Army issues draft SOW for planned Intelligence & Electronic Warfare Tactical Proficiency Trainer solicitation
On October 23, the Army Contracting Command released a draft statement of work and other documents for a planned solicitation for Intelligence & Electronic Warfare Tactical Proficiency Trainer (IEWTPT) (Solicitation Number: W900KK-16-R-0005).
All responses received prior to the issuance of the final Request for Proposal (RFP), should one be issued, will be reviewed. Early submission of information/feedback is encouraged. Updated versions of the documents may become available. The Government anticipates a pre-solicitation conference in early December 2015 (more information to follow) and forthcoming RFP for a Full and Open Competition to solicit proposals in 2nd QTR FY16.
The Intelligence & Electronic Warfare Tactical Proficiency Trainer (IEWTPT) is a Non-system Training Aids, Device, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS) Program of Record that enables proficiency training for Military Intelligence (MI) Occupational Specialties, including but not limited to collectors and analysts, to exploit intelligence data in training events just as they would in “real world” operations in support of the U.S. Army MI training strategy. IEWTPT fills a MI specific war fighting function training gap at Home-station, Combat Training Centers, and Reserve and National Guard locations supporting sustainment of critical individual, collective, and crew tasks/skills. It is the key simulation enabler for MI personnel training currently supporting All Source, Human Intelligence, Signal Intelligence, Geographical Intelligence, and potentially Measurement and Signatures Intelligence, Open Source Intelligence, and Cyber Intelligence.
IEWTPT trains/supports collection, processing, exploitation, dissemination and cross-queuing of multi-discipline intelligence data supporting mission command and mission execution training events. IEWTPT provides warfighting commanders at all echelons the ability to train the Intelligence Warfighting Function based on accurately portraying the operational environment by simulating the necessary attributes of that environment and stimulating MI warfighting equipment where system operators and analysts are able to conduct their tasks and synchronize their Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance assets (in a training environment) to exploit training events’ intelligence data and provide the commander with required, timely, accurate and executable intelligence information and products.
U.S. Army Contracting Command – Orlando and the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation’s (PEO STRI) Project Manager for Instrumentation, Targets, and Threat Simulators’ Special Operations Forces Training Systems (STS) is seeking pre-solicitation feedback from eligible contractors of the IEWTPT effort. This notice is not a request for competitive proposals. This notice seeks to solicit information that will facilitate further clarification and better understanding of the draft enclosed documents only. All responsible sources may identify their interest and provide input statements/comments.
