Rapid Response Third Generation (R23G) is the U. S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Rapid Response Program. The R2-3G Contract vehicle is a multiple award task order contract that consists of eighteen separate Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. It is a five year contract available to Department of Defense (DOD) and other Federal Agencies to provide rapid access to products and services to research, development, upgrade, install, fabricate, test, operate, maintain and support new and existing platforms, systems, subsystems. Non-Federal agencies may use the R2-3G contract if the work is within scope and Federal funds are used to fund the effort. R2-3G is CECOM’s primary Homeland Defense Security contract.
The intent of the R2-3G is to provide multiple prime contracts with multiple subcontractors, capable of providing the broad range of engineering services and equipment needed to accommodate varied user demands, while yielding a competitive post-award environment. The Rapid Response Project Office will provide a single focal point for managing the multiple award contract vehicles.
The objective of the RS3 Multiple Award Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract is to provide ACC-APG customers, other Program Executive Offices (PEOs) other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, and other federal agencies with knowledge based support services for requirements with Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) related needs.
The objective of this effort is to establish Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle(s) under which Task Orders (TO) may be issued to provide the requisite operational, program management, technical, engineering, integration, and program/product support services, for the duration of five (5) years. The services to be provided by the Contractor encompass a wide variety of technology support to include analysis, studies, development, design, and demonstration of innovative ISR concepts and technologies. These technologies form a holistic approach to locating terrorist networks through Persistent Surveillance, Open Source Intelligence, and the identification and localization of weapons of mass destruction systems, as well as Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). Technologies include sensors, cloud computing, multi-source data fusion, munitions detection systems, Signal Processing Tools and concepts, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) tool automation capabilities, and Counter Improvise Explosive Devices (CIED) technologies/systems in asymmetric, counter-terrorism, and counter-insurgency warfare scenarios. These technologies will convert sensor data and intelligence data to actionable intelligence and enable the local commander to make informed real-time decisions based on all available intelligence.
This acquisition (Operations and Logistics Support Services) is one of four multiple award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (MA ID/IQ) vehicles supporting Counter Narcotics (CN) efforts worldwide and administered by either the Army Contracting Command – Redstone Arsenal, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command Contracting and Acquisition Management Office (ACC-RSA USASMDC/ARSTRAT CAMO, or CAMO) or the Air Force (AF) Air Combat Command Acquisition Management and Integration Center (ACC AMIC) Counter Narcotics and Global Threats Division (CN>). The scope of these MA ID/IQ contracts is unique to each ID/IQ requirement; however, there may be some areas of unavoidable overlap based on the nature of underlying Task Order (T/O) requirements.
The NUWC IDIQ PWS supports the following five program areas: 1) Technical Collection and Analysis; 2) Manned and Unmanned Vehicle Systems Engineering and Integration, Test and Evaluation; 3) Studies, Modeling, and Simulation and Technical Support; 4) Forensics, Biometrics, and Signatures Support; and 5) Cyber Technologies, Data and Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (C4) Management.
The Solutions for Intelligence Rapid Technical Collection Support (RTCS) IDIQ is to provide the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) with rapid and traditional contractual support to urgent, sensitive operations for technical collection of intelligence across the Irregular Warfare (IW) mission area encompassing any combination of phenomenologies and techniques for material sampling, radio frequency (RF), radar, electro-optical, geophysical, nuclear radiation, biometrics, and cross-cutting technology areas (not all inclusive). The IW mission area when combined with the aerospace, ground, and littoral/maritime domains becomes IW sub-categories or sub-mission areas (IWA, IWG, and IWL). The RTCS IDIQ is also envisioned to serve as an umbrella vehicle to execute less time-critical procurements, research and development and demonstrations across the same sub-mission areas.
