SUBJECT: Market research is being conducted to identify potential sources that may possess the expertise, capabilities, and experience to meet the requirements for qualification and production of the Sniper, LANTIRN, and IRST components listed in the table above.


ITEM DESCRIPTION:

The Sniper ATP has been integrated with the F-15 Aircraft to provide electro-optical and infrared imagery for the RSAF operator. These pods provide target acquisition and designation in air-to-ground modes adequate to employ weapons at maximum range. Additionally, Sniper must perform with little or no degradation in the presence of battlefield obstructions and enhance interoperability between the USAF and the RSAF FMS customer. Sniper ATP provides laser spot search and track capability beyond maximum weapons employment envelope sufficient to provide 30 seconds of acquisition time for all weapons employment options. It also provides a laser marker that can be detected with night vision goggles by a ground or air controller with sufficient brightness and accuracy to visually confirm weapons at point prior to maximum weapons employment release. The LANTIRN NP is a low-level navigation system that uses terrain following radar to detect obstacles in the flight path for the aircrew during the day, night, or adverse weather conditions, and IRST provides situational awareness of airborne threats and targets.



Impediment to Competition:


The original equipment manufacturer for these items is Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC) (Cage Code 04939). The Government does not have unlimited rights to the latest data, drawings, schematics, or any other releasable technical data in support of this requirement. As a result, LMMFC is the only known source with adequate knowledge of the Sniper, LANTIRN, and IRST Sensor Suite performance requirements and possession of the required technical data and capabilities needed to produce this item and ensure compatibility of the equipment.


INTEREST:


The DLA/WR Contracting Office intends to award a sole source contract to LMMFC for the manufacture of the Sniper, LANTIRN, and IRST equipment in support of the Precision Attack Program. Other interested parties may identify their interest and capability to respond to the requirement no later than 16 Oct 2017 via email to dla.dlr.proc@us.af.mil. The Government intends to procure these items using Other Than Full and Open Competition as prescribed by FAR 6.302-1, Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements.
