed all applicable UN recommended performance tests, both the UN performance specification (certification) markings and applicable government approved drawing or container specification marking shall be applied. Although shipping the igniters under a DOT Special Permit (DOT-SP) authorizes deviation from specific requirements of Title 49 CFR, transportation and local requirements such as safety, storage, intra depot movement and the DoD Standardization Program demand more stringent performance oriented packaging specification and has marking requirements. 3.2 Inner Pack Marking: Igniters will be packaged (alternate packing materials may be substituted if they achieve a level of safety and protection at least equal to that required by the military specification (MIL-SPEC) and marked as follows: one each igniter, individually (heat) sealed in 4 mil (or greater) antistatic poly tubing, conforming to MIL-PRF-81705D, Type III Commercial equivalent ULINE P/N S-6607 (3 quote mark x 500' roll or as appropriately sized to accept igniter), or anti-static poly bags conforming to MIL-DTL-117, Type II, Class H, Style 2. This heat sealed poly sheath or bag will provide adequate electrostatic discharge protection. 3.3 Unit Pack Marking: The unit pack will be marked (stamped or labeled) with the following: P/N 15813-330-01, CAGE code - 3MFD5, Nomenclature quote mark Igniter TTC quote mark , Shelf-life --date of manufacture over inspection/test date - to be established by the manufacturer. ASSEMBLED DATE 10/14, INSP/TEST DATE 10/29, LOT (TBD by manufacturer), ESD caution symbol or mark quote mark ESD Hazard quote mark quote mark Caution quote mark . The contractor shall utilize standard commercial methods for preservation and packaging appropriate for the igniter assembly and the accessory equipment acceptable to commercial carriers. The contractor shall ship the igniters per the proper Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) shipping and hazard classification to include proper UN Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) and appropriate UN POP markings. 3.4 Intermediate Pack (inner carton): Packed with an appropriate quantity of igniters (not to exceed 25 each and so packaged that the anti-static poly tubing unit pack acts as cushioning material to maintain igniter separation and prevent friction and impact during transportation). Intermediate packaging will comply with Box, Folding, Style I, seal end, Paragraph 6.1.2.1 of Federal Specification PPP-B-566 or equivalent commercial alternative as determined by the manufacturer. Intermediate packs with less than the established quantity per pack of a specific LOT (end of a production run, etc.) will not be mixed with follow on LOTs. This intermediate pack will be marked with the appropriate actual quantity and prominently marked quote mark LIGT BOX quote mark highlighted with orange paint or ink on the front, back and top of the box. Intermediate packs will be sealed utilizing standard pressure sensitive tape. Inside an intermediate light box empty boxes (filled with fiberboard or similar cushioning) may be utilized as dunnage to support the exterior container and reduce loaded cartons from shifting. The empty boxes will be marked/labeled quote mark EMPTY quote mark and highlighted with orange paint or ink on the front, back and top of the carton. Intermediate Pack Marking (Product Information Label) will be marked (stamped or labeled) with the following: P/N - 15813-330-01, Quantity (determined by the manufacturer), Nomenclature quote mark Igniter TTC quote mark , LOT (TBD by manufacturer/JMC), Weight (TBD by manufacturer), Special Markings of Explosive Label, Class 1.4S (or appropriate HC as assigned by DAC), ESD Caution Label, Shelf-life - date of manufacture over inspection/test date - to be determined by the manufacturer ASSEMBLED DATE 10/14, INPS/TEST DATE 10/29. 3.5 Exterior Pack (Exterior or Shipping Container): This container should be packed with an appropriate quantity of intermediate containers (not to exceed 40 pounds gross container weight) and so packaged that the inner carton and the outer packaging form an integral packaging. Once assembled it remains thereafter an integrated single unit; it is filled, stored, shipped and emptied as such. Exterior containers should contain identical quantities of intermediate packs of the same LOTs. If light boxes are packed in exterior packs the container will be appropriately identified with quote mark LIGHT BOX quote mark on the front and the back sides of the container and highlighted with orange paint or ink with a 2 inch wide orange band circumferentially surrounding the top and bottom of the box marked with the appropriate actual quantity. Exterior containers may also include multiple LOTs and will be prominently marked quote mark MIXED LOTS quote mark on the front and back sides of the container and highlighted with yellow paint or ink with a 2 inch wide yellow band circumferentially surrounding the top and bottom of the box marked with the appropriate actual quantity per specified LOTs. When empty boxes (filled with fiberboard or similar cushioning) are utilized as dunnage to prevent