The Air Force is planning to create a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for agile development work for the department’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS).
The Air Force’s goal is addressing several DCGS strategies related to the Agile/Scaled Agile Framework. The Agile/SAFe task orders will focus on:
- Integrating new intelligence sources to DCGS embedded systems
- Making infrastructure improvements to the systems
- Improving information-sharing, integration and interoperability
- Implementing New Multi-Intelligence analysis and fusion capabilities
The DCGS is a worldwide, net-centric system of fixed and deployable, scalable and modular ground stations. The system provides multi-source intelligence data to warfighters through data distribution, information-sharing, and collaborative work centers.
The Air Force released the sources-sought notice Oct. 21. Responses are due by Nov. 21.
