CERDEC I2WD posts RFI
On April 11, the U.S. Army posted a request for information for Gallium Arsenide Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuits for Use in Defense Electronics (Solicitation Number: W56KGU-16-R-0002). Capability statements are due no later than 3:00pm EST on April 26.
The U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD), on behalf of U.S. Army Product Manager (PdM) Radars is conducting a Market Survey to identify qualified suppliers of Gallium Arsenide Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuits (GaAs MMICs) meeting our requirements.
The U.S. Army PdM RADAR, through its prime contractors, intends to procure MMICs for use in defense electronics. CERDEC I2WD RSID is attempting to identify qualified suppliers of GaAs MMICs meeting our requirements. Qualified suppliers are expected to have fully qualified 0.25 micron and/or 0.15 micron pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (pHEMT) processes that are at a manufacturing readiness level of MRL-9 (MRL 9: Low rate production demonstrated; Capability in place to begin Full Rate Production) or better and have fully released process design kits (PDKs). Companies meeting these minimal qualifications are invited to request source control drawings (SCDs) that provide parametric details for each of the MMICs that may be procured.
