Navy posts C5I sources sought
On September 5, the U.S. Navy posted a sources sought notice for Combat Systems and Command, Control, Communications, Computers & Intelligence (C5I), Surface Ship ASW, USW, MIW, and Combat Systems engineering, analytical, logistics and technical support services to the Mid Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC) (Solicitation Number: N50054-18-R-0002). Responses are due by 10:00 a.m. Eastern on September 20.
This Performance Work Statement (PWS) describes the minimum effort required to provide Combat Systems and Command, Control, Communications, Computers & Intelligence (C5I), Surface Ship Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Surface Ship Undersea Warfare (USW), Surface Ship Mine Warfare Systems (MIW) and Combat Systems engineering, analytical, logistics and technical support services to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC). Technical Support shall be defined as: providing the equipment and system expertise to aid in trouble shooting, repair, assessment analysis, inspection, root cause localization, identification, maintenance training, logistics configuration support, alteration development /installation, and/or long term problem resolution, related to the specific equipment.
Due to the flexible nature of the configuration of the various classes of U.S. Navy ships in use and supported by MARMC; and since not all ships have the same systems/equipment installed and many of the systems/ equipment have more than one version; a complete list of these systems and equipment is not possible. Additionally, systems/equipment are continually being added and/or deleted from service as they are developed or become obsolete. Essentially, ship systems include any and all systems and equipment both major and minor, that comprise the C4I, ASW, USW, MIW and Combat Systems and suites, including their power supplies, ancillary, peripheral, sensors, support equipment, trainers, training and tactical software, and handling systems. The contractor shall be tasked to perform on any shipboard mechanical/electrical/electronic system and or the equipment that may be installed in any vessel or shore facility worldwide.
A major portion of the work required under this contract will be troubleshooting, assessment, installation, test, certification, incidental repair, refurbishment and the logistical support to combat systems, C4I systems ASW, USW and MIW systems and associated support systems (including but not limited to, ventilation, cooling water, electrical, cable, and fiber,) worldwide.
