Air Force SpaceOn June 10, the U.S. Air Force posted the following Industry Day announcement.

The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) is pleased to announce a Small Business Industry Day (SBID) to be held in Los Angeles, CA, mid Oct 2016. Please note the government will not reimburse participants for any expenses associated with their participation in this event. SMC delivers resilient and affordable space capabilities for the nation. The Center focuses on making today’s space systems more affordable, evolving and implementing new architectures that are affordable and resilient, and delivering war fighting capability by maintaining momentum on improving and executing programs.

The SMC SBID event will provide a targeted forum for interested Small Businesses (SB)s to 1) brief senior government representatives, major defense contractors, and other small businesses on their specific capabilities; and 2) hear about potential prime contractor business opportunities within SMC. SBs are advised that this SBID opportunity is targeted to the Broad Areas of Interest (BAI) and the associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes identified in this announcement. Briefing time limits may be required in order to accommodate all attendees and the number of attendees per company may be limited. Furthermore, pending the level of response and building capacity issues, attendance may be limited to SBs that provide the most interesting white papers and/or on a first come, first serve basis. Companies will be notified in advance of their selection to provide briefings, the exact location of the event and briefing time and/or attendance limitations.

To be considered for attendance, a SB must provide a white paper(s) (not to exceed 5 pages) describing their capabilities directly related to the BAI/NAICS codes in this announcement. SBs may submit multiple papers but only one per BAI. SBs that are selected for invitation will be expected to brief their capabilities during the SBID. Papers for purely commercial-like services (including information technology, security, advisory and assistance services, & other management services) will not be considered for this targeted event. White papers are due no later than 30 days from the date of this posting to FBO.
