The U.S. Army looks for a supplier of velocity detection technology that can help the military branch evaluate ballistic materials alongside its projectile acceleration equipment.
The Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center's warfighter directorate will implement the tool to detect striking and residual velocity of various projectiles in order to send an output signal that will serve as a trigger upon the capture of striking velocity, U.S. Federal Contractor Registration said Monday.
The military branch seeks input from HUBZone, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses and women-owned small businesses.
NSRDEC requires certain specifications for the velocity detection equipment such as a velocity from nearly 0-5,000 feet per second, a trigger signal output when a velocity is measured and projectile detection system made of steel.
Responses to the sources sought notice are due Nov. 10.