loaded boxes from shifting and to square the load, these boxes will be marked quote mark EMPTY quote mark and highlighted with orange paint or ink on front, back and top sides of the carton. All exterior containers will be quote mark UN Certified quote mark as quote mark POP quote mark (performance oriented packaging) and appropriately marked on the lower side of the container that is opposite the product information label. The certification will be prefixed by the UN packing symbol and followed by alpha numeric code as specified in CFR Part 178-3. The proper shipping name will be placed directly below the UN certification. The marking must be stamped, embossed, printed or otherwise permanently marked on a non-removable component of the packaging. Exterior packs will be sealed utilizing standard pressure sensitive tape. If shipping individual exterior containers as quote mark Transport Packages quote mark the container will require a shipping label applied to the individual package adjacent to the product information label (see shipping label below under unitized load marking). Exterior Pack Marking (Product Information Label): The exterior pack will be marked (stamped or labeled) with the following: P/N - 15813-330-01, Cage code - 3MFD5, Nomenclature quote mark Igniter TTC quote mark , Quantity - to be determined by the manufacturer/JMC, WEIGHT - to be determined by the manufacturer, CUBE - to be determined by the manufacturer, Shelf-life - date of manufacture over inspection/test date - to be determined by the manufacturer ASSEMBLED DATE 10/14, INPS/TEST DATE 10/29), Special markings - Explosive label, Class 1.4s, ESD Caution Label, Ground Transport Only, DOT Special Permit - followed by specific exemption number. 3.6 Unitized Load (Unit/Pallet Load): The manufacturer has the leeway to determine the most cost effective method to assemble the palletized load for transport. The pallet load will be restrained in such a manner as to eliminate the possibility of the contents of the pallet from movement or shifting during transportation or handling. The materials will be stacked in a method that creates a centered, well balanced and square load. Overhang of containers will be kept to a minimum. A palletized unit load shall never exceed six feet in total height. The load maybe secured by strapping (metal or nylon) or stretch wrap film provided the process maintains the load integrity. If stretch wrap is used it should be secured to all four corners of the pallet. If securing the containers to the pallet by strapping the containers and pallet girth in multiple directions will not be closer than two inches from any edge, then banding will need to encircle the pallet. The corner protectors should be used to protect corrugated fiberboard containers when the tension required to stabilize the load could damage the containers. Palletized unit loads of igniters will have shipping containers facing outward in order to view the product information label. The top layer - right side box (when facing the pallet - on the front and back side of the pallet), will be turned inward to present a blank surface (except UN certification) for application of the shipping label. If the palletized unit load is 10 cubic feet and over, additional identification markings shall be placed on the end of the load adjacent to the shipping label marked side. The required markings shall not be obscured by cleats, strapping or closure tape. When a palletized load is covered with stretch-wrap film, pressure-sensitive labels containing the identification and shipping address markings may be placed on the outmost layer of wrap, on either side of the load. Exterior container identification markings shall be placed on a marking board or panel, securely attached to two adjacent sides of the palletized load, by using a label or by direct stenciling. Palletized loads with smooth, flat surfaces may have identification markings stenciled directly on two surfaces, with markings extending from one container to another. The gross weight for palletized unit loads shall include the weight of the pallet, because palletized loads are often stacked two or three high when shipped or stored, the marking shall be large enough to be read from a distance. The size of the lettering shall be proportionate to the overall size of the unitized load but shall not be less than 0.75 inch in height. The paper labels that are other than pressure sensitive shall be securely affixed with a water resistant label adhesive or a transparent, waterproof, pressure-sensitive tape. Palletized loads of containers of items having different LOTs shall be marked as multipacks. A complete packing list and/or the applicable shipment documentation will be attached in close proximity to the container displaying identification and shipping address markings of each shipment unit. The packing list identifies the contents of a single-piece or multi-piece shipment unit. Water resistant envelopes shall be used for packing lists, material release/receipt documents, MSDSs, etc. and it will be securely affixed or fastened the envelope to the palletized load or container in the most protected location.
