Department of Defense - Missile Defense Agency -- Sources Sought: Upgraded Early Warning Radar & Cobra Dane BMDS Test and Evaluations

Synopsis:
The contractor being sought through this RFI shall plan, integrate, execute, and analyze UEWR & CD radar testing in IMTP-defined BMDS test events. The contractor shall also manage, operate and provide non-COTS maintenance for the UEWR & CD HWIL test string provisions provided as GFE at ISTC-1, ISTC-2 and the PCIL and complete testing to integrate upgraded UEWR or CD hardware or software into the labs (ISTC-1/2 and PCIL). The testing shall be adequate to validate that lab UEWR & CD representations are functional and interfaces with the current Single Stimulation Framework and Ground-based Midcourse Defense Fire Control (GFC) lab configurations perform nominally. Additionally, the contractor shall manage COTS maintenance for the PCIL. The contractor shall interface through MDA/SN with the UEWR & CD development and sustainment contractors to obtain mission software and other test provisioning items as necessary to execute each test event. Test provisioning, planning, execution and analysis requires especially close collaboration and data sharing through MDA/SN with development and sustainment contractors, other MDA elements, Operational Test Agencies, and Warfighter operations and maintenance personnel for each Sensor. A key requirement for the UEWR & CD BIT contractor is the ability to manage and organize all required interaction and coordination from each of these external organizations in order to successfully accomplish UEWR & CD participation in tests identified in the IMTP and to fulfill test provisioning, planning, execution and analysis activities that may be occurring simultaneously on multiple test events. MDA/SN will coordinate with Government development and sustainment contractors and operational agencies for all test planning and design, pre-test analysis, test execution, and post-test analysis with personnel, facilities, equipment, operations, maintenance and support as required by the contract.
