Navy Releases Final RFP for Seabed-to-Space ISR Tech Dev’t Effort

The U.S. Navy has issued the final solicitation for development and fielding services to support the military branch’s deployment of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies for seabed-to-space operations.

Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific intends to develop, engineer, and sustain ISR and information operations systems that may operate along with unmanned platforms for activities involving chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear technologies, according to a notice posted Wednesday on the beta SAM website.

Contract work may include technical services such as research, analysis, algorithm development, repairs, system engineering and cybersecurity support.

The contractor may also perform services onboard afloat vessels with allied nations as part of the effort.

ISR technologies involved in the initiative may include tactical data communications platforms, satellite terminals, autonomous systems or nonautonomous platforms for air, land, sea and space missions.

The Navy plans to award a potential five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the effort.

Interested parties must submit responses to the request for proposals through Nov. 4.
