R&D- DEFENSE SYSTEM: TANK/AUTOMOTIVE (BASIC RESEARCH)

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published December 15, 2014  -  Deadline January 16, 2015

THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) FROM CONTRACTORS IN SUPPORT OF THE FOLLOWING POTENTIAL FUTURE REQUIREMENT: THE U.S. ARMY TANK AND AUTOMOTIVE RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND ENGINEERING CENTER (TARDEC) REQUESTS INFORMATION REGARDING ADVANCED COOLING TECHNOLOGIES, AS DETAILED BELOW. IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED, RESPONSES MUST BE SUBMITTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS NOTICE, TO THE PERSON IDENTIFIED BELOW, AND BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN 5:00PM, DETROIT LOCAL TIME (EST), ON 16 JANUARY 2015. RESPONSES DEVIATING FROM ANY OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY NOT BE GIVEN FURTHER CONSIDERATION. PLEASE BE SURE TO ADDRESS ALL OF THE FOLLOWING IN YOUR SUBMISSION: 1. INTRODUCTION. COOLING REMAINS ONE OF THE TOP CHALLENGES FOR THE ARMY'S CURRENT AND FUTURE GROUND VEHICLE FLEET. IN TOO MANY INSTANCES, COMBAT VEHICLE COOLING SYSTEMS HAVE FAILED TO PERFORM SATISFACTORILY IN SEVERE MILITARY ENVIRONMENTS, WITH TEMPERATURE EXTREMES LIMITING BOTH VEHICLE CLIMBING AND MAXIMUM SPEED CAPABILITY. ENGINE COMPARTMENT SPACE UNDER THE ARMOR OF COMBAT VEHICLES IS EXTREMELY LIMITED. THEREFORE THE SPACE GIVEN TO THE COOLING SYSTEM IS TYPICALLY INSUFFICIENT FOR FULL ENGINE-POWER REALIZATION. IN ADDITION, MANY COMBAT VEHICLES HAVE BEEN UPGRADED A NUMBER OF TIMES, INCREASING HEAT LOAD TO THE COOLING SYSTEM; AND THESE HEAT LOADS ARE PROJECTED TO INCREASE SIGNIFICANTLY IN FUTURE VEHICLES. TARDEC, IN SUPPORT OF COMBAT VEHICLE COOLING REQUIREMENTS, IS INTERESTED IN GATHERING INFORMATION TO FURTHER ITS UNDERSTANDING OF CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES THAT COULD ENHANCE THE EFFICIENCY, RELIABILITY AND COST EFFECTIVENESS AS WELL AS REDUCE THE WEIGHT AND/OR VOLUME OF VEHICLE COOLING SYSTEMS TO OVERCOME SIZE, WEIGHT AND POWER CONSTRAINTS. SPECIFIC AREAS OF INTEREST FOR THIS RFI INCLUDE: 1) ENERGY EFFICIENT FANS AND FAN DRIVES, AND 2) HIGHLY EFFECTIVE HEAT EXCHANGER(S). TECHNOLOGIES OF INTEREST ARE THOSE THAT WOULD MOST RAPIDLY AND EFFECTIVELY ENHANCE THE RATE AT WHICH HEAT CAN BE REJECTED FROM A 66-TON TRACKED COMBAT VEHICLE RESULTING IN GREATER MOBILITY, INCREASED POWER FOR ACCESSORIES AND/OR ADDITIONAL RANGE FOR A WIDER VARIETY OF POSSIBLE MISSIONS. THE RESPONDENT IS FREE TO RESPOND IN REGARD TO ANY ONE OR MORE OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES. 2. SPECIFIC INFORMATION OF INTEREST: ENERGY EFFICIENT FANS AND FAN DRIVES: THE NEED FOR MORE EFFICIENT FANS AND FAN DRIVES ARISES FROM THE FACT THAT VEHICLE MOBILITY IS LESS THAN OPTIMAL FROM A COOLING SYSTEM PERSPECTIVE. ACROSS THE ARMY FLEET, THE COOLING SYSTEM CONSUMES SIGNIFICANT ENGINE POWER WHILE REMOVING HEAT FROM THE VEHICLE'S PROPULSION SYSTEM. THIS PLACES A CONSIDERABLE BURDEN ON THE VEHICLE AND DEGRADES MOBILITY. AS A CONSEQUENCE, EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS IN FAN GEOMETRY AND FAN DRIVE COMPONENTS COULD PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN COMBAT VEHICLE MOBILITY. TARDEC IS LOOKING FOR COMPACT FANS AND FAN DRIVES FOR COMBAT VEHICLE USE, THAT EXHIBIT HIGH