Navy releases IWRP industry day details

On December 6, the U.S. Navy released information about the upcoming Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Virtual Industry Day. The virtual event will take place on December 14.

The Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR), Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic and NIWC Pacific plan to attend the Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Consortium Virtual Industry Day on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 from 1000 to 1700 EST. The event will include presentations from Dr. Arielle Miller, NavalX deputy and technical director, Ms. Jee Youn Fickling, IWRP program manager, Advanced Technology Institute, consortium management firm, and technical briefs and one-on-one breakout teleconferences.

Technical briefs will include a variety of information warfare research technology focus area topics. It is anticipated that the topics will be the basis of upcoming Requests for Prototype Projects (RPPs) to IWRP consortium members. This is not a RPP, but for planning purposes only. A project will not be awarded from this announcement. In order to obtain more information regarding the projects below you must be a member of the IWRP consortium. For more information on becoming an IWRP consortium member,

The government anticipates three (3) RPPs for white papers, enhanced white papers or full proposals to be solicited via N65236-22-9-0001. RPP topics will include a technical brief and one-on-one breakout teleconferences. The RPP topics consist of the following:

1) 23-LANT-1394 Dynamic SATCOM Management and Control: The government is seeking to prototype a means to manage a diverse and holistic Satellite Communication (SATCOM) architecture as close to the user and planner as possible and still maintain control. The prototype includes managing a dynamic SATCOM operation by proactively assigning resources and executing a diverse architecture.

2) 23-LANT-1414 Time and Frequency Distribution System Replacement: The government is seeking to prototype the Time and Frequency Distribution System Replacement (TFDS-R). TFDS-R will replace the currently fielded TFDS, which is a major component of shipboard timing systems, so that the Navy can meet time and frequency requirements, reduce equipment obsolescence, and accommodate future technologies. The prototype will provide a systems engineering model utilizing the Model-Based
Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach.

3) 23-HQ-1413 Scalable MOSA Radio Cluster: The government is seeking to develop a prototype for a modernized solution to deploy advanced waveforms and modernized cryptographic algorithms to the Fleet in a manner that is sustainable and leverages existing commercial items and Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) radios. The government seeks a Scalable MOSA Radio Cluster (SMRC) solution that demonstrates the ability to integrate radios capable of instantiating DoD information repository waveforms of various frequency bands constrained to a government-defined set of size, radio frequency and electrical power interfaces.

The government will be presenting four (4) Pre-Solicitation Collaborations (PSCs), which will include a short brief and one-on-one breakout teleconferences.
