The Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NAVEODTECHDIV) has a need to procure a Modified Over Ground Access Sensor (OGAS) locator system suitable for Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Special Operations Forces (SOF), and Naval SOF (NAVSOF), dismounted operations. An OGAS is required to provide visual and electronic detection to SOF/NAVSOF as they conduct countermine efforts. Most Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) OGAS locator systems currently in use by EOD forces are designed for Humanitarian Demining (HD); therefore, these detectors are not intended for dismounted operations. Speed and mobility are integral to the countermine mission. No capability is currently available in a handheld form factor that can detect/locate and provide the data needed to allow the EOD and NAVSOF/SOF operators to avoid Low Magnetic Content (LMC)/No Magnetic Content (NMC) objects.

Market research indicates that current COTS OGAS locators could be redesigned with less weight and size for dismounted operations without losing capability. This requirement is for a modified COTS locator system to meet the requirements of the OGAS locator system and deliver to the Government for testing and user assessment. Additional specifications will be available with the solicitation.

A firm-fixed price contract is anticipated. This requirement will be a small business set-aside. The contract will include three phases for the following:

Phase I: The Government intends to award two awardees for Phase I for 4 Prototypes.

Phase II: The Government will select one of the two Prototypes awardees to enter Phase II for 10 Production Representative Model (PRM)/Production Systems (Option)

Phase III: System Delivery (Option of 50 Units upon approval of the First Article testing).
