NGIC posts applied remote sensing, image science sources sought
On February 21, the National Ground Intelligence Center posted a sources sought notice for Applied Remote Sensing and Image Science Support (Solicitation Number: W911W5-NARs). Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on March 9.
The National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) is conducting market research for a potential requirement. NGIC is seeking information on potential sources who are capable of conducting remote sensing and imagery science for hyperspectral, Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR), radar, and multispectral intelligence requirements. The NGIC provides the imagery science support to the Army for ground forces intelligence requirements.
This effort would require a contractor to conduct remote sensing imagery science for scientific and technical problem sets, including, remote sensing lab and field work with scientific Page 2 of 3 instrumentation, and test range setup and execution. A well-qualified respondent should be able to provide at least two examples of planning and executing remote sensing lab and field tests to address or answer a scientific problem.
This effort would require a contractor to develop remote sensing algorithms and operationalize and transition imagery science capabilities to GEOINT analytical capabilities. A well-qualified respondent should be able to provide at least three examples in which a remote sensing or imagery science solution was developed, operationalized, and transitioned to an analytical capability.
This effort would require a contractor to conduct 24/7 ISR imagery science support at forward deployed locations and provide 24/7 CONUS Reach imagery science support. A wellqualified respondent should be able to provide at least one example of supporting forward deployed ISR assets with deployed and CONUS Reach imagery science.
