DESCRIPTION:

The Global Positioning System (GPS) Wing (GPSW) at the Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB) Space and Missile System Center (SMC) intends to host Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) Industry Day #3 on 27-29 July 2010. The General Session will be held on 27 July 2010 beginning at 0800 at The Aerospace Corporation, located at 2310 El Segundo Blvd, El Segundo, CA 90245-4609 in building A9, conference room Titan IVB. The goal of MGUE is to develop, integrate, and produce M-code capable; GPS receivers for the designated lead service platforms specified in the draft MGUE Capability Development Document (CDD) dated 15 December 2009. These platforms encompass Air (e.g. F-15E, Precision Guided Munitions (PGM)), Ground (Raven, Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)) and Maritime (Arleigh-Burke Class Destroyer (DDG)) domains, as well as a new military handheld unit with modernized GPS capability and improved human-machine interface (HMI) features.

Under the emerging MGUE acquisition strategy, the GPSW is considering awarding contracts for the development and certification of production ready GPS receiver form factor cards for the for the Raven, EFV, F-15E, and DDG platforms that leverage existing technologies to the maximum extent to reduce development risks. Upon successful certification and operational tests/assessments, the GPSW intends to award Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and Full Rate Production (FRP) options for these form factors. The GPSW intends to pursue an Offeror specified production ready Common GPS Module (CGM) prototype with an option for FRP upon successful Government evaluation. In addition, the GPSW intends to pursue PGM and Handheld prototype developments and demonstrations leveraging the technologies developed in the production ready form factors and CGM described above.

MGUE Industry Day #3 will provide an overview briefing of current MGUE acquisition strategy, contracting approach, requirements, interfaces, and risks. In addition, the GPSW has attached preliminary draft elements of the upcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) for industry feedback. After the briefing, MGUE will lead discussions to solicit feedback from attendees. The GPSW is particularly interested in feedback from prospective Prime contractors for the contract effort. Contractor teams will be afforded an opportunity to meet with GPSW personnel in scheduled one-on-one sessions, to discuss topics they may not want to publically discuss during the overview briefing. However, the GPSW intends to publicize all recommended changes that could affect revisions to the RFP.
