Description: This notice is a follow-on to Sources Sought Notice N00019-09-P7-ZD217, dated 21 April 2009, and Presolicitation Notice N00019-10-R-0052, dated 04 March 2010, for the Common Multi-Purpose Aircraft Information Recording System (CMPAIRS), which is now referred to as the Advanced Digital Data Set (ADDS). The Naval Air Systems Command Air Combat Electronics Program Office (PMA-209) is seeking potential interested sources who have the skills, experience, qualifications and knowledge required to successfully develop and provide a common, centrally-managed Family of Systems (FoS) utilizing a Modular Open System Approach (MOSA) of a high-capacity data loader/digital recorder combining the capabilities identified by OPNAVINST 13210.1A into a multifunctional solution. Additionally, NAVAIR is exploring the possibility of establishing this requirement as a small business set aside. This system will likely consist of three Weapons Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs). ADDS FOS capabilities will include Data Loading and Recording (DL/DR), a Crash Survivable Memory/Recorder (CSR), and a Mission Processor and Memory resource. ADDS will be integrated with aircraft mission systems on a wide array of DoN Type, Model, and Series (T/M/S) aircraft using data structures and interfaces that are common across all Navy T/M/S aircraft. Depending upon user aircraft defined requirements, ADDS capabilities will be combined in different configurations within the ADDS FOS. Potential offerors are advised that ADDS will require National Security Agency (NSA) Type 1 certification.
