Description

This is a Notice of Proposed Contract Action under FAR Part 12 Acquisition of Commercial Items and FAR Part 13 Simplified Acquisition Procedures. This notice is for information only; a solicitation will not be issued. THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL. The associated North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 334220 with a size standard of 1250 employees. AFRL/RIGB requires the purchase Four (4) Eight-Channel Software-Defined Radios (SDR), to support Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) of Radio Frequency (RF) mission capabilities achieved through an N-Channel (N=8) digital transceiver system relevant towards Electronic Warfare (EW) objectives; three (3) Quad-Channel Software-Defined Radio (SDR) to support Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) of Radio Frequency (RF) mission capabilities requiring multi-channel (≥ 4) and wideband (≥ 1000 MHz) operation relevant towards Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and Electronic Warfare (EW) capabilities and twenty-four (24) Quad-Channel Software-Defined Radio (SDR) to support Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) of Radio Frequency (RF) mission capabilities. This equipment will be paired with equipment already owned by the Agency. The specifications of the required items are as follows: Item 0001 SYMPHONY HOTSHOT Plus, Rugged, Conduction-Cooled 3/4 Air Transport Rack (ATR) Tactical Enclosure System, Supporting Dual SYMPHONY Radio Frequency (RF) Cores • 8 Independent or Phase-Coherent Receive/Transmit (Rx/Tx) Channels • 2 MHz - 18,000 MHz Rx/Tx Tuner/Exciter Range, each Channel • 100 MHz Instantaneous Bandwidth Rx/Tx, each Channel • 2x Gigabit Ethernet Control/Data Input/Output (I/O) • 4x SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet Data I/O • Serial & General-Purpose I/O • 2x Altera Stratix 10 SG280 SoC (GX2800 FPGA) for DSP • PolyPNTR-based SAASM GPS, INS, LN-CSAC with common Position, Navigation, Timing (PNT) References and N-Channel Coherence across RF Cores 1 & 2 as well as additional HOTSHOT Plus ATRs • Single Board Computer (SBC) for Antenna, Amplifier and HOTSHOT ATR Command, Control (C2) & Cybersecurity with Secure Boot, Removable SSD, HW Encryption, ATA Security Erase and HW Zeroization Features (Panic Support/Secure Erase) • 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet (1/10 GigE) Switch for 1 GigE C2 and 10 GigE Data Coherence and Distribution • MIL-STD-810G Tested for High/Low Temperature, Shock and Vibration with Performance for Medium-Altitude Flight in Tactical Aircraft • 2 MHz - 18,000 MHz RX/TX Tuning Range Each Channel • 4 Independent OR phase coherent RX/TX channels • 80 MHz Instantaneous Bandwidth RX/TX each Channel 1X GIGABIT Ethernet Control 2X SFP+ 10 GIGABIT Ethernet Data Integrated SAASM GPS, • CSAC and INS Compliance with JICD v3.3, JICD v4.2 • VITA 49 Output formats Item 0002 SYMPHONY HTLw-TP, Miniature Quad Transceiver Core System packaged in Rugged, Conduction-Cooled Mobile/Tactical Enclosure • 4 Independent or Phase-Coherent Receive/Transmit (Rx/Tx) Channels • 2 MHz - 18,000 MHz Rx/Tx Tuner/Exciter Range, each Channel • 1000 MHz Instantaneous Bandwidth Rx/Tx, each Channel • 1x Gigabit Ethernet Control/Data Input/Output (I/O) • 2x SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet Data I/O • Serial & General-Purpose I/O • Altera Arria 10 SX660 SoC for 1000 MHz DSP • PolyPNTR-based SAASM GPS, INS, LN-CSAC • MIL-STD-810G Tested for High/Low Temperature, Shock and Vibration with Performance for Medium-Altitude Flight in Tactical Aircraft Item 0003 SYMPHONY HTLx+-TP, Miniature Quad Transceiver Core System packaged in Rugged, Conduction-Cooled Mobile/Tactical Enclosure • 4 Independent or Phase-Coherent Receive/Transmit (Rx/Tx) Channels • 2 MHz - 18,000 MHz Rx/Tx Tuner/Exciter Range, each Channel • 100 MHz Instantaneous Bandwidth Rx/Tx, each Channel • 1x Gigabit Ethernet Control/Data Input/Output (I/O) • 2x SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet Data I/O • Serial & General-Purpose I/O • Altera Stratix 10 SG280 SoC (GX2800 FPGA) for 100 MHz DSP • PolyPNTR-based SAASM GPS, INS, LN-CSAC • MIL-STD-810G Tested for High/Low Temperature, Shock, Vibration, Humidity, Drop, Dust/Sand and Rain The Government intends to negotiate a sole-source contract for the purchase of the items described above with: Herrick Technology Laboratories, Inc., 20201 Century Boulevard Suite 200, Germantown, MD 20874. The Government has made a determination that no other source can meet this requirement. HTL is the only known manufacturer of the required items which are compatible and interoperable with AFRLs previously purchased systems. Alternatives offered by other sources would require modifications and extensive additional integration with existing antenna arrays and rugged mission computers, whereas acquisition of the above items will ensure immediate interoperability; tenability of this source is required to interoperate with an existing investment. Alternatives offered by other sources would require modifications and extensive integration, from which the Government would experience a duplication of costs not expected to be recovered through competition. This is a notice of proposed contract action and NOT a request for competitive proposals. However, all responsible sources may submit a capability statement or proposal, which shall be considered by the agency. Responses to this notice must be submitted by the date/time listed on the notice. Any response to this notice must show clear and convincing evidence that competition would be advantageous to the Government in future procurements. Responses received will be evaluated; however a determination by the Government not to compete the proposed procurement based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The Government anticipates an award date on or before 27 September 2017. A Sole Source Justification will be attached to the subsequent Notice of Award in accordance with applicable regulation.
