WASHINGTON- U.S. Navy RF and microwave radio communications experts are kicking-off a research program to develop dual microwave and millimeter-wave shipboard antennas capable of transmitting in the 4- to 40-GHz frequency range.
Officials of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington announced a plan to issue a formal solicitation (N00173-17-R-GB01) for the Dual Microwave and Millimeter Wave Antennas project.
This project will ask one industry contractor to design, test, and deliver dual microwave and millimeter-wave antennas that transmit in the 4- to 40-GHz frequency range. The effort has three parts:
- design and installation of 10 preliminary antennas within three months of the contract award;
- delivery of one pair (forward and aft) prototype antennas within six months of contract award; and
- delivery of three pairs (forward and aft) antennas within one year of contract award.
To be eligible for submitting a bid, companies must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database, which is online at /www.sam.gov/portal/SAM/##11#1#1. E-mail questions or concerns to the NRL's Bruce Gunther at [email protected], or Leigh Kellstrom at [email protected].
