Any responses to questions will be made in writing, without identification of the questioner, and will be included in an amendment to the solicitation. Even if provided in other form, only the question responses included in the amendment to the solicitation will govern performance of the contract. (End of Provision) The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 423690 with a small business size standard of 500 employees. This acquisition is 100% set-aside for small business. All offerors shall provide a quotation for the following line items: Line Item 0001: Six (6) 8040C Rubidium Frequency Standard. STATEMENT OF WORK: BACKGROUND: The requested item is an integral part of the Sistema Interamericano de Metrologia Time and Frequency Network (SIMTN) and the NIST Time Measurement and Analysis Service (TMAS). These systems allow very accurate (nanosecond level) NIST time to be distributed and measured at remote locations around the world, allowing NIST to provide support to U. S. industrial customers, and to our international colleagues. PURPOSE: These items are being purchased to allow the construction of new systems for the Sistema Interamericano de Metrologia Time and Frequency Network (SIMTN) and for the NIST Time Measurement and Analysis Service (TMAS). These systems must be built for new NIST customers to fulfill NIST obligations. We also need to keep some units in stock to repair existing systems at NIST customer locations in the event of equipment failures. The requested item is plug, pin, and software compatible with those systems, and meets all measurement specifications that are currently being quoted to NIST customers. DELIVERABLES: Rubidium frequency standard with built-in distribution amplifier, quantity 6. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: We require a Microsemi 8040C Rubidium Frequency Standard or equivalent. The product must meet each of the following technical specifications: 1) Rack mountable. Must be mountable in standard equipment rack (19" wide) and occupy just one rack unit (1.75" of panel space). 2) Must have six programmable frequency outputs. Each output must be configurable for each of the following signals: 10 MHz sine wave 10 MHz TTL 5 MHz sine wave 5 MHz TTL 1 MHz sine wave 1 MHz TTL 1 pulse per second (1 Hz) 3) Must have the ability to communicate with a computer using the RS-232 interface. 4) Must have the ability to accept frequency steering corrections as small as 2 × 10-12. 5) Must have the ability to accept phase/time corrections in sub 20 ns steps. 6) Must have frequency stability of less than 1 × 10-12 at all averaging times from 10 seconds to 1000 seconds as estimated with the Allan deviation. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS: All of the technical specifications in the above section are equally important. Any deviation from these specifications would require a considerable engineering effort to overcome, as existing systems and services already owned and maintained by NIST would have to be redesigned at considerable time and expense to the Government. GOVERNMENT FURNISHED PROPERTY OR INFORMATION: The requested item must be able to interface with existing systems deployed as part of the Sistema Interamericano de Metrologia Time and Frequency Network (SIMTN) and the NIST Time Measurement and Analysis Service (TMAS). More than 40 of these systems currently exist. The systems built at NIST that require the requested item are described in papers listed in the Reference Section. DELIVERABLE SCHEDULE: 30 days ARO INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE: 100% conformity to stated technical specifications is required for acceptance. REFERENCES: The systems built at NIST that require the requested item are described in the following papers: M. A. Lombardi, J. M. López-Romero, and N.

Hydrogen Compressor

Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) | Published September 12, 2015  -  Deadline September 15, 2015

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This solicitation, NB647020-15-04257, is issued as a request for quotation (RFQ). This solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-84. The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 333912, with a small business size standard of 500 employees. This is a total small business set-aside. This combined synopsis/solicitation is for the following commercial item(s): CLIN 0001: One (1) Hydrogen Compressor Description of requirements for the items to be acquired: PURPOSE: The mission of the Hydrogen Pipeline Safety Project is to test different materials in an environment of pressurized hydrogen gas. These tests are conducted at a pressure range of 250 psi to 20,000 psi. In order to obtain these pressures we must have a gas compressor that is compatible with the safety and purity issues associated with hydrogen. For example, it should have an explosion-proof motor or be capable of operating safely in a hydrogen environment, and it must be a compressor that will not introduce contamination, specifically O2 or H2O. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: We need a free-standing hydrogen compressor, appropriate for laboratory testing. It should be capable of maintaining 6-nines hydrogen purity. Any compressor will be evaluated in our lab with our standard procedures, and a gas sample sent to Atlantic Analytical Laboratory for analysis. If the sampled gas exceeds 2 ppm O2 or 2 ppm H2O, the compressor will be rejected. The compressor will typically be used multiple times/day by an automated system (no human monitoring), so it must perform reliably, on demand. The footprint should be no larger than 6 feet by 6 feet. An input pressure somewhere between 50 and 200 psi whereby the flowrate is at least 2 scfm. We do not expect the flowrate to remain that high if the input pressure drops below the manufacturer's recommended value, but we should be able to drain the supply bottle to 50 psi or less. Ouput pressure of at least 5500 psi. Explosion-proof motor or non-sparking drive, as this unit will operate inside the laboratory. We already have a working system, therefore, we do not need all of the ancillary equipment, such as pressure switches, bypass valves, etc. However, the unit should have manual valving for pump priming when diaphragms are changed and we need to get the air out of the oil side for priming. Installation not required 10 days for acceptance Delivery requested by December 1, 2015 BASIS OF AWARD: Award shall be made to the lowest priced, technically acceptable quoter. This will be a firm fixed price purchase order to the responsible contractor submitting a quote that meets all of the requirements of this RFQ and who has the lowest price.

In future experiments, one or both gimbals will be operated from a van in a field location. The Contractor shall provide two 2 identical gimbals. The requirement for each gimbal must meet or exceed the following minimum technical specifications: TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: • Pan and tilt operation with o 0.5 arc second resolution o +-75 arc-sec accuracy o +-10 arc second repeatability o slew rate of 80 degrees per second and angular acceleration of 600 degrees per second squared in both azimuth and elevation (at 50% duty cycle). • Direct drive control • up to 10 kg load capacity • Zero backlash • 180 degree total azimuth travel, -10 to +90 degrees elevation travel • Boulder, CO 80305.
