The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Flight Program Operations is conducting a Market Survey/Request for Information (RFI) for planning purposes for a requirement to upgrade the avionics suites currently installed in the FAAas Bombardier CL-604 aircraft to add ADS-B out V2. The FAA is requesting a rough order of magnitude (ROM) of the cost, systems/equipment, and time necessary to accomplish the upgrade and get required approvals necessary to make this aircraft flight ready (See Attachment A). This modification/ installation will add the FAA 2020 mandated ADS-B equipment on this aircraft and be able to meet FAA and ICAO 2020 compliant aircraft avionics ADS-B Out mandates.

The most critical estimate is for the cost and time it will take to complete the upgrade on this aircraft, taking into consideration cost of engineering, time and cost of de-installation of old systems, taking out old wiring and installation of new cabling harness, time and cost to install the new equipment, time and cost of systems integration of the remaining old systems that are required to work with the newly installed avionics equipment/systems, and time and cost to obtain the required certifications to have the aircraft flying fully certified.

As stated above, this Market Survey is requesting information from vendors that are currently in the business of upgrading and modifying general aviation jet aircraft to meet the FAAas 2020 ADS-B Out mandate. The information being requested at this time is for planning purposes only and for the development of a source list. The FAA needs good cost and time estimations on what the cost will be and how much time and effort it will take to bring the FAAas Challenger 604 aircraft up to a level that they can continue to fly another 10 to 15 years and meet both FAA and ICAO avionics standards. As a part of this Market Survey, we ask that vendoras complete and provide information on Attachment A to this survey. The information needs to be provided as a Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM). This form requests information on cost of non-recurring engineering required for STC preparation and submittal for approval, time and cost of old systems/equipment removal, time and cost for installation of new equipment /Systems wiring and cabling upgraded, and time and cost to install the new avionics systems/equipment on the aircraft and meet the FAA and ICAO requirements for 2020 flights in the U.S. or anywhere in the world. Please provide the information requested on the Attachment A to this market survey. This information will be used in development of sources for possible sources for this installation. Any information provided will be determined to be proprietary to each vendor if provided with proprietary markings and will only be seen by FAA personnel and will not be released.

The responses to this market survey will be used for informational purposes only. The purpose of this market survey is to solicit statements of interest/capability and a ROM from small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, 8(a) certified firms, and all other business types and sizes, capable of providing the requirement described.

THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS OR OFFERS. A SIR/Request for Offer may be made under a separate announcement in the future. The FAA is not seeking or accepting unsolicited proposals. The FAA will not pay for any information received or costs incurred in preparing vendor responses to this market survey. Therefore any cost associated with a market survey submission is solely at the interested vendoras expense.
