On January 16, the U.S. Navy released a request for information (RFI) for Future X-Band Radar. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on February 13.
This RFI is issued by the Department of the Navy, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), on behalf of the Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems Above Water Sensors and Lasers directorate (PEO IWS 2.0). The Government is conducting market research seeking industry inputs and interest for future development and production phases for Future X-Band Radar (FXR).
The information obtained in response to this RFI is intended to increase our understanding of industry interest and capability for FXR development, initial FXR production, and inform acquisition decisions.
This RFI is a follow-up to a previous RFI and includes some duplicate questions. If a response has already been provided for any specific RFI line items, there is no need to respond again with the same information unless there is an update to what was previously provided.
The Government is interested in procuring FXR from companies that have the following attributes:
- Have past experience developing, integrating, testing, and manufacturing complex radar systems, RF electronics, digital communications networks, high performance processing nodes, high-voltage power distribution and conditioning systems, high-capacity cooling units, and antenna structures.
- Experience teaming with industry partners for subsystem development.
- Experience cooperating with other prime industry partners integrating complex systems.
- Experience maintaining fielded DoD or Military hardware systems.
