U.S. Naval Research Lab seeks help with systems development support and integration
On January 21, the Office of Naval Research posted a synopsis for systems development support and integration (Solicitation Number: N00173-16-R-AT07).
The Naval Center for Space Technology (NCST), an organization within the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington D.C., is the designated lead for Navy Space Programs. NCST has the mission to preserve and enhance a strong space technology base and provide expert capabilities in the development and acquisition of space, aerospace and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems which support Naval missions.
In support of this mission, the Space Systems Development Department (SSDD), a department within NCST, has the primary responsibility to develop space, aerospace and C4ISR) systems, and to evolve the emerging technologies that advance the capabilities of these systems to perform science and operational missions. The SSDD develops and advances technologies, defines mission needs, defines concepts of operations and system requirements based on mission needs, develops system architectures, designs and develops systems and subsystems, demonstrates their capabilities and transitions these systems to operational use. SSDD presently has programs at various stages of development and transition. In addition, SSDD is currently involved in the concept definition and design phases on various advanced concepts, studies and projects which will evolve into future space, aerospace, and tactical C4ISR systems.
This synopsis is for the areas of space, aerospace, and terrestrial optical and RF Payload Systems Development, Support and Integration (SDSI) tasking required in support of the SSDD technology advancements, systems requirements, definition, architectures development, and the systems and units design, development and transition to operational use.
