On September 24, the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) issued a request for information (RFI) for ISR/Processing Exploitation and Dissemination (PED 4). Responses are due no later than 2:00 p.m. Central on October 2.

AFSOC has a continuing need for ISR/PED Support in CONUS and possibly OCONUS locations. The bulk of the requirements will be performed at Hurlburt Field, FL, with the possibility of deployed OCONUS locations. The contractor shall support planning and integration of new and existing intelligence collection, exploitation, reporting, dissemination, and evaluation capabilities into AFSOC SOF GEOINT processing, exploitation and dissemination (PED) (SGIP)/intelligence units and shall provide implementation of these warfighting capabilities through direct support to AFSOC.

This includes integration of data from intelligence collection, fusion, correlation, and dissemination systems related to UAS-RPA, manned, satellite systems, and surface/ground collection platforms, conducting ISR operations. The contractor shall provide support for programmatic/unit functions that support intelligence operations, standards and evaluation, unit support functions, and systems security & sustainment activities. The contractor shall be responsible for data collection, reduction, first level analysis, design, plus engineering and integration of simulations and modeling to support evaluation of potential threats, doctrine and requirements, technologies, and defense system interface architectures.

The spectrum of conflict in the simulations may range from peacetime readiness to full-scale warfare, and the scenarios may range from conflict in Central Europe to any number of Third World countries. The contractor shall integrate mission-critical computer resources and representative hardware elements of existing and emerging technologies, cyberspace, weapon systems, aircraft, missiles, national and theater sensor, planning/fusion capabilities, command, control, and communications and the associated doctrine, both U.S. and foreign. The contractor shall support targeting, information operations, deliberate and crisis action planning, and 24/7/365 operations.
