Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division intends to conduct this effort on a sole source basis in accordance with the statutory authority 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1 to Sunshine Aero, 3164 Airport Road, Crestview Florida, 32539. The basis for restricting competition is lack of sufficient technical data, duplicative cost to the Government that is not expected to be recovered through competition, and the unacceptable delays in fulfilling the agency requirement through any other source. The Government is seeking information from companies mitigating the sole source basis listed above. The Government is seeking companies with the capabilities and facilities that allow the government to properly test air countermeasures on an aircraft. This would include an aircraft that is fitted with a generic dispenser pod that would be used to dispense decoys with timing sequence. Please provide information of performance on other Government contracts with similar efforts. Responses should include availability, budgetary cost estimate, and lead time of the solution, as well as, whether a demonstration unit can be provided to expedite the decision making process.
