Army posts Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Airborne Payload update
On March 29, the U.S. Army posted an update about its Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Airborne Payload procurement strategy (Solicitation Number: W56KGY17RF001).
Program Executive Office (PEO) Intelligence Electronic Warfare & Sensors (IEW&S), Project Manager (PM) Electronic Warfare & Cyber (EW&C), Product Director (PdD) Electronic Attack (EA), is issuing this special notice to provide industry an update on the Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Air Large (AL) program. The MFEW-AL system will provide the Army with an Offensive Electronic Attack / Electronic Warfare Support System to be mounted on a Class IV Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). The MFEW-AL Capabilities Description Document (CDD) was validated by the Army on 8 December 2017.
The Government acquisition approach has been modified and is now considering the use of the Consortium for Command, Control, and Communications in Cyberspace (C5) Other Transaction Authority (OTA) to pursue prototype MFEW-AL systems.
Formalized membership in the C5 consortium will be required to respond to the requirement. Information regarding membership can be found at https://www.c5technologies.org/.
