GD Wins Mine Countermeasure Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Contract

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

General Dynamics Advanced Informational Systems Incorporated, McLeansville, North Carolina, is being awarded a potential $86,719,986 contract with cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee, and firm-fixed-price line items for the engineering, manufacturing and development of the Surface Mine Countermeasure Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (SMCM UUV). The SMCM UUV system will provide the fleet mine warfare commander with enhanced mine-hunting capability. The SMCM UUV system will address the Navy's need to reliably detect and identify undersea volume and bottom mines in high-clutter environments and areas with potential for mine case burial. The SMCM UUV will also gather environmental data to provide intelligence support for other mine warfare systems. SMCM UUV system will be a part of the Littoral Combat Ship MCM mission package. This contract will also contain an option for the production of up to five low rate initial production systems. The Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, Panama City Beach, Florida, is the contracting activity.

Threat Reduction Agency Awards Contract to Polytechnic Institute

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia, is being awarded a $39 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to utilize the Comprehensive National Incident Management System. This effort will explore, develop, and incorporate methods to combine simulation-generated expectations with evidence from individual noisy and sparse sensor or surveillance information sources, increasing the classification sensitivity of a sensor/surveillance suite; and take complex system state estimates as inputs and support human mediated and/or automatic context-based system-management decision making. This effort will also use high-performance computing and modeling technologies to represent large-scale socio-technological systems; adapt newly emerging technologies and investigate new methods, when necessary, to achieve the desired level of analytical capability; and support reachback, combatant commands, local, state, and first responders. This was a sole-source procurement. The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Fort Belvoir, Virginia, is the contracting activity.

DARPA Seeks Advanced Warfighter Thermal Imaging

By George Seffers

DRS Technologies RSTA Incorporated, Infrared Technologies Division, Dallas, Texas, is being awarded an $11,186,684 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Low Cost Thermal Imager-Manufacturing (LCTI-M) Program seeks to provide each warfighter with the capability to detect threats and increase visibility in all weather conditions. The program aims for very low cost, low space, weight and power and room-temperature thermal cameras with state-of-the-art performance. The goal of LCTI-M is to enable widespread use and distribution of infrared cameras in military systems for each warfighter. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is the contracting activity.

Polytechnic Institute to Provide High-Performance Computing Research

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia, is being awarded a $13,536,712 task order under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to utilize the Comprehensive National Incident Management System. The objective of this research and development effort is to provide high-performance computing methods for modeling very large socio-technical, biological, and information systems. These will be in the areas of surveillance and sensing integration; simulation-based course-of-action analysis and decision support; "simfrastructure" specialization and enhancement; infectious disease assessment capability enhancement; and large-scale network efforts. The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Fort Belvoir, Virginia, is the contracting activity.

BAE Awarded Cloud Computing Contract

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

BAE Systems National Security Solutions, BAE Systems Advanced Information Technologies Incorporated, Burlington, Massachusetts, is being awarded an $8,825,492 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract modification for the Mission-Oriented Resilient Cloud (MRC) Program, which is intended to be a companion program to the existing clean-slate design of resilient, adaptive, secure hosts effort. The MRC effort is concerned with the amplifying effect of the network, seeking to turn this around and use the network as a vulnerability damper and source of resiliency. Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.

Northrop to Develop Miscroscale Power Conversion Technology

By George Seffers

Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, Electronics Systems Section, Linthicum Heights, Maryland, is being awarded an $8,973,993 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for microscale power conversion. The objective of this program is to develop innovative radio frequency power amplifier designs that incorporate supply modulation and control enabled by novel power switch technology. Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.

IBM to Provide Cloud-Like Platform as a Service Environment

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

International Business Machines Corporation, Global Government Industry, Bethesda, Maryland, is being awarded a $12,171,809 firm-fixed-price and cost-reimbursement contract for Enterprise Information Services Production Environment, a cloud-like "platform as a service" information technology hosting environment used to host classified and unclassified Air Force data and software programs. Electronic Systems Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.

Research Lab Seeks to Replace Traditional GPS Receivers

September 30, 2011
By George Seffers

Northrop Grumman Space and Mission Systems Corporation, San Diego, California; Rockwell Collins Incorporated, Government Systems, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Raytheon Company, Space and Airborne Systems, El Segundo, California, are each being awarded a $47 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the Trinity Program, which seeks to develop a "navigation warfare sensor" that could replace traditional Global Positioning System receivers on a variety of Department of Defense platforms, resulting in a significant increase in the number of future weapon systems operating in highly challenged electromagnetic environments, having the capability to support electronic support operations as a part of planned missions. Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.
