This is a SOURCES SOUGHT MARKET SURVEY. THERE IS NO SOLICITATION AVAILABLE
AT THIS TIME. REQUESTS FOR A SOLICITATION WILL NOT RECEIVE A RESPONSE. Any
information submitted by respondents to this synopsis is strictly voluntary.
This market survey does not constitute a Request for Proposals (RFP) or a
request for sealed bids (IFB), nor does its issuance restrict the Government

any information that they submit in response to this Sources Sought request.
The United States Army CECOM LCMC is conducting this sources sought market
survey to determine pricing from potential sources capable of fulfilling a

This is a market survey to locate sources who can provide either CONUS
(Florida, Arizona, or Maryland) or OCONUS (Pakistan) training on a new
Ground Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (GISR) system developed
by DRS Technologies. The system provides rapid detection and localization
of a wide-range of threat signals, monitors signals of interest, and
supports real-time analysis to provide mission-critical intelligence to the
warfighter. The system consists of a combination of 3 or more subsystems
each consisting of; a manpackable direction finding (DF) and homing VHF/UHF
receiver, a handheld computer, DF and communications antennas, handheld
radio for communications and internetworking, a video transmitting air to
ground microwave communications system, a vehicular mounting kit for on the
move operations, and a sophisticated signals analysis node hosted on a
laptop computer and connected via radio. The training should include the
following topics;

TRAINING TOPICS:
. Instruction on techniques of detection, tracking, DF, and
geolocation of Radio VHF/UHF Signals using small receivers and small
aperture antennas
. Achieving Networking and conducting voice communications using
Harris RF-5800 handheld radios
. Instruction on placing into operation and conducting missions with
Manpack DF Hardware
. Vehicular DF Hardware Description/Operation
. Analysis Node Description/Operation
. Operate GISR Systems in Vehicular Configuration
. Analysis Node Vehicle Installation Training
. Operator Level Maintenance Training
. Operator Level Troubleshooting
. Training includes classroom and field operations in terrain with
representative features and scope

SUPPORT DETAILS:
