This Request for Information (RFI) & Industry Day Public Announcement is for the Mode S Beacon Replacement System (MSBRS). The FAA is planning to host an Industry Day on August 29, 2017 in Washington DC. This Industry Day is a follow-up to Market Survey a Mode Select (Mode S) Market Survey Announcement 22758, originally released October 15, 2015.

This is not a Request for Offer (RFO). The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will use responses to this RFI-Public Announcement for informational purposes only. The FAA is not seeking, nor accepting, unsolicited proposals. The FAA will not pay for any information received or cost incurred in preparing any response to this RFI-Public Announcement.

This announcement may be updated to provide additional information to support the facilitation of the Industry Day. Associated background information may also be included as updates to this announcement.

I. Purpose

The purpose of this RFI-Public Announcement is to announce the Industry Day for the MSBRS anticipated procurement, release the draft MSBRS Statement of Work (SOW) and System Specification Document (SSD), and solicit industry input and comments regarding the planned acquisition of a MSBRS. This is an effort to promote open communication with vendors to improve the quality of the subsequent Screening Information Request/Request for Offer (SIR/RFO).

The FAA anticipates the award of a new contract for MSBRS to replace the current system below the rotary joint. This contract will be to design, develop, test, implement and support the MSBRS to meet all requirements in the FAA MSBRS SSD, FAA-E-7716, and the subsequent SIR/RFO and SOW. The MSBRS will be deployed at a subset of the 137 legacy Mode S locations that include all En Route Radars (Common Air Route Surveillance Radar (CARSR) and Beacon Only) and a subset of approximately 45 Terminal (Airport Surveillance Radar a Model 9 (ASR-9) locations. The FAA is expecting to use a Commercial Off-The-Shelf/Non-Developmental Items (COTS/NDI) system to the maximum extent practicable to replace the legacy Mode-S System. This contract will include provisions for Program Management, System Engineering, System Design, System Development, System Test and Evaluation, Training, Production, Implementation, Integrated Logistic Support, Engineering Services, Disposal and General Engineering/Technical Services. For additional background information please see Attachment 7 - Mode S MSBRS Industry Day Overview.

Based on the information received from the Market Survey previously posted on October 15, 2015 the FAA has made a determination to conduct this procurement under a afull and opena? competitive process. The FAA intends to incorporate the agency small business goals as a small business subcontracting requirement in the awarded contract.

The FAA is planning to hold an Industry Day on August 29, 2017 at the location in Washington, D.C. as specified in Section II. During this meeting Industry participants will be provided more information on the program, acquisition, concept of operations and requirements.