EFFICIENCY ACROSS THE OPERATING SPEED AND PROVIDE THE COOLING NEEDED WHILE REQUIRING LESS POWER THAN CURRENT METHODS IN THE U.S. ARMY INVENTORY. THESE COMPONENTS SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING A MILITARY ENVIRONMENT INCLUDING EXTREME TEMPERATURES, HIGH HUMIDITY, SHOCK AND VIBRATION. THE DESIGN SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING A MASS AIRFLOW OF 2000 LBM/MIN WITH A FAN INLET AIR DENSITY OF 0.055 LBM/FT3 AND A FAN STATIC PRESSURE RISE OF 31 INCHES OF WATER. POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS MAY REQUIRE SOME ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PRIOR TO ANY SUBSEQUENT OPERATIONAL EXPERIMENTATION AT A TECHNOLOGY READINESS LEVEL (TRL) OF 6. THE RESPONDENT IS FREE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE FAN AND/OR FAN DRIVE AND/OR BOTH. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS MIGHT INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING: 1. IMPROVEMENTS TO FAN BLADE GEOMETRY 2. IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF FAN DRIVES 3. ALTERNATIVES TO FAN DRIVE CONTROL SUBSYSTEMS WITH CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR MATCHING POWER USED FOR COOLING WITH ACTUAL VEHICLE COOLING DEMANDS. 4. APPROACHES FOR REDUCING WEIGHT AND VOLUME HIGHLY EFFECTIVE HEAT EXCHANGER(S): COMBAT VEHICLES ARE REQUIRED TO OPERATE OVER ALL TYPES OF DIFFERENT TERRAIN AND UNDER SEVERE ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREMES. INCREASING DEMANDS ON COMBAT VEHICLE ENGINE POWER AND PERFORMANCE HAVE NECESSITATED IMPROVEMENT IN HEAT EXCHANGER EFFECTIVENESS TO MEET THE INCREASED HEAT LOADS OF THE VEHICLE. TARDEC IS LOOKING FOR COMPACT HEAT EXCHANGERS FOR COMBAT VEHICLE USE THAT ARE RUGGED AND EXHIBIT HIGH AIRSIDE EFFECTIVENESS AS A MEANS OF IMPROVING THE RATE AT WHICH HEAT CAN BE REJECTED FROM THE VEHICLE WITHIN GIVEN SPACE CLAIM CONSTRAINTS. TECHNOLOGIES OF INTEREST SHOULD HAVE MINIMAL AIR PRESSURE DROP ACROSS THE HEAT EXCHANGER, AND MINIMAL COOLANT PRESSURE DROP THROUGH THE HEAT EXCHANGER WHILE OPERATING AT COOLANT (50/50 ETHYLENE GLYCOL/WATER) TEMPERATURES OF 230?F AND AIR TEMPERATURES OF 120?F. THE SOLUTION SHOULD PROVIDE AT LEAST 3690 BTU/ (MIN*FT2) HEAT REJECTION CAPABILITY. THE SOLUTION SHOULD HAVE COMPACT DIMENSIONS, LOW MASS, HIGH RELIABILITY, AND BE COST EFFECTIVE. POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS MAY REQUIRE SOME ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PRIOR TO ANY SUBSEQUENT OPERATIONAL EXPERIMENTATION AT A TECHNOLOGY READINESS LEVEL (TRL) OF 6. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS MIGHT INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING: 1. IMPROVEMENTS TO MAXIMUM AIRSIDE EFFECTIVENESS 2. STRATEGIES TO EXPOSE MORE COOLANT THROUGH THE CORE TO THE COOLEST AIR. 3. OPTIMIZATION OF AIRFLOW THROUGH HEAT EXCHANGER CORE. 4. COOLING MODULES THAT REDUCE WEIGHT AND/OR VOLUME 3. PROPEITARY INFORMATION. THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT (USG) ACKNOWLEDGES ITS OBLIGATION UNDER THE FEDERAL ACQUISITION REGULATION (18 U.S.C. ?1905) TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION PROVIDED TO THE GOVERNMENT. PURSUANT TO THIS STATUTE, THE USG IS WILLING TO ACCEPT ANY TRADE SECRETS OR PROPRIETARY RESTRICTIONS PLACED UPON DATA PRESENTED IN RESPONSE TO THIS