The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWARSYSCOM), in support of the Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (PEO C4I), Communications and GPS Navigation Program Office (PMW/A 170), intends to release Request For Proposal (RFP) N00039-17-R-0011 for procurement of the Global Positioning System (GPS)-based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Service (GPNTS) software support contract based on Government provided Technical Requirements Document, Statement of Work (SOW) and Technical Data Packages (TDPs) in Q2FY18. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code assigned to this acquisition is 541511 (size standard 750 employees). The incumbent contractor for GPNTS development is Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) under contract N00039-11-C-0089. The GPNTS software support requirement will be an unrestricted full and open competition.
This announcement is issued solely for informational and planning purposes and does not constitute a solicitation or obligation to issue a future solicitation. This announcement does not commit the Government to contract for any supplies or services. Companies interested in the anticipated RFP should monitor the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website at www.fbo.gov for the release of the RFP. The Government intends to make one (1) indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) award as a result of the anticipated RFP. The basic contract will possess a potential ordering period of up to 10 years should all options be exercised. The contract will include a base ordering period of five (5) years, a subsequent three (3) year option period and a final two (2) year option period utilizing cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) Contract Line Item Numbers (CLINs) for GPNTS software improvements, maintenance and engineering services. Contract award is estimated for Q1FY19.
GPNTS receives, processes, and distributes three (3) dimensional position, velocity, acceleration, attitude, time and frequency in the formats required by shipboard user systems. GPNTS is a single Program of Record (POR) for U.S. Navy ships as well as potential U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), Military Sealift Command (MSC), and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) platforms. GPNTS is designed to accommodate back-fit of current legacy PNT systems and forward-fit of new platforms. The GPNTS system was developed using a commercial, open-systems architecture approach, to meet user requirements in a net-centric Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment. The GPNTS system incorporates embedded Non-Developmental Item (NDI) military-grade Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GPS receivers, and includes anti-jam GPS antenna systems. In addition, the U.S. Air Force GPS Directorate is currently developing Military Code (M- Code) capable Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE). MGUE is currently available and GPNTS integration and test started in Fiscal Year (FY) 16 and will go through FY18. The GPNTS Program plans to transition from the SAASM configuration to M-Code at a point in time after GPNTS has entered hardware production. The GPNTS software support contract may provide engineering support to integrate the GPS M-Code signal receiver into the GPNTS.
