National Air and Space Intelligence Center issues intelligence analysis RFI
On January 29, the National Air and Space Intelligence Center posted a request for information (RFI) to conduct market research in preparation for a possible HAVE STAR VII contract solicitation (Solicitation Number: ID05140125). Potential vendors should submit a letter of interest and capability statement no later than February 12, 2015.
The HAVE STAR has been a critical contacting vehicle for the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) for 30 years. This contract has provided highly specialized intelligence analysis required by NASIC to analyze and evaluate worldwide foreign developments, and has continued to evolve to meet current and future systems, subsystems, technologies, and operational concepts related to the Air and Space systems, subsystems, and other new initiatives as they develop.
The primary objective of this contract is to support the evaluation and analysis of intelligence data on foreign developments in current and future weapon systems, subsystems, and technologies impacting Air and Space systems, and other new initiatives. The intelligence data will be in the form of “all source” intelligence information, and will be used to support assessments and long-range forecasts of foreign developments in areas of interest (as described below). The highly specialized program support and training provided by this contract is an essential ingredient to NASIC analysis required to define worldwide targets in the areas of Air, Space, Cyberspace, Missiles, Signals, Information Operations, and selected new initiatives. The number and depth of specialized areas of these analyses require specialists of exceptionally high competence in the areas of military systems, operations, and trained to recognize subtleties in foreign developments which may directly impact current and future military operations and weapons developments.
Release of a solicitation is tentatively planned in March of calendar year 2015.
