On April 10, the U.S. Navy, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command issued a presolicitation notice and draft RFP for its upcoming Information Operations (IO) and Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) Engineering Services and Software Development solicitation (Solicitation Number: N66001-17-R-0011).
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center, Pacific (SSC Pacific) intends to issue Request for Proposal (RFP) No. N66001-17-R-0011 for Information Operations (IO) and Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) Engineering Services and Software Development. Multiple awards are anticipated.
Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC), Pacific, has a vision of being the Nation’s pre-eminent Technical Leader for integrated Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) needs of the Navy. The Navy’s C4I systems are vital to the goal of achieving and maintaining Information Warfare. A key pillar of Information Warfare is Battlespace Awareness. SSC Pacific provides solutions for many systems that contribute to Battlespace Awareness, including IO and METOC. Battlespace awareness consists of three key environments: Information, Physical and Threat. The threat environment is addressed by Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems that are largely supported by systems operating at security levels outside the scope of this contract. The information environment is addressed by IO systems and the physical environment by METOC. Under this construct, SSC Pacific supports and assists with the planning, integration, maintenance, and operation of systems which enable future synergy and seamless integration of IO and METOC information across the Navy’s C4I systems.
