Army I2WD posts RFI for EWTV, SOCOM support
On October 3, the U.S. Army posted an Electronic Warfare – Air & Ground Survivability (EWAGS) Technology Request for Information (RFI) for Electronic Warfare Tactical Vehicle (EWTV) and United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) support. Responses are due by October 10.
The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD) Electronic Warfare Air/Ground Survivability (EWAGS) Division is seeking information from Technical, Information and Engineering Services (TIES) contractors and/or performers regarding their ability to support existing Electronic Warfare Tactical Vehicle (EWTV) and United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM). Knowledge of these efforts is of significant interest for ensuring continuing operations CONUS and OCONUS associated with EWTV/SOCOM. The responses will be used primarily for planning purposes, but also for rapid investigation of special topics of interest. Responding to the RFI does not guarantee any further action on the part of the Army.
