Army intelligence command seeks WiFi finders and directional antennas

KEYW The U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, based at Fort Belvoir, VA, has a requirement for WiFi direction finders and directional antennas, which it intends to fulfill with a sole source contract to KEYW Corp., the manufacturer of the BUSHIDO WiFi finder.

“BUSHIDO is a handheld, Wi-Fi direction finding solution capable of detecting and measuring the signal strength of any 802.11a/b/g/n device in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands,” explains an Army presolicitation notice published on September 12. “The unit is rugged, sealed, water-resistant composite housing for better performance and survivability.”

Interested parties that think they can supply a comparable product are given three days in which to submit their proposal to the Intelligence and Security Command.

The work will be performed at Fort Belvoir. Further information is available from Andrea Knowles at 703-428-4491.
