THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY. THERE IS NO SOLICITATION PACKAGE AVAILABLE. The following information is provided to assist the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAVAIR) Lakehurst, NJ in conducting market research of industry for the procurement of the Gripper Shot Bag. This required support equipment is used for measurements on the horizontal stabilizer for the P-8A aircraft. This will fill deficits for the United States Navy, Royal Australian Air Force, partner countries and Foreign Military Sales customers. At this time, pending market research results, NAVAIR Lakehurst, NJ intends to negotiate on a non-competitive basis with the Sandbag Store 2752 Abels Lane, Las Vegas, NV. The Sandbag Store is the original equipment manufacturer that solely developed and designed the Gripper Shot Bag to be used on the P-8A aircraft. The Government does not possess the engineering data rights and drawings for this support equipment.
