Army posts EMARSS-E prototype aircraft notice
On July 3, the U.S. Army posted a special notice for the development of up to two Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance Systems-Electronic Intelligence (EMARSS-E) prototype aircraft. A Virtual Collaboration Event will be held on July 10, 2019 for this opportunity.
This is not a notice for a solicitation. This is not a Request for Proposal or Request for Enhanced Whitepapers (EWPs). This Special Notice is to advise that the Government intends to issue a Request for Whitepapers (RWP), AMTC-19-06, under the Aviation and Missile Technology Consortium (AMTC) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) for the development of up to two (2) Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance Systems-Electronic Intelligence (EMARSS-E) prototype aircraft that will be capable of intercepting, direction finding, and geolocation of emitters, and support of All-domain Overhead Cooperative Operations (AOCO).
The effort will evaluate the technical feasibility and manufacturing feasibility of the prototype being developed. Included in the assessment of a prospective offeror’s manufacturing feasibility will be a mandatory pre-award survey on-site visit conducted by the Government prior to the submission of EWPs under RWP AMTC-19-06. Pre-Award Survey Checklists will be provided to each offeror and will be used to assess a prospective offeror’s manufacturing feasibility. Information obtained during the pre-award survey on-site visit will be assessed on an overall Pass/Fail basis. All requests for pre-award on-site visits must be forwarded to Brian Huff (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Marc Busala (email@example.com) no later than 5:00pm CDT on 15 July 2019 and be completed no later than 5:00pm CDT on 25 July 2019. Any potential offeror not willing to schedule the pre-award on-site visit need not provide a submission to this RWP.
A Virtual Collaboration Event will be held on July 10, 2019 for this opportunity. Registration details and sign-ups for government one-on-one sessions will be provided to AMTC members and posted on the Members Only websites.
The AMTC, comprised of the National Armaments Consortium (NAC) and the Vertical Lift Consortium (VLC), has partnered with U.S. Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center and the Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal (ACC-RSA) to develop innovative aviation and missile technologies that rapidly and affordably enhance warfighter lethality, survivability, and combat effectiveness.
