The intent of this Request for Information (RFI) is to locate those with the capability to provide the following Products or services: The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal, Plant, Health Inspection Services, and Wildlife Services Feral Swine Program needs camera systems with at least 4 GB data paired with drop traps for aiding in remotely trapping feral swine. These camera systems will be used to monitor feral swine traps that can be remotely triggered. The camera system will allow monitoring and triggering feral swine traps away from the employees duty station. This system also needs to have the capability to detonate any cellular activated trap door which will be useful in triggering other traps USDA APHIS WS has purchased. The cameras systems paired with the drop trap uses a different approach to trapping feral swine by dropping the entire trap. This method allows the catch of cautious pigs that otherwise wouldnt walk into a traditional style trap. These camera systems need to be wired with high gain antennas and routers which allow for quicker receipt of data. The camera needs to have live video feed capabilities which will enable the employees to view the trap area in real time. This system should also be directly wired to any remote detonated trap gate which allows the trap gate to drop without using a second sim card and wireless carrier. The camera system should also come with a solar panel to allow self-charging. This company offering the product will also need to provide technical support. Please be sure to include whether there will be a data plan provided by the company. These systems would be used in rural areas across Mississippi and allow Wildlife Services employees to trap feral swine more efficiently and effectively from greater distances away from their normal work area. The camera system along with the traps would be useful when applying the trapping method of removing whole sounders of feral swine. This camera system should enable the trapper to monitor the trap in live video instead of a delayed picture to accurately trigger the trap door.
