TITLE: HIGH SPEED STRIKE WEAPON (HSSW) DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM AND AFRL TECHNOLOGY MATURATION PLANS INDUSTRY DAY 1


I. EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate, Contracting Division (AFRL/RWK) announces an Industry Day for an anticipated future acquisition for the High Speed Strike Weapon (HSSW) Demonstration Program to be held on 27 June 2012 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am CDT at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

Additionally, on 28 June 2012 from 8:30 to 11:30 am CDT the Government will host a briefing on AFRL Technology Maturation Plans at the Eglin AFB Conference Center.

Any formal solicitation will be announced at a later date.


II. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


(1) HSSW Demonstration Program Objective: The High Speed Strike Weapon is an AFRL demonstration of a Mach 5+ (i.e.,hypersonic) velocity weapon capable of holding fixed and relocatable targets (i.e., time critical targets) at risk from tactically relevant standoff distances in tactically relevant timelines. The demonstration program will integrate and flight test a demonstrator weapon accelerated by a booster to an appropriate Mach number/airspeed condition to allow for air breathing propulsion for the remainder of the mission. Guidance and control systems will present the weapon to representative targets at lethal proximities and simulate detonation of a mock warhead and/or detonate a live warhead. As a minimum, lethal mechanisms compatible with the air vehicle will be evaluated in ground test.


(2) AFRL Technology Maturation Objective: The Air Force Research Laboratory is investing in HSSW Technology Maturation with the intent of advancing the readiness levels of ordnance, guidance, materials, and propulsion. The results of the AFRL Technology Maturation investment may be of benefit to the HSSW Demonstration if the Technology Readiness Levels are sufficiently advanced. Also, these results may be integrated into any follow-on efforts. A presentation will be offered during the morning of 28 June to describe the AFRL HSSW Technology Maturation process and discuss the areas that are being pursued.


(3) Other Requirements:


a. The HSSW requirement contains classified elements that will be presented at the Industry Day event; therefore, attendees are required to have, at a minimum, a SECRET level security clearance in order to attend. See Section V - Agency Contacts, Paragraph (2) for further details on how to submit a visit request.


b. There is potential program information that can be made available to contractors after Industry Day. To receive the technical data package, the contractor must be certified to receive military critical technical data under the US/Canada Joint Certification Program (JCP) (www.dlis.dla.mil/jcp). To request the technical data package, submit an email to request release of export-controlled data related to the HSSW Demonstration program to afrl.rwk.hsswdemo@eglin.af.mil.
