USMC seeks vendor for signal intelligence support
On February 10, the United States Marine Corps posted the following solicitation (Solicitation # H92257-15-Q-0155) as a Request for Quotation (RFQ). This is a restricted purchase set-aside for 100% Small Business Concerns. Interested vendors should note that quotations are due on February 17.
Marine Special Operations Company Golf (MSOC G) is a major subordinate element of 2D Marine Special Operations Battalion (2D MSOB), Marine Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC). MSOC G is comprised of four (4) Marine Special Operations Teams (MSOTs) that contain MARSOC operators with a variety of skill levels and a diverse collection of enablers that will be engaged in the full spectrum of joint special operations.
MSOC G has a requirement to conduct full spectrum special operations that are fully coordinated and synchronized among all components of USSOCOM and key interagency organizations, with an ongoing imperative to swiftly evaluate emerging enemy TTPs, and subsequently integrate proven methodologies. The MSOC’s Company Collective Exercise (CCE) is designed to be a challenging training evolution where the MSOC can execute full spectrum operations in an unfamiliar environment. This exercise is intended to create an environment where the enabled MSOC can fully integrate all assets in support of both Marine Special Operations Teams (MSOTs) and the MSOC mission. The exercise requires a realistic scenario that will allow the MSOC to simulate deploying to a specified operational environment where they will be able to conduct full spectrum operations. MSOC G is conducting their CCE from 8 March 2015 -20 March 2015 in Camp Atterbury and the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center (MUTC) in Indiana, while also planning to utilize the cities of Indianapolis and Cincinnati, Ohio as well. The specific requirements will continue to evolve and expand. However, the general signals intelligence requirements for this exercise are listed below:
Requirements exist for a simulated network where SIGINT Role Players act as both civilian and enemy personnel who pass specific information across multiple types of communication devices to replicate the current informational and signals environment. Personnel required include; Signals Intelligence Role Players/Aggressors and Signals Intelligence Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with the necessary required clearance levels for the specified training. The execution of SIGINT within CCE will take place using the existing electromagnetic environment (EME) at MUTC.
