Army C5ISR Center seeks CEMA resiliency tech

On January 2, the U.S. Army posted a request for information on technologies enabling resiliency, high capacity, and Command Post Survivability. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on January 31.

The United States Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground is conducting market research on behalf of the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate (S&TCD), in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation Part 10. S&TCD is searching for communications technologies at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3-5 enabling resiliency, high capacity, and Command Post Survivability in the presence of Cyber-Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA).

Technology focus areas/attributes include:

  1. Automated Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency communications systems.
  2. Resilient Beyond Line of Sight Communications to include High Frequency, Troposcatter, and Low Earth Orbit/ Medium Earth Orbit Satellite Communications terminals
  3. Camouflage, Concealment, and Deception capabilities in the Electro-Optical/Infra-Red and Electromagnetic Spectrum
  4. Resilient and Modular Command Post Technologies
  5. Anti-Jam and LPI/LPD waveforms to include Free Space Optical and Light Fidelity systems that provide resilient and LPI/LPD communications at the quick halt and on the move
  6. Applications and Hardware that leverage Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance/Electronic Warfare Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS)
  7. Defensive cyber operations capabilities
