SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic posts C4ISR E3 RFP
On November 3, the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command posted the final RFP for Support services for existing Evaluation efforts of Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance(C4ISR) systems (N65236-16-R-0005).
The final RFP has been posted. The closing date for this RFP is 04 December 2017. The closing date for questions is 17 November 2017.
Space and Naval Warfare System Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic has a requirement to provide program management, engineering, technical documentation, and integrated logistics support services relating to E3. The technical services provided under this requirement will support overall analytical and technical products to include engineering and technical analysis for C4ISR E3 programs and systems. Testing efforts within the scope of this requirement necessitate the application of extensive knowledge of many types of specialized test equipment, an intimate understanding of data reduction equipment, and the use of intensive analytical skills to develop reports that provide recommendations to protect systems and equipment from degraded performance due to electromagnetic source emissions. This work will support Goal 4 objectives of the “The Navy’s Information Dominance Roadmap for Electromagnetic Spectrum Usage (EMSU), and the Electromagnetic Environmental Effect and Spectrum Management (SM) Navy Training System Plan (NTSP) efforts in providing vital Shipboard Electromagnetic Compatibility Improvement Program (SEMCIP) support to the warfighter.
The support services shall include, but are not limited to the following areas:
a. Engineering testing includes Test and Evaluation (T&E) efforts supporting the TEMPEST Program and Protected Distribution Systems (PDS) Inspections and Certifications.
b. Environmental T&E efforts will include shock/vibration, altitude, salt fog, and temperature/humidity testing.
c. T&E efforts require site surveys at physical locations, as well as modeling and simulation of sites and equipment sets.
