TIME SPACE POSITION INFORMATION (TSPI) SENSORS

Department of the Air Force, Air Force Materiel Command | Published July 16, 2015  -  Deadline August 31, 2015
cpvs

Request for Information (RFI) THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION SYNOPSIS ONLY. THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION FOR PROPOSALS AND NO CONTRACT WILL BE AWARDED FROM THIS SYNOPSIS. NO REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE MADE FOR ANY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH PROVIDING INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO THIS SYNOPSIS, SOURCES ARE ADVISED THAT PARTICIPATION IN PROVIDING INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO THIS SOURCES SOUGHT SYNOPSIS IS STRICTLY VOLUNTARY AND MAY NOT ENSURE PARTICIPATION IN FUTURE SOLICITATIONS OR AWARDS. THE PURPOSE OF THIS SYNOPSIS IS TO NOTIFY INDUSTRY OF THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE'S (USAF) INTENT FOR A FUTURE CONTRACT ACTION AND TO CONDUCT RESEARCH INTO POTENTIALLY QUALIFIED SOURCES AND THEIR SIZE CLASSIFICATIONS. BOTH LARGE AND SMALL BUSINESSES ARE ENCOURAGED TO RESPOND. A SOLICITATION DOES NOT EXIST AT THIS TIME. REQUIREMENT: The USAF located at Edwards Air Force Base, CA is seeking potential sources capable of providing continuous support services, improvements in test methodologies and capabilities, and effective logistical support in order to maintain a test and evaluation capability of Time Space Position Information (TSPI) sensors. TWO MISSION AREAS The Air Force is interested in addressing the capabilities gap resulting from the obsolescence of current sensors, the need to address the accuracy requirements for testing modern navigation systems and the form, fit and function elements of internally mounted systems. The scope of this effort is to address two key mission areas of TSPI sensor applications. •1. Low Cost TSPI Sensor: The Low Cost TSPI Sensor is intended to be installed on ground and marine vehicles and provide medium accuracy outputs for position, velocity, and attitude. For real-time operation, the system will need to interface to a separate Data Link Transceiver and an encryption device as needed. •2. High Accuracy TSPI Sensor: The High Accuracy TSPI Sensor is intended for installation within aircraft that operate in extreme dynamic environments. These sensors must provide high accuracy measurements for position, velocity, and attitude. The sensor design needs to be sufficiently modularized for internal mount configuration to fit into smaller and newer aircraft. For real-time operation, the system will need to interface to a separate Data Link Transceiver and an encryption device as needed. Therefore, the Air Force is interested in suppliers who understand both the operational systems in place to provide TSPI products as well as how to improve the sensor-to-user chain of events to improve real-time situational awareness during test and evaluation operations and provide recorded measurements suitable for post mission trajectory refinement. The Air Force is evaluating all possible solutions sets, including the employment of commercial systems as a provider with sensors already in production or developmental sensors which may mount on future platforms. PURPOSE: The purpose of this RFI is to seek information on current, existing technologies (with possible minor modifications) that can be used to meet the sensor capabilities identified above. The Low Cost TSPI Sensor Requirements Document, the High Accuracy TSPI Sensor Requirements Document and the Concept of Operations Document are attached to this request to provide additional context along with an attached categorical list of efforts. This effort is being considered as a multiple-award indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity contract; however, this remains to be determined. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: GENERAL: The responder must have current domain expertise in the field of TSPI systems. Responder must have knowledge and experience in the current use of and development of TSPI Sensors. The responder must have experience in each of the two key areas of interest, low cost medium accuracy systems and high accuracy internal mount systems, to which they respond. SENSOR INFORMATION SOUGHT For this effort, there are two key mission areas of sensor applications. Each mission area has required characteristics which are considered Key Performance Parameters (KPPs). •1. Airborne Mission: •a. Sensor modularity and size •b. Flight certifiable •c. High accuracy measurements •2. Ground/Sea based Vehicle Missions •a. Cost •b. Size •c. Industrial grade hardware •d. Medium accuracy measurements The Air Force is considering alternatives in each mission area for acquiring TSPI Sensors in support of the Key Performance Parameters (KPP). The