Navy launches solicitation for $99 million IDIQ rapid prototyping contract
The U.S. Navy has begun seeking proposals for a potential $99 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract for build and deliver prototypes to support the delivery of tactical systems to warfighters.
The rapid prototyping contract will have an order period of five years and will cover hardware manufacturing, project management, engineering design, development and testing, drawing development, design analysis, fabrication, BOM development and manufacturability analysis, according to a solicitation released Friday. .
The Unmanned and Expeditionary Weapons Systems Division within the Dahlgren Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center plans to compete for contract IDIQ as a small business-only program and award multiple contracts under the solicitation.
The NSWCDD said this requirement will follow on from existing contracts with Hart Technologies and QinetiQ.
“Desired prototypes consist of hardware components including weapon control systems, fire command and control systems, control box assemblies, training panel assemblies, cables, printed wiring assemblies, antennas, custom test equipment, enclosures and electronic racks that physically support hardware that will be mounted in a variety of aircraft, ships and vehicles,” reads the statement of work.
Proposals are due August 12. The service expects contracts to be awarded by May 30, 2023.