SURVEY AND TO PROTECT SUCH INFORMATION FROM UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE, SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING: -DATA MUST BE CLEARLY MARKED PROPRIETARY AND BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN EXPLANATORY TEXT SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS CLEARLY NOTIFIED REGARDING WHAT DATA IS PROPRIETARY. -MARK ONLY DATA THAT IS TRULY COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL. -DO NOT MARK DATA THAT IS ALREADY IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN OR IS ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE USG OR THIRD PARTIES ON AN UNCLASSIFIED BASIS. DO NOT SUBMIT ANY CLASSIFIED DATA IN RESPONSE TO THIS MARKET SURVEY. -PROPRIETARY DATA TRANSMITTED ELECTRONICALLY MUST HAVE THE PROPRIETARY LEGEND ON BOTH THE COVER OF THE TRANSMITTAL EMAIL AS WELL AS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FILE. PROPRIETARY INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN THE CORRESPONDENCE SHALL USE THE LEGENDS: "PROPRIETARY PORTION" BEGINS AND "PROPRIETARY PORTION" ENDS. 4. DISCLAIMER. THIS RFI IS FOR A MARKET SURVEY. IT IS AN INQUIRY INTENDED TO MEASURE THE PRODUCT CAPABILITY, DEVELOPMENTAL NEEDS, AND LEVEL OF INDUSTRY INTEREST. RESPONSES TO THIS SURVEY MAY AFFECT THE GOVERNMENT'S DECISION TO ISSUE SOLICITATIONS FOR FUTURE CONTRACTS FOR FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION. THIS IS NOT A PRE-SOLICITATION NOTICE OR REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP), NOR WILL ANY CONTRACTS BE AWARDED FROM THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. INFORMATION PROVIDED REGARDING FUTURE POTENTIAL CONTRACTS, AS PRESENTED IN THIS MARKET SURVEY, IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. ADDITIONALLY, THIS INQUIRY DOES NOT BIND THE GOVERNMENT TO SOLICIT FOR, OR AWARD, ANY CONTRACTS. PARTICIPATION IN THIS SURVEY FROM A POTENTIAL OFFEROR IS SOLELY VOLUNTARY; NO REIMBURSEMENTS WILL BE MADE TO ANY OFFEROR FOR COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH PARTICIPATION IN THIS SURVEY. DATA SUBMITTED TO THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT BE RETURNED, BUT WILL REMAIN ARCHIVED AS PART OF HISTORIC RECORDS. PARTICIPATION IN THIS MARKET SURVEY, WHILE IMPORTANT TO ARMY ACQUISITION PLANNERS, IS NEITHER MANDATORY NOR IS IT REQUISITE FOR FUTURE PARTICIPATION BY THE POTENTIAL OFFEROR IN FORTHCOMING GOVERNMENT SOLICITATIONS. 5. CLARIFICATION OF THIS ACTION. THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF UNMARKED DATA RECEIVED IN RESPONSE TO THIS MARKET SURVEY. ACCORDINGLY, THE POTENTIAL OFFEROR SHALL ENSURE THAT TECHNICAL DATA PROVIDED IN RESPONSE TO THIS MARKET SURVEY SHALL BE APPROPRIATELY MARKED (I.E., PROPRIETARY) TO ENSURE PROPER GOVERNMENT HANDLING OF THE DATA. SHOULD THE USG NEED TO REPRODUCE THE PROTECTED DATA FOR DISTRIBUTION PURPOSES BETWEEN GOVERNMENT OFFICES, ALL SUCH DATA WILL BE REPRODUCED WITH RESTRICTIVE LEGENDS IN PLACE. 6. QUESTIONNAIRE. OFFERORS, WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN COMPETING FOR ANY POTENTIAL CONTRACTS, PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO RESPOND TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE BELOW. THE GOVERNMENT REQUESTS THAT ALL RESPONSES BE RETURNED BY 5:00PM, DETROIT LOCAL TIME ON 16 JANUARY 2015.
