Army I2WD posts RFI for Reconfigurable Multi-Function System Capabilities
On October 12, the U.S. Army Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD), Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC), Research, Development & Engineering Command (RDECOM) posted a request for information on Reconfigurable Multi-Function System Capabilities. Responses are due by 3:00 p.m. EST on November 27.
The purpose of this notice is for the Government to obtain market research information and gain an understanding of the marketplace. The US Army’s Radar Systems and ID (RSID) Division in the Intelligence & Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD) is seeking information from academia, laboratories and industry regarding both internally-funded Independent Research and Development (IR&D) efforts and externally funded (contract or grant) efforts on reconfigurable multi-function system capabilities, hardware, software, and systems (including fielded systems).
This RFI seeks information on reconfigurable RF systems that are capable of supporting Radar, Electronic Warfare (EW), Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), and Communications (COMMS). Of interest are techniques, hardware, software, and systems (included fielded systems) that have demonstrated TRL 4 or higher in one or more of the functions and can be demonstrated or road-mapped with milestones.
This RFI also seeks information on emerging techniques, hardware, software, and systems in development at TRL 2 and higher that are needed to support reconfigurable RF systems. Knowledge of reconfigurable RF systems development efforts currently underway within industry, laboratories and academia to develop and demonstrate systems that support multi-function operations against current and emerging threats or targets will help the RSID Division to identify technology options as well as remaining gaps.
