This is a Request for Information (RFI) for planning purposes, as part of a market survey led by the Navy Program Executive Office for Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons [PEO (U&W)]. It is NOT a Request for Proposals. NO SOLICITATION DOCUMENTS EXIST AT THIS TIME.



The Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (DCNO) for Information Dominance (N2/N6) has identified a need for an aircraft carrier based aircraft system providing persistent Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and strike capabilities that will enhance the versatility provided by an aircraft carrier. Over the next ten years, Navy investment will focus on defining requirements and beginning development of an unmanned capability to achieve this enhanced versatility.



The Navy is interested in information on carrier based, low observable (LO) Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) concepts optimized for Irregular and Hybrid Warfare scenarios, capable of integrating with manned platforms as part of the Carrier Air Wing (CVW) by the end of 2018 to support limited operations in contested scenarios. The UAS should enhance situational awareness and shorten the time it takes to find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess time sensitive targets. This RFI is intended to determine the existence of sources that can provide a limited inventory of systems capable of being operated by fleet Sailors and performing the above mentioned Navy UAS mission.



Attached to this announcement is a complete version of this RFI to include constraints, content of RFI responses, security and submission information, additional information, and points of contact.
