ITEM DESCRIPTION: The BRU-57 is used on the F-16C and F-16D. The BRU-57 is a MIL-STD-1760 capable, multiple-carriage, vertical-ejection BRU. Two USAF standard BRU-46/A bomb ejector racks are utilized on the BRU-57/A. The BRU-57/A is used to provide side-by-side carriage and release of two 14-inch suspension stores. The BRU-57/A accommodates the MIL-STD-1760 mission stores, allowing for communication between the aircraft Stores Management System (SMS) and the weapon/store. These mission stores include, but are not limited to, Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW) and the Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD). Impediment to Competition: The original equipment manufacturer for these cables is EDO LLC (CAGE 82340). The Government does not own any data, drawings, schematics, or any other releasable technical data in support of this requirement. As a result, EDO is the only known source with adequate knowledge of the BRU-57 performance requirements and possession of the required technical data and capabilities needed to produce these items and ensure compatibility of the equipment. INTEREST: The DLA/AWB Contracting Office intends to award a sole source contract to EDO LLC for the manufacture of the BRU-57 in support of the F-16 C/D Program.
