Special Notice
Added: Dec 07, 2011 5:03 pm

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition (OTIA) is developing a requirement for Integrated Fixed Tower (IFT) systems and intends to issue a solicitation on a full and open competition basis to procure fully-integrated, non-developmental IFT systems that encompass open system architecture to be used by United States Border Patrol (USBP) Agents. 

The IFT systems will assist agents in detecting, tracking, identifying and classifying items of interest along our Nation's borders through a series of fixed sensor towers and command and control center equipment that displays information on a common operating picture (COP).  The procurement will consist of surveillance equipment (e.g., ground surveillance radars and surveillance cameras) mounted on fixed (i.e., stationary) tower(s); all necessary power generation and communications equipment to support these tower sites; and command and control (C2) center equipment (including one or more operator workstations) capable of displaying information received from surveillance towers on a COP.
(see Special Notice: HSBP011RSWBTS date posted 01/27/11 and IFT RFI: HSBP0111RIFT for additional reference)  

Pursuant to FAR 15.201(d), this Special Notice publicizes and releases a draft Request for Proposal (RFP) (see attached) to solicit industry feedback and comments. (NOTE: Please ensure that questions in Section L of the draft RFP are addressed). 

Please be advised that the information provided in this notice is subject to change and is not binding on the Government.  Any submissions become the property of the Federal Government, and will not be returned."
