SUBJECT: Broad Agency Announcement Number FA9453-17-S-0002, "Navigation Technology Satellite-3 (NTS-3) CALL 001," Cancellation Notification dated 26 Sep 2017 1. CALL 001 is officially cancelled. Due to a restructuring of the NTS-3 program after proposal receipt, the Government has determined CALL 001 to be inconsistent with the current Space Vehicles direction for Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT). The restructuring was caused by factors external to the NTS-3 program which changed the mission focus rendering the CALL ineffective. This announcement is linked to RFI-RVKVE-NTS-3. This is a 5-year Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) with CALLS describing the research areas of interest for the Resilient Architecture for Navigation and Timing (RANT) program. This BAA approach allows for proposal submittals at a specified date and time which will be posted through the issuance of proposal call announcements (CALLS) at various times against this BAA. Periodically over the 5-year period (calculated from the baseline BAA publication date), CALLS under the BAA shall be issued to FedBizOpps (https://www.fbo.gov) and to request proposals for specific research efforts as technical topic areas are identified. These subsequent CALLS will contain specific descriptions of the research effort to be addressed, anticipated period of performance, information particular to the specific research technical topic area, and the estimated funding profile for the CALL. Each CALL will specify a proposal due date and time. Proposals received after the stated due date and time will be governed by FAR 52.215-1(c)(3) Instructions to Offerors -- Competitive Acquisition (Jan 2004). Multiple subsequent CALLS are anticipated and may be announced sequentially or concurrently in the FedBizOpps (https://www.fbo.gov/). The Government reserves the right to re-issue a previously announced CALL area(s) with a second, subsequent proposal period. The Government also reserves the right to issue no CALLS. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Vehicles Directorate (RV) is interested in receiving proposals from all offerors to advance the state-of-the-art and scientific knowledge in space and missile technology to include developing and demonstrating new and resilient Satellite Navigation (SatNav) technologies. The Space Vehicles Directorate is chartered with the mission of staying one step ahead in space. The Directorate develops and transitions space technologies for more effective, more affordable warfighter missions. Primary mission thrusts include Space Situational Awareness and Space Protection (protecting space assets from man-made and natural effects). Primary focus areas include: space power, space structures and control, space-based sensing, space environmental effects, autonomous maneuvering, position, navigation & timing constellations (i.e. GPS), small satellites, and next-generation satellite communication. The Integrated Experiments and Evaluation Division (RVE) develops and integrates ground and space experiments designed to assess and prove emerging technologies and concept of operations for military space applications. Proposals that either enable to meet performance, reliability, maintainability, supportability and affordability goals, or which enhance performance or significantly reduce cost, schedule, or risk of existing technologies, are of particular interest.
