The Army Contracting Command has drafted a solicitation notice for a potential $78 million contract for the procurement of two non-developmental tactical unmanned aerial systems and related logistics support services.
A draft request for proposals posted July 2 on FedBizOpps says the contracting effort is part of the ACC-Aberdeen Proving Ground Natick Contracting Division's plan to buy demonstrate group 2/3 operational UAS for two Army units.
The demonstration seeks to address requirements stated in the 82nd Airborne Division's operational needs statements and help define criteria for the service branch's Future UAS Initial Capabilities Document.
The Army will launch the project in support of the Future Vertical Lift Cross Functional Team.
According to the notice, the firm-fixed-price contract will include training, maintenance, sustainment and operational support work.
Interested parties can submit feedback on the draft RFP through Aug. 1.
