The U.S. Army has issued a request for information on potential providers of electronic countermeasures support services to the military branch’s explosive ordnance disposal mission.
A FedBizOpps notice posted Tuesday says the electronic warfare air/ground survivability division at the Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center needs assistance to conduct laboratory tests with the EWAGS Coaxial Test Bed.
The division also seeks contractor support to perform anechoic chamber and field tests, facilitate training and demonstration events, identify threats and ensure interoperability between EOD and ECM systems.
Possible support personnel should have the ability to test ECM on mounted and dismounted platforms, analyze radio controlled improvised explosive devices and understand EOD ECM system capacities and limitations.
Interested vendors have until Dec. 21 to submit a white paper or documentation that must include cost and schedule estimates for task completion.
