Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic would like to announce that there will be an Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Consortium Industry Day held at Trident Technical College in North Charleston, SC on Monday, 13 August 2018, with check in starting at 0800. The event will include briefings on the SPAWAR Organization, Other Transaction Authority, IWRP, Consortium Operations, presentation of Technical Briefs, and one on one breakout sessions. Technical briefs presented during the IWRP Consortium Industry Day will include the below five topics. It is anticipated that the topics will be the basis of upcoming Request for Prototype Projects (RPP) to IWRP Consortium Members. 1. Universal Cloud Infrastructure Deployment Capability This topic will seek to develop a prototype to rapidly develop a Commercial Service Provider (CSP) agnostic write- once/deploy-many type capability, in an Agile Software Development Framework. It will enable Developers to code description of virtual networks, hosts, load balancers, virtual protocol networks (VPNs) in one location and have CSP specific classes translate the environment and call upon CSPs specific Application Programming Interfaces to deploy environment to a single or multiple concurrent cloud providers. 2. Covert Direction Finding This topic seeks to build a prototype that produces a low profile Body Worn (BW) Direction Finding (DF) capability that can provide accurate Lines of Bearings (LoBs) for find, fix, and finish operations, as well as Electro-Magnetic Spectrum (EMS) situational awareness. 3. Goose Sensor System This topic seeks to build a prototype that will enhance survivability and provide force multiplication to the expeditionary warfighter. Previously, the United States Marine Corps left a man behind to ensure that previously cleared rooms in a building remained empty. The Goose Sensor System will enable the warfighter to deploy a passive infrared sensor of small size, weight, and power to remotely alert him to room breaches. 4. Enterprise Network & Internal Private Cloud - This topic will seek to develop a prototype for the a) creation of an enterprise network to link multiple, independent & geographically separate work centers together with a multi-site, multi-tenant internal private cloud that utilizes Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies to automate network operations, minimizing required manpower to operate the network; b) provide seamless workload mobility between work centers and for the ability of a user at one work center to utilize computing resources at another work center and internet access at another work center; and c) creation of a two-location global network operations center (NOC) that will operate & maintain the enterprise network/private cloud. 5. Network and Data Security This topic will look to receive prototypes that provide network and security measures that are for safeguarding Covered Defense Information (CDI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) held by contractors and incident reporting. The desired prototype will address the need for industry to meet or exceed current federal requirements to safeguard CDI and CUI, report adverse security incidents and for government assurance of contractor and sub-contractor compliance without unnecessary increase in cost or oversight. Note that in accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2371b(f), and upon a determination that any of the prototype project(s) for this transaction has been successfully completed, this competitively awarded prototype(s) OTA may result in the award of a follow-on production contract(s) or transaction(s) without the use of competitive procedures. Details concerning potential follow-on production is included in the RPP, its attachments, and its related Statements of Work.
