The Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) is seeking a reliable, wireless communications platform to enable chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) detectors to be networked wirelessly and to connect to wireless alarms.
ECBC is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) as part of a market survey to identify businesses with existing Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) or Government off the Shelf (GOTS) solutions to meet the needs of this requirement.
The wireless solution must be capable of transmitting CBRN sensor data at least 400 meters and up to 1000 meters; weigh less than 5 pounds; operate on battery for a minimum of 24 hours; and support encryption CBRN sensor data.
It is anticipated that the papers received will reflect the best available technology assessments from those companies and government agencies that are particularly knowledgeable in the fields of military communications. ECBC will analyze the information received and reach its own independent conclusions regarding the wireless solutions that might be turned into a solicitation or incorporated into existing contracts with CBRN detectors. ECBC will not host an Industry Day in conjunction with this RFI.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: W911SR-17-R-WLSS.
