USAF needs contractor support for testing remotely piloted aircraft at Holloman AFB and elsewhere
The USAF’s Air Combat Command wants to find a contractor that can help support Air Force training at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico in “battlefield air operations,” particularly those involving electro-optical and infrared sensors seeking ground targets during the training of remotely piloted aircraft crews.
The Air Combat Command issued a “sources sought” document on February 7 which solicits inputs from prospective vendors who can provide special expertise in remotely piloted aircraft (such as the Predator) and Command & Control and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) capabilities.
“Historically, the requirement has been met by two, 2-man JTAC [Joint Terminal Attack Controller] ground range support teams at Creech AFB and six 4-man JTAC ground range support teams at Holloman AFB,” explains the USAF notice.
The vendor’s contract performance would take place at Holloman AFB and a half dozen other military locations, says the notice.
Responses from interested parties are due by Feb. 21. Further information is available from Julie Miller, a contract administrator, at 575-572-5297 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
