Army posts RFI for Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Airborne Payload
On August 12, the U.S. Army posted a request for information for Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Airborne Payload (Solicitation Number: W56KGY16RM0225). All white paper submissions are due no later than 3pm, 45 days after the release date of this RFI.
The Program Executive Officer (PEO) Intelligence Electronic Warfare & Sensors (IEW&S), Program Manager (PM) Electronic Warfare & Cyber (EW&C), Product Director (PD) Electronic Attack (EA), is conducting this RFI to identify potential sources for the development of modular, scalable, Offensive Electronic Attack/ Electronic Support payload capabilities as described below.
This is a Request for Information (RFI) for planning purposes, as part of a market survey on potential sources and emerging technologies in support of development of an acquisition strategy to procure an Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) system to be mounted via wing pylon pod on a Class IV Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Requirements have been identified in an MFEW Air Systems of Systems (SoS) Capabilities Description Document (CDD) currently in Army staffing with an anticipated Milestone B in 3QFY18. A classified draft Performance Base Specification (PBS) will be available upon request and upon verification that proper security prerequisites are met.
The Government requests that interested parties submit white papers that fully describe their system capabilities with respect to the performance levels as stated in the classified draft PBS in as much detail as possible. Based on the white paper submission, the Government may elect to conduct a one-on-one discussion based on its analysis of the RFI response, to include the quality of submission and level and scope of the information provided.
