LM-MS2 has the knowledge and the resources readily available to meet the compressed timeline and aggressive test schedule. A mature and robust demonstration platform will be required to demonstrate the ATUAS technologies in operationally relevent conditions.

This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. The above information is the Government's rationale for intending to negotiate with only one source, LM-MS2. Interested parties, however, may identify their interest and capability by responding to the requirement. The Government will consider all capability information received prior to the closing date of this synopsis. The capability statement must include a discussion on how the results of any system other than the LM-MS2 developed Autonomous Technologies for Unmanned Air Systems (ATUAS) could be considered non developmental and meeting the threshold objectives of the CENTCOM JOUNS. All capability statements should be submitted to the contracting office address. No phone inquiries will be entertained. Responses shall be made in writing by e-mail, U.S. mail or facsimile to the attention of Ms. Velvet Taylor using the contract information provided in this synopsis.
