Army wants ideas from industry on how to place communications and EW systems on vehicles without co-location interference

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., 13 May 2012. U.S. Army radio frequency (RF) experts are reaching out to industry for ideas on how to place RF communications and electronic warfare (EW) systems near one another on vehicles without causing RF interference.

The Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) of the Army Research Development and Engineering Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., issued a sources-sought notice (W15P7T12RA229) last week asking companies to identify themselves tat are able to provide mitigation techniques, for co-located communications systems and EW systems.

Army researches are interested in investigating all classes of deconfliction solutions -- not just those that to date have been successful in reducing EW and communication interference -- and test them for the best solutions. Researchers want to hear from companies with technology that can mitigate interoperability issues caused by co-located communications and EW systems.

Researchers are interested in solutions involving algorithms, protocols, techniques, or processes. Solutions not only must maintain the full capability of communications systems and EW systems when co-located on a vehicle, but also should be applicable to existing communications and EW systems.

CERDEC researchers say industry should consider developing an optimization algorithm or hardware and software process to enable future communications and EW systems to collaborate on the most appropriate deconfliction action.

Companies interested should respond no later than 31 July 2012 with detailed descriptions of how offerings will assess the deconfliction solutions and develop techniques including hardware and software to mitigate the communications and EW spectral conflicts.

Companies should provide the names, telephone numbers, fax numbers, street addresses and e-mail addresses for program, technical and cost points of contact. Qualified vendors must have expert knowledge of Army communications systems or electronic warfare systems and possess a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) secret facility clearance. Based on submissions, Army researchers may conduct a conference or one-on-one discussions with industry at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

To respond, e-mail information to the Army's Ken Roman at ken.r.roman@us.army.mil. For questions or concerns, contact Ken Roman by phone at 443-861-0129, or by e-mail at ken.r.roman@us.army.mil. Send responses electronically to the Army Single Face for Industry (ASFI) at https://acquisition.army.mil/asfi.
