The Space and Naval Warfare SystemsCenter Atlantic (SSC-Atlantic) is

soliciting information seeking solutions

for Magnetic Intrusion Detector, Version

II (MAGID-II) for use with the Marine

Corps Tactical Remote Sensor Systems

System-of-System (TRSS SoS) and the

Ground Based Operational Surveillance

System (GBOSS). The MAGID-II is a

component of the TRSS SoS

Unattended Ground Sensor Set

(UGSS). The TRSS SoS uses hand-

emplaced sensors to support the field

commanders intelligence collection

effort by providing continuous, wide

area surveillance of the battlefield.

The magnetic detector is used to

detect the presence of vehicles and

weapons containing ferrous metals

moving within its detection range. The

MAGID-II shall detect and measure

disturbances in electromagnetic fields

and indicate the direction of travel of

the object which stimulated it.

Detections and measurements from

the MAGID-II are sent to a cable-

connected Encoder Transmitter Unit,

Version II (ETU-II) for Radio Frequency

(RF) transmission to sensor monitoring

systems.

Fifty MAGID-IIs will be deployed with

each of the thirty-two Unattended

Ground Sensor Sets (UGSS) totaling

1600 TRSS SoS units; the remaining

1829 will be deployed with GBOSS and

held in the Federal Supply System as

spares. The MAGID-II shall be a self

contained immersion-proof electronic

assembly. The MAGID-II will connect

to the Encoder Transmitter Unit version

II (ETU-II) via an integrated 96 inch

(+/- 6 inches) cable with a 13-pin

connector and shall be permanently

affixed to the detector. The MAGID-II

shall use a MIL-C-38999P Series II

receptacle with pins keyed with

alternate shell position A with a size

10 shell and 13 contacts, designated

P1 and shall have a dust cap with

lanyard that is capable of mating with

the J3 receptacle of the ETU-II. The

MAGID-II shall also respond to

identification messages. The MAGID-II

shall have sufficient memory to

support a 100% firmware growth and

be capable of accepting necessary

firmware upgrades in order to support

evolutionary and technological

upgrades of the TRSS SoS/GBOSS

without hardware modifications. Future

capabilities desired to be implemented

through firmware upgrades, without

need for additional hardware changes,

are: target positioning relative to

magnetic north; and

sensitivity/detection range

adjustment. The MAGID-II shall be

capable of receiving programming

commands and firmware upgrades

through the above mentioned 13-pin

connector cable. The MAGID-II shall

correctly detect and report a targets

direct of travel (left-to-right or right-to-

left) with a minimum detection

confidence of 90% for all targets

spaced at least two seconds apart;

false alarms shall not exceed five per

24 hour period. The MAGID-II

threshold detection range for a mid-

size pick-up truck is 3 to 30 meters

when traveling between 5 and 100

kilometers per hour; Test Fixture A

threshold for personnel detection is 1

to 5 meters when traveling between 2

and 12 kilometers per hour. The

MAGID-II shall correctly report the

mean level of magnetic disturbance

using one of the following values:

Level 1, less than 10; Level 2, 10 to

100; Level 3, 100 to 1,000; Level 4,

1,000 to 10,000; and Level 5, greater

than 10,000. The MAGID-II shall have

a sleep power consumption not greater

than 1 milliwatt, an active (stimulated)

detection/reporting power consumption

not great than 18 milliwatts, and an

initializing power consumption not

greater than 75 milliwatts. The MAGID-

II shall be capable of being switched

from the Sleep Power Consumption

state to the Inactive Power

Consumption state via the serial

interface; and the threshold transition

time shall not exceed 60 seconds to

full capability. The threshold

operational temperature range for the

MAGID-II is -40 Fahrenheit (F) to 140

F; the threshold non-operating

temperature (after exposure to) range

for the MAGID-II is -67 F to 160 F.

The MAGID-II shall be capable of

operating while exposed to 95% non-

condensing humidity and immersion

proof up to 1 meter for 24 hours. The

MAGID-II shall be resistant to the

corrosion effects of marine atmosphere

and salt fallout over land areas;

capable of withstanding exposure to

fine sand and dust particles in 35 knot

winds. The MAGID-II shall withstand

the material degradation effects of

fungi encountered in highly humid

areas. The MAGID-II shall be capable

of operating after being accidentally

dropped onto a solid surface. The

MAGID-II shall require no user

maintenance. The MAGID-II shall

perform an internal self-test that

verifies its magnetic detection circuits

are functional, proper input power is

applied, and the installed firmware

passes an internal checksum test; this

test shall be report via the serial

interface within the first 120 seconds of

initial power-on. The threshold total

cubic volume, including cable, is not

greater than 40 cubic inches and the

threshold weight, including cable, is not

greater than 1 pound. The cables,

connectors, dust caps and lanyard shall

be a lusterless black finish. The

MAGID-II finish color shall be

P510.2AG Green 383 Chemical Agent

Resisting Coating (CARC) per MIL-C-

53039 and color chip 34094 per FED-

STD-595. The MAGID-II shall be

marked in accordance with MIL-STD-

130J. All MAGID-II units shall be

physically, electronically, and

functionally interchangeable.

Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS)

solutions for the MAGID-II, if available,

and in compliance with the specification

are required. Industry firms capable of

accomplishing the required services, in

whole or by teamed effort, are invited
