This acquisition is issued as a Request for Quote. (iii) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are tho se in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-00001. (iv) The associated NAICS code is 332995. The small business size standard is 500 employees. (v)The following is a list of contract line item number(s) and items, quantities and units of measur e, (including option(s), if applicable): CLIN 0001, SERVICE: PROCESSING OF U-V-X ALLOY INGOTS CLIN 0002, CONTRACTOR MANPOWER (vi) Description of requirements: The above service is being solicited as a sole source to Aerojet Ordnance Tennessee, 1367 Old State Route 34, Jonesborough, TN 37659. The services to be rendered in accordance with the statement of work is as follows: Processing Development of U-V-X Alloys for Optimization of Mechanical Properties C.1 BACKGROUND: Previous development work over the last few years at Aerojet for the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has produced new alloys with interesting properties and test prototypes for ballistic evaluation at ARL. This work should be continued to determine if the high strength and excellent properties can be successfully produced in large diameter rod stock with acceptable levels of residual stress for full scale kinetic energy penetrators. As the strength increases in these alloys, there is a necessary increase i n residual stress if conventional heat treat and quench processes are used. A new two stage quench process may reduce the residual stress from quenching and produce full scale rods with fewer tendencies for quench cracks and delayed quench cracks. This wo rk addresses this goal using new alloys, known as stakalloy, referenced in US Patent 6726876. C.2 REQUIREMENTS: C.2.1 Fabrication of Currently Available Material: At its facility, the Contractor has material previously alloyed as Heat V018 rods under Contract DAAE30-00-D-1010. The Contractor shall use conventional or modified processes to forge or High Energy Rate Form (HERF) the rods from the aforementioned contra ct. - C.2.2 Heat Treatment Process Development: a. Using materials from C.2.1, the Contractor shall develop a heat treatment process that minimizes residual stress in rods using a two-stage quench process. b. The Contractor shall experiment with geometric and power setting parameters to control the new two-stage quench with aim of optimizing the process to produce material with minimum residual stress and optimum mechanical properties. C.2.3 Communications: The Contractor shall determine the exact number of items required in C.2.1-2 and the exact number of trials to optimize the process or material. The Contractor shall provide its plan to execute this contract with the Contracting Officers Representative ( COR) and Alternate COR in weekly phone communication as the work develops/progresses and prior to executing any of the effort. C.3 DELIVERABLES: The Contractor shall submit all deliverables/reports, including raw data, in hard copy, disk, or via secure communications only. E-Mail submissions are authorized, only if followed by hard copy submissions. C.3.1 The Contractor shall deliver 50 full scale rods fabricated from Heat V018. C.3.2 The Contractor shall deliver 200 quarter scale rods with L/D of 15 and 25. C.3.3 The Contractor shall submit a report describing the heat treatment parameters used for the samples. C.3.4 The Contractor shall submit a rough draft of the final report within 3 months of completion of the contract and follow this rough draft by a f inal report within 6 months after completing the contract. This report shall give all results, data working parameters of the processes developed during the course of the contract. C.3.5 The Contractor shall deliver the rods to: US Army Research Laboratory, Bldg. 434, ATTN: Dr. Michael Staker, W813LT-6348-7019, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD 21005 C.4 CONTRACTOR MANPOWER REPORTING: The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Manpower & Reserve Affairs) operates and maintains a secure Army data collection site where the contractor shall report ALL contractor manpower (including subcontractor manpower) required for performance o f this contract. The contractor is required to completely fill in all the information in the format using the following web address https://contractormanpower.army.pentagon.mil .
