Army posts additional all source intelligence RFI
On April 7, the U.S. Army posted an additional request for information for All Source Intelligence Applications. Responses are due no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern on May 14.
Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) in support of the Program Manager (PM) Intelligence Systems and Analytics (IS&A) Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), is conducting an additional round of market research to further identify commercial items to satisfy Intelligence Applications capabilities as defined in section 2 below and with an additional supporting Draft Requirements Checklist. The checklist (considered Controlled Unclassified Information) is available upon request. The Government invites all business and academic organizations to respond to this RFI notice.
All Source II Intel Application Background
The All Source II Intelligence Application should serve as the initial and primary focal point within a fully integrated mission analysis and mission planning framework
supporting Commander and intel staff work flows and the Situational Understanding visualization that the mission and an evolving operational environment demands. The All Source II Intel Application is not intended to replace Capability Drop 1. This application is intended to operate at brigade and higher echelons. All-source II essentially provides “connective tissue” between DCGS-A Capability Drop (CD) 1 and CD 2 while featuring a support to mission planning and decision-making capability. This application features a measure of the data mining, data visualization, and data management functionalities associated with IS&A CD 2.
Additional Sought Information from the November 2020 Intel Apps RFI
In November 2020, the Government released its initial Request for Information for the All Source II Intel Application. The Government received terrific feedback from numerous industry stakeholders. Many of these stakeholder also actively participated in the Intel Apps Industry Day held on 24 February 2021. Over the past 4 months, the All Source II application’s hardware resource constraints, technical requirements, schedule, and targeted platform (the Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE)) have evolved and matured, and subsequently supports the need for an additional round of Market Research and thus the release of this Request for Information.
Additional information sought by the Government in support of the All Source II Intelligence Application includes:
- Responding Organization’s ability to deploy their All Source II solution as a thin-client application that would deliver a virtual application to end users and resides on the Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) architecture.
- Responding Organization’s ability to be compatible with the Standard and Shareable Geospatial Foundation (SSGF) services and Common Map (used by CPCE).
- Responding Organization’s ability to articulate their minimum hardware resource requirements (e.g., CPU, Memory and Disk Storage) for their software solution that can be hosted on a government controlled and managed hardware platform. The Hardware platform will not have an existing cloud environment (e.g., Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure). The Government will provide supporting documentation available upon request.
- Responding Organization’s ability to provide a software solution that supports normalization, correlation, pattern matching, and automated movement projection analysis.
- Responding Organization’s experience putting a product through Operational Testing with the United States Government. If yes, please provide an example and a Government POC (name, email address, and phone number) who can verify.
- Responding Organization’s experience implementing RESTful interfaces and interfacing with RESTful interfaces.
- Responding Organization’s ability to safeguard SECRET information.
