This is a Pre-Solicitation Notice for the U.S. Army Contracting Command - Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) Solicitation No. W15P7T-13-R-5005, which serves as a notification to industry of procurement of Non-Developmental Item (NDI) products to meet the requirements of the Small Airborne Networking Radio (SANR) system for Army Aviation platforms. SANR is intended as a two-channel, software-defined, National Security Agency (NSA) Type 1 networking radio providing seamless real-time information operating in highly mobile and dynamic combat environments, although a four-channel system may be considered. SANR will replace the current Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) capability, and provide new Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) and Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) capability offering voice and data networking capability and increased data throughput to Army Aviation platforms. The Government will not consider developmental products, as market research has verified that the SANR requirements can be met using only NDI or modified NDI products.

The anticipated date for release of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP) is on or about 18 October 2013. The anticipated date for release of the formal RFP is approximately forty-five (45) days after release of the draft RFP, but this date may be subject to change. A separate notice for the draft RFP, and subsequently for the formal RFP, will be posted with response dates and instructions as applicable to this solicitation.

The Government's intent is to solicit and award, via full and open competition, two Firm Fixed Price/Cost Plus Fixed Fee hybrid type contracts with a One-Year base period and four (4) One-Year option periods. After contract award, the Government intends to subsequently make a down-select to a single contractor for delivery of the Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and Full Rate Production (FRP) quantities of SANR systems, spares, and associated support. The Government will reserve the right to exercise LRIP and FRP quantities of SANR systems, spares, and associated support under both contracts if it is determined to be in its best interest.

It is the Government's intent to award the two contracts in a manner that results in the best value to Government using a trade off process.

Based on market research, the Government is not utilizing Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 12.

The above discussed intent is subject to change.

If your company is interested in this planned procurement, then it is advised that you monitor the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website at HTTP://WWW.FBO.GOV.

The response date indicated on this synopsis does not require a response from industry. DO NOT submit any documentation / proposals / letters of any kind in response to this synopsis.

Formal communications related to this acquisition shall be submitted by email to donald.w.morgan3.civ@mail.mil. No telephone requests will be accepted.

All communications SHALL be submitted ONLY in writing AND directly to the email address identified above. Contractors shall not contact any other Government Personnel other than the person identified above. Contacting any Government personnel other than the individual identified above could result in an organizational conflict of interest (OCI) and could result in an offeror being excluded from competition and/or award.