system may include sensor hardware follow-on concept, leveraging of planned programmed assets (both ground and airborne-based), and/or shared/purchased systems. Any system technology with a DoD Technical Readiness Level (TRL) less than 7 (each component must have been demonstrated successfully) shall not be included unless responder can show, in the case of the airborne mission environment, a path to flight worthiness. The government expects respondents to offer sensors and sensor suites to satisfy the KPPs. The government expects a variety of options with accompanying discussion of the pros, cons, risks, and associated trade space for the government to consider. Responses should address the technologies available to deliver a sensor suite as described with supporting information addressing modularity, size, performance characteristics, and accuracy. Respondents can address any one individual, or any combination of the two sensor mission areas. Contractors can also respond with either a complete package of hardware and operational software, or just a hardware solution that would require the government to provide operational software. The respondent should provide cost and schedule estimates associated with each mission area addressed. The Air Force is interested in separate cost and schedule estimates for each mission area. The following guidelines should be used for cost and schedule estimation: 1. Cost/schedule estimate will be at 80% confidence level and responders may also include figures from various confidence levels if desired. 2. Sensor life cycle should be 10 years from time of Initial Operating Capability (IOC). 3. Solutions will be TRL 7 or greater. 4. Anticipated IOC is 3rd quarter FY 2017 with capability required through FY 2027. 5. Anticipated Contract Award is 3rd quarter FY 2016. 6. Costs should be broken out to the lowest Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) level possible. 7. Include program level costs - Systems Engineering, Program Management, Integration, Assembly and Test Full-Time Equivalent support, etc. 8. Costs should be separated between development and production costs. 9. Provide time-phased costs and assumptions on inflation rates used. 10. Do not include award fee in cost estimate. 11. Include discussion of any cost drivers, cost tradeoffs, and schedule considerations. Again, these guidelines are given for cost estimation and planning purposes only and the government is only seeking information for market research purposes. SUGGESTED RESPONSE OUTLINE Following is a suggested outline with suggested page counts for a response to this RFI. This outline is intended to minimize the effort of the respondent and structure the responses for ease of analysis by the government. Nevertheless, respondents are free to develop their responses as they see fit. Section 1 - Technical Mission Areas Briefly identify and describe one or more mission areas for which the response is made. Discussion must include the respondent's relevant experience. Section 2 - Feasibility Assessment For each mission area response addressed, briefly describe the feasibility of each and the design tradeoffs involved as matched against the requirements and risks including the reliability, flight heritage and technology readiness characteristics of the alternatives. Section 3 - Cost and Schedule Estimates For each mission area response addressed, provide cost and schedule estimates for each. The desired business information is at an 80% confidence estimate of risk for cost and schedule to produce a cost effective system. These guidelines are given for cost estimation purposes only and the government is only seeking information for market research purposes. The guidelines in paragraph (SENSOR INFORMATION SOUGHT) should be used for cost and schedule estimation. Section 4 - Corporate Expertise Briefly describe your company, your products and services, history, ownership, financial information, and other information you deem relevant. In particular, please describe any projects you have been involved in that are similar in concept to what is described in this RFI, including management and operations approach, and any relevant lessons learned. Section 5 - Additional Materials Please provide any other materials, suggestions, and discussions you deem appropriate. The responder may include any recommended structure of the programmed TSPI operational requirements as suggestions in anticipation that the government will issue a request for proposal. INDUSTRY DAY (TBD): The Air Force 412 TW/ENR may hold an industry day to present its mission and anticipated objectives of the services anticipated as well as meet and consider comments from industry. Any interested parties may attend or send representatives. A telecommunication call-in number may be made available as well for interested parties.
