E-MAIL: Melanie.Moore1@wpafb.af.mil, Melanie.Moore1@wpafb.af.mil. Background "17. This CBD announcement constitutes a Sources Sought Synopsis to seek interested sources able to meet the fabrication, assembly, and test requirements associated with the production of an upgrade to the AN/AWG-27 Programmable Armament Control Set (PACS) for the F-15E aircraft. The Engineering and Manufacturing Development (E&MD) for the upgrade was completed under contract F33657-84-C-0228 with The Boeing Company with Dynamic Controls Hamilton Sunstrand (DCHS) being the subcontractor for hardware and software development. The Programmable Armament Control Set (PACS) is the stores management system for the F-15E. The PACS consists of four sub-systems: Converter Programmer (C-P), Electronics Sequencing Unit (ESU), Encoder/Decoder (E/D) and Power Supply (PS). Only the C-P and ESU have been redesigned to provide for future weapons growth, input/output provisions, and expanded avionics bus provisions, improved reliability, maintainability and supportability. The PACS upgraded hardware mustbe certified for nuclear weapon capability. In addition, the software, associated support equipment changes and weapon interface cabling, being developed by Boeing/DCHS for Smart Weapon capability for the F-15E (contract F33657-99-C-2008), must be integrated with the upgraded hardware. Under this effort, the contractor will be required to design, build, integrate, and provide retrofit kits for the F-15E modifications to install the upgrade to the AWG-27. The production of hardware changes designed under contract F33675-99-C-2008 will also be a part of the production effort of the upgrade AN/AWG-27. The installed functional performance of the upgraded AWG-27 shall be equal to or better than that of the AWG-27 (-30) with the Operational Flight Program (OFP) Suite 4 software (contract F33657-98-C-0003) installed. Only minor/limited modifications to aircraft interfaces shall be allowed except for the MIL-STD-1760 interface for Smart Weapons. The upgrade system shall contain all weapon modes in the AWG-27. Additionally, existing support equipment must support the upgrade system. Only minor modifications to the support equipment will be acceptable. No certified reprocurement data is available. Small Businesses are hereby notified of potential subcontracting opportunities for this acquisition. Point of contact is the Director of Procurement at the Boeing Company, (314) 232-9154.
