Program Name: A-10 PE Situation Awareness Data Link (SADL)/IDM Integration Organization: A-10 Systems Squadron Procurement Phase: Pre-Solicitation Classification Code: Category 16 - Aircraft components & accessories NAIC CODE: 336413 Dollar amount: $40,000,000 In accordance with FAR 5.201, this announcement serves the purpose of a notice of contract action and is not intended for RFP issuance. The A-10 Systems Squadron anticipates a sole source acquisition for total integration of the SADL/Enhanced Position Location Reporting System (EPRLS) radio with Improved Data Modem (IDM) to provide EPLRS waveform and Variable Message Format (VMF) capability respectively into the A/OA-10C Aircraft. This effort will include a basic contract to include integration of SADL radios and IDM onto 110 A/OA-10C aircraft with an option of approximately 246 additional A/OA-10C aircraft. No re-procurement data package, tooling, and facilities are available. Program requirements: 1) Group A kit design & fabrication requires: a. Design and integration of radio, modem, processor, and power adapter mounting racks. b. Design and integration of power, antennae, and other necessary cable harnesses. c. Movement and repositioning of avionics LRUs to provide space for installation of an EPLRS radio, power adapter, IDM, and processor which may include, but is not limited to, repositioning of pitot static lines, wire harnesses, power cables, and data bus couplers. d. Thorough knowledge of A-10 systems and avionics integration. e. Electrical loads analysis, safety-hazard analysis, weight and balance analysis, stress and loads analysis, aerodynamic analysis, and environmental analysis to ensure solution design meets required A-10 system specifications. 2) Group B design, fabrication and integration requires: a. Possible power adapter design and fabrication for SADL. Possible processor design and fabrication for IDM. b. Support equipment kit design, fabrication and integration to include thorough knowledge cryptographic processes and procedures. c. Group B components to meet A-10 system specifications. 3) Trial install/kit proof support/kit installation requires: a. Rapid turnaround of engineering changes/approvals between trial install and kit proof installation. b. On-site contractor participation in kit proof and Technical Order (TO) verification. c. A Technical Requirements Document (TRD) to permit stand-alone installation of test/production kits by Contract Field Teams or other government agencies. 4) Core avionics software integration requires: a. An installed system functional demonstration. b. A thorough knowledge of A-10 Operational Flight Program (OFP). c. SADL and IDM software solution integration to latest OFP baseline. 5) Support Equipment (SE) hardware and software requires modification. Kit builds are needed for testing and may require production unit builds. 6) A thorough knowledge of A-10 engineering and avionics systems is required to develop TOs and Time Compliance Technical Orders (TCTO). 7) Ground and flight test support requires: a. Support of Cockpit Review Team (CRT) evaluations in the Systems Integration Laboratory (SIL). b. On site/on call Engineering support 8) Requires unique SADL and IDM spare parts pre-positioned at test sites. 9) Requires delivery of Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) type provisioning data to match USAF legacy supply/item management systems. 10) Requires modification drawings and A/OA-10 Engineering Baseline drawings prepared to Air Force and ASME standards. 11) Requires Interim Contract Support (ICS) both logistics and technical until the Air Force achieves organic support capability. Lockheed Martin Systems Integration-Owego (LMSI), 1801 State Route 17C, Owego, NY 13827-3998, is the expected prime contractor for this effort, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2304 (c) (1).
