The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) intends to issue a competitive solicitation in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2017 for FY 19-23 Design Agent and Engineering Services (DA/ES) efforts to support sustainment of the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC). The anticipated requirements include CEC software development, integration, and testing, and the delivery of new CEC capabilities. The CEC program provides a sensor network with Integrated Fire Control capability that significantly improves strike force air and missile defense capabilities by coordinating measurement data from strike force air search sensors on CEC-equipped units into a single, integrated real-time, composite track air picture. The CEC sensor netting system improves the Area Air Defense capabilities of Naval Carrier Strike Groups and Expeditionary Strike Groups by extracting and distributing sensor-derived information such that the superset of this data is available to all participating CEC Cooperating Units. CEC fuses the distributed data into a single fire control quality air track picture that significantly improves unit track precision, consistency and continuity; expands detection range; and improves reaction time. CEC also improves strike force effectiveness by improving overall Situational Awareness and by enabling longer range, cooperative, multiple, or layered engagement strategies. The contemplated contract will include the following efforts: •Integration of the CEC system with AEGIS Advanced Capability Build 20 (ACB 20) •Integration of the CEC system with SSDS ACB 20 •Integration of the CEC system with E2-D Advanced Hawkeye •Completion of Zumwalt Class wholeness •Development and maintenance of the CEC system, including in-service baseline maintenance and development, integration, test, and delivery of annual maintenance builds •Testing of the CEC system with United States Marine Corps capabilities •Integration of the CEC system with Foreign Military Sales customer platforms •Trade studies, design studies, technical feasibility evaluations, analysis, and documentation •Element-level development, design, and integration through Final Qualification Test of future CEC software capabilities and hardware technology refresh initiatives, including development of prototypes and support for experiments and demonstrations •Delivery of CEC software, sustainment products, and hardware maintained under configuration management to support Land-Based Test Sites, Contractor sites, or other development sites or labs •Post-delivery technical support to ensure system of systems compatibility and interoperability of CEC systems on installed platforms for all delivered software baselines and hardware configurations, including investigation and adjudication of Trouble Reports, Data Analysis Working Group support, fleet issue analysis, and reach-back support The contemplated contract will include Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF) completion-form line items for specific CEC product deliveries. The contract will also include options consisting of annual Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF) Level-of-Effort (LOE) line items for other CEC engineering and support requirements, along with associated Cost-Only line items for ancillary Other Direct Costs. Prior to the issuance of a formal solicitation (Request for Proposal) for this procurement, NAVSEA intends to release a draft copy of selected solicitation sections. Additionally, Program Executive Office, Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS) anticipates hosting an Industry Day to present an overview of the CEC program and the solicitation requirements. Interested companies will be provided the opportunity to access a Bidders Library containing technical data that may promote a clearer understanding of CEC and the Navys requirements in this procurement. The draft solicitation, Industry Day announcement, and instructions for requesting access to the Bidders Library all will be released at a later date via the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website under this solicitation number.
