Navy considers Meggitt for MEMS retard sensors designed to measure bomb fuze deceleration

Posted by John Keller

INDIAN HEAD, Md., 3 July 2013. U.S. Navy munitions experts needed Micro-Electromechanical System (MEMS)-based retard sensors to function as prototypes to measure deceleration in a bomb fuze for Navy air weapon applications. They found their solution from Meggitt PLC in Bournemouth, England.

Researchers at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division in Indian Head, Md., announced their intention to award a non-competitive firm fixed price purchase order to Meggitt for the MEMS retard sensors. The value of the contract has yet to be negotiated.

Although Navy officials say they are not necessarily asking for competitive proposals, they are inviting companies with similar MEMS technology to submit capability statements no later than 10 July 2013.

Companies interested should email capability statements to the Navy's Jodi Fields at Jodi.fields@navy.mil. Navy researchers will use the information they receive to decide whether or not to conduct a competitive procurement, officials say.

For questions or concerns contact the Navy's Jodi Fields by phone at 301-744-6544, or by email at Jodi.fields@navy.mil. More information is online at http://www.fbodaily.com/archive/2013/06-June/27-Jun-2013/FBO-03098767.htm.
