SOLE SOURCE REQUIREMENT: The Aircraft Repair & Supply Center (ARSC) performs depot-level repair, modification, Progressive Structural Inspection (PSI) of Coast Guard aircraft, systems, and components. In support of these efforts, ARSC requires a number of electric tow tractors, which are being replaced with new Tug Technologies tow tractors. The tractors require charging equipment to recharge the on-board battery. For optimum tractor performance, the tractor original equipment manufacturer (OEM) recommended and approved the Ametek charger. The USCG is currently using this charger with satisfactory results and maintaining consistency in equipment type would be advantageous to the government. The charger works in concert with the Battery Identification Device (BID) that is installed on the DEKA 80 volt battery installed in the MX4 electric tow tractor during manufacture. The charger and the BID work together to identify the battery being charged, maintains a charging record, identifies each charge cycle to a specific battery, automatically monitors battery temperature during charge to adjust the charging voltage to maximize battery life (opportunity charging) and charges 20% charged batteries up to 80% charge in 3 hours or less (essential at Air Stations where equipment must be ready 24/7/365) to respond to Search And Rescue (SAR) cases, and other emergencies.

The order is an offer by the Government to the supplier to buy certain supplies or services upon specified terms and conditions. A contract is established when the supplier accepts the offer.
