The Naval Air Warfare Center’s weapons division, which runs what is known as the “Joint Common Geo-Positioning Services Project Team,” will soon be looking for multiple vendors that can produce and deliver new “Intelligence Exploitation and Targeting Systems,” or IETS.

Common geo-positioning systems provide the software and capabilities required for the accurate geo-location, image exploitation, precise target point measurement and targeting product generation for intelligence personnel in operational units and command centers of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines Corps, according to a presolicitation notice issued by the Naval Air Systems Command on January 9.

Vendor responses are due by January 24. The Navy plans to issue its formal solicitation on February 3, and award multiple indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts by approximately July 1. The minimum order per IDIQ contract is $2,501, says the Navy notice.

“The contractor shall perform systems engineering analysis, software design and product reviews, system and software development, integration, testing, installation, operation, training, sustaining engineering and help desk technical assistance,” the notice continues.

Approximately 80 to 90 percent of the Navy’s future orders will require the chosen vendors to produce and deliver new or upgraded Intelligence Exploitation and Targeting Systems, while 10 to 20 percent of the orders will require the delivery of analysis reports.
