SPAWAR seeks information about small-business ISR capabilities
On July 14, the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command posted a sources sought notice for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems Engineering, Software Development and Modification, Test and Evaluation.
This Market Survey is issued for the purpose of determining Small Business capabilities. Small Business firms having the capabilities to perform the tasking described in this RFI are encouraged to respond. If this requirement is set aside or reserved for small business concerns, it should be noted that any resultant contract or task order for services (except construction) will require at least 50 percent of the cost* of the contract performance incurred to be expended for employees of the concern proposing as a prime. Please see FAR Clause 52.219-14, Limitations on Subcontracting (Nov 2011) for prescription and complete version of the clause.
The scope of this Statement of Work (SOW) includes systems engineering; software development & modification, test and evaluation; and program management services in support of Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance surveillance systems to include ocean, airborne, land and space platforms. Within the scope of this effort are systems engineering tasks and support; requirements analysis; system design; system architecture studies; independent analysis, verification and validation; tactical data applications; hardware and software development; web page and database development, design, maintenance and system administration support. This effort also provides for life cycle support of surveillance programs/systems/networks, and tactical data communications systems including automated radio communications systems and satellite terminal systems. Trade-off studies may be required to provide a basis for the selection of software/firmware and development methods, which translate required system improvements into functional system elements.
