CONTRACT OPPORTUNITY

Army to develop two geospatial task order contracts

The Army Corps of Engineers is working on a pair of five-year contracts to buy a wide range of geospatial services.

One is a full-and-open contract and is expected to be worth $200 million. Another contract, aimed at small businesses, has an estimated value of $48 million.

The larger contract will be used for geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) system research, development, and analysis. The Army wants to find and close gaps in its geospatial science and technologies, according to the request for information.

The contract also will be used to integrate command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) processes and architectures.

The Army is looking for support services for formulating joint capabilities technology demonstrations prototypes and quick reaction capabilities related to GEOINT requirements.

In addition, the contract will be used to develop new technologies and processes related to GEOINT exploitation tools, full-motion video, activity-based intelligence, among others areas.

The small-business contract is for geospatial data models and system engineering, according to the RFI.

The Army wants to integrate and synchronize geospatial information requirements and standards across the Army. Officials also want input from companies about developing data models that can integrate and fuse the geospatial information and other types of data from multiple sources, including across the Defense Department.

The contract also will be used to provide direct geospatial support and products to warfighters

Responses to both RFIs are due by Oct. 27.
