Army Intelligence and Security Command posts sources sought notice
On August 14, the US Army Intelligence and Security Command posted the following sources sought notice (W911W5-16-R-0001).
The National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) is conducting market research for a potential requirement. NGIC is seeking information on potential sources who are capable of providing Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Analysis, Production and Process Support to NGIC. This effort would require the Contractor to provide a wholly self-contained, end-to-end, Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Intelligence Mission Data (IMD) production process using the Next Generation EWIRDB (NGES) construct and associated toolsets. Under this contract, Contractor personnel would provide expertise, analysis, production, and process support to the TechELINT/EWIR Branch (IANG-STS-TE) of the U.S. Army National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) in every aspect of EWIR IMD and EWIR Database (EWIRDB) production.
This Performance Work Statement (PWS) describes a wholly self-contained, end-to-end, Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Intelligence Mission Data (IMD) production process. Under this contract, Contractor personnel shall provide expertise, analysis, production, and process support to the TechELINT/EWIR Branch (IANG-STS-TE) of the U.S. Army National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) in every aspect of EWIR IMD and EWIR Database (EWIRDB) production. The Contractor shall perform specific tasks in the areas of information gathering, data reduction, signals analysis, engineering assessment, product preparation and production process enhancement that shall support NGIC’s efforts to accomplish nationally mandated EWIR production and enable NGIC’s TechELINT Branch to realize significant improvements production quantity, quality and efficiency.
The Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming Database (EWIRDB) is the primary Department of Defense (DoD) approved source for technical parametric and performance data on non-communications electronic emitters and associated weapon systems, and the only DoD-validated source of emitter intelligence. The combined EWIRDB merges the all-source radar engineering assessments produced by NGIC and the other Service Intelligence Centers (SICs) with the observed radar signal data housed in National Security Agency’s (NSA) Combined Emitter Database (CED) and in the Observed ELINT Engineering Model (OEEM). CED and OEEM comprise the parametric descriptions of associated emitter signals that are derived from observed technical electronic intelligence (ELINT) data by NGIC and other signals intelligence (SIGINT) producer agencies.
NGIC is generally tasked for EWIR production by the Department of Defense Intelligence Analysis Program (DIAP) for ground-based and heliborne emitters. NGIC is responsible for DIAP production on all foreign air defense artillery (ADA) radars, air defense target acquisition radars, ground surveillance radars, artillery-locating radars, artillery-associated meteorological radars and radiosondes, radiofrequency (RF) fuzed artillery munitions, jammers and electronic attack (EA) systems, heliborne avionics, and similar battlefield sensors and systems. In addition, NGIC is annually tasked for the production of specific emitter models by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) on behalf of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the EWIRDB user community through formal COLISEUM production requirements.
NGIC is operationally tasked by Joint Chiefs of Staff instruction to provide threat analyses and EWIR model updates in support of electronic warfare (EW) reprogramming operations within each theater command. Within NGIC, the TechELINT Branch of the Signatures Division is responsible for EWIRDB, OEEM, and CED production under the oversight of NGIC’s EWIR Production Coordinator and Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR).
