DISA posts RFI for GCCS-J planning, development and modernization

DISA 112On November 25, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) posted the following RFI for Planning, Development & Modernization of the Global Command and Control System – Joint (GCCS-J). Responses are due via email no later than 5:00 PM eastern on Monday, January 18, 2016.

Overview / Purpose / Description of Procurement:The Global Command and Control System – Joint is the Department of Defense (DoD) joint Command and Control (C2) system of record for achieving full spectrum dominance. It is a suite of mission applications that provides critical joint warfighting C2 capabilities and is the principal foundation for dominant battlespace awareness, providing an integrated, near real-time picture of the battlespace necessary to conduct joint and multinational operations. GCCS-J provides a robust and seamless C2 capability to the Commander-in-Chief (CINC), Secretary of Defense (SECDEF), National Military Command Center (NMCC), Combatant Commanders (CDRs), Joint Force Commanders, and Service Component Commanders. GCCS-J offers vital connectivity to the systems the joint warfighter uses to plan, execute, and manage military operations.

Scope of Effort: The GCCS-J program office is seeking information for the modernization and development of GCCS-J capabilities based on open standards that are deployable in a variety of operational environments (i.e. local, cloud, mobile, etc.). This effort includes development of GCCS-J capabilities to enhance functionality, implement new requirements, increase efficiency, and lower operating, and deployment costs through the employment of new and emerging technologies.

Technical Characteristics:The GCCS-J PMO requires expertise to develop and integrate modern geospatial data processing and visualization tools, and to demonstrate innovative ways to consume, manage, and distribute command & control information including multi-domain situational awareness, missile defense, force protection, logistics, readiness, and intelligence. These tools should leverage modern web standards including HTML5 and should be presented in a variety of form factors including large-screen operations center applications, desktops, and mobile devices such as tablet computers, and smartphones.

In addition, the GCCS-J PMO is seeking the development of enterprise services for the consumption, decoding & encoding, analysis, correlation, fusion, and distribution of C2 data utilizing Big Data techniques & technologies, and cloud patterns including Platform & Infrastructure as a Service (PaaS / IaaS). These services should support processing of information on both classified and unclassified networks, and should address secure mobile use cases including warnings and alert notifications.
