The U.S. Army has asked industry to supply information on several radar and infrared-based sensor technologies built to provide “quick reaction capability” support to the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency.
The Army Contracting Command said in a FedBizOpps notice published Oct. 5 that JIDA will use the platforms to support its programs against improvised threats, including the use of adaptive techniques, tactics and procedures by adversaries.
The service branch wants information on small size, weight and power synthetic aperture radars, small SWaP-based short-wave and long-wave infrared sensors, land- or aerial-based seismic, acoustics and radar platforms as well as sensors onboard unmanned aerial systems.
JIDA’s improvised threat mission programs also cover commercial-off-the-shelf procurement, integration, COTS technology modification, operational assessment, prototyping, feasibility studies as well as research, development, test and evaluation operations, according to the notice.
Responses to the RFI are due on Nov. 5.
