21 Jun 13. W900KK13RFIMILESTVS Notice Type: Special Notice Synopsis: Program Title: Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (I-MILES) Tactical Vehicle System (TVS) Recompete. Introduction: The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), Project Manager Training Devices (PM TRADE) and Product Manager Live Training Systems (PM LTS) intends to procure a Tactical Vehicle System (TVS) capability, interfaced into the Homestation and Combat Training Center (CTC) Instrumentation Systems (IS). The I-MILES TVS is a laser-based training device that supports the Force-on-Force (FOF)/Force-on-Target (FOT) training needs of soldiers occupying various heavy weight, medium weight, light weight – Tracked or Multi-Wheeled – Army Tactical Vehicles that do not have an embedded fire-control system. The I-MILES TVS supports any crew-served weapon systems that may be appended to or installed on the vehicle. Additionally, the I-MILES TVS shall be versatile enough to support use on low and medium protected structures/fixed equipment such as bridges, bunkers, ammunition caches, refuel depots, and buildings.

21 Jun 13. W56HZV-142-SOURCES-SOUGHT Notice Type: Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) Sources Sought. This is a request for candidates for the 14.2 NIE, Apr-May 2014. The US Army ASA(ALT) System of Systems Engineering and Integration Directorate (hereinafter referred to as SOSE&I) is seeking interested sources with mature solutions to enhance existing network systems capabilities to participate in a Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) event scheduled to occur in April/May 2014 (referred to as NIE 14.2) at Ft. Bliss, TX and the adjacent White Sands Missile Range, NM (WSMR). The purpose of this notice is to identify emerging capabilities to be evaluated against a set of entrance criteria for an opportunity to participate in an NIE. This Sources Sought seeks solutions with a narrow focus on Specific Identified Gaps in the current and evolving networked equipment solution set.(Source: Open Source Information Report)

21 Jun 13. The Air Force Space and Missile Center, in support of the Range and Network Systems Division (SMC/RN), is seeking contractor capability statements and potential solutions to make a transition in the Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) ground communications architecture from its current serial-based configuration to an Internet Protocol (IP) network over the next two to six years using open standards and Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) products. The AFSCN is a worldwide low data rate network of Remote Tracking Stations (RTS) responsible for connecting Satellite Operation Centers to satellites to support launch, early orbit, on-orbit and end-of-life Telemetry, Tracking and Commanding (TT&C) state-of-health operations (See Attachment #1). The current AFSCN ground communication system relies on proprietary Wide Area Network Interface Units (WANIU) to program multiplex and de-multiplex serial and IP data, respectively. These WANIUs were developed in the 1990’s and are approaching their end-of-life due to parts obsolescence and increasing maintenance costs. A replacement to the WANIUS will be necessary to maintain the operational readiness of the AFSCN and support the AFSCN transition to an IP-based network. (Source: Open Source Information Report)
