The purpose of this modification is to republish the technical description of the announcement in order to provide a more detailed description of the technology being researched. The technical description is replaced as follows: Air Force Research Laboratory Rome Research Site (AFRL RRS) is soliciting white papers for various scientific studies and experiments to increase AFRL?s knowledge and understanding of the broad range of capabilities required in support of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of warfighting techniques, equipment and capabilities. Solutions to transitional research and engineering using innovative approaches will be sought. The scope of this effort primarily focuses on supporting the mission [Produce Integrated, Predictive Air and Space Intelligence to Enable Military Operations, Force Modernization and Policymaking] of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NAIC) located at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, OH. White papers in the area of Modeling and Simulation science, as applied to: Air and Space Systems [e.g. Terrestrial/Space Communications Network Modeling Tools, etc.], Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), Space-Based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (SBISR) sensors are requested. This BAA covers a broad range of requirements/topics which specifically include, but are not limited to: improved real-time decision-making (advanced information visualization/animation and data integration tools); spectral library (adaptive signature generation) development for paint degradation and seasonal vegetation change spectral libraries, etc.); predictive assessments [Unorthodox High Speed Propulsion Performance Analysis Tools (e.g. Pulsed Detonation Model, Air Turbo Rocket Model, Turbo-Ramjet Model and SCRAM Jet Model, etc.)]; Hard and Deeply Buried Target (HDBT/WMD-WME) Detection [using MASINT, Hyperspectral (HSI), SAR, SLAR, thermal, spectral, terrain map comparison analysis technologies (e.g. LANDSAT data), airborne / space technologies development, etc.] for detection/visualization of Underground Facilities (UGF)/HDBTs. Also areas covering: Radio Frequency (RF) Weapons and Laser Weapons Modeling, Advanced Analysis Capabilities for Integrated Avionics Systems/Suites, Missile System Threat Analysis Tools (Booster and Post Boost Upgrades); and Information In Warfare (IIW) are also required. Ideas on theoretical foundations of decision science/environments: modeling of cognitive processes; Centers Of Gravity (COG) analysis; Courses Of Action (COA) analysis; Effects Based Operations (EBO); Situation Assessment (SA); Predictive Battlespace Awareness (PBA); Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace (IPB); Battlespace Production (BP) Technique/Objective(s) Models; Common Operational Picture (COP); Information Operations (IO) / Information Warfare (IW); etc. are also requested. AFRL RRS requires solutions sufficient to meet the needs of the Air Force in particular the: National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NAIC), Air Force Information Warfare Center (AFIWC), Air Intelligence Agency (AIA), Air Combat Command (ACC), Joint Warfare Analysis Center (JWAC), and Air Force Battle Labs, etc. Some general areas of interest are: modeling cognitive processes, real-time decision making, M&S in distributed mission training, information visualization/animation, M&S for war-gaming/"pre-planning"/exercise rehearsal support, and specific Air and Space Systems Intelligence Mission Applications (IMA). Emphasis is placed on immediate technology transfer/technology insertion of mature technologies (capable of being directly transitioned with minimal R&D enhancement rework) into Air Force operational environments which directly support the war fighter. All other details of the original announcement starting from, "THIS ANNOUCEMENT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY SOLICITATION?" remains the same. Questions prior to the submission of a proposal can continue to be addressed to the technical POC's, Donald J. Gondek, Program Manager, Phone (315) 330-3678, E-Mail: Donald.Gondek@rl.af.mil or Kenneth J. Sherman, Program Manager, Phone (315) 330-7198, E-Mail: Kenneth.Sherman@rl.af.mil. Questions, clarification, or concerns from offerors or potential offerors during the proposal development phase of this acquisition should be communicated directly to the IFKA Contracting Officer, Renee Arcuri, telephone (315) 330-4777 or e-mail Renee.Arcuri@rl.af.mil.
