The Government is issuing this RFI as part of a market survey to determine the availability, technical capability, and logistics capability of industry to provide specific information to Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division about a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS), Non-Developmental Item (NDI), or near NDI, for Close-Range Armed Unmanned Air Vehicles (CRA-UAVs). NDI includes CRA-UAVs that are developed but not yet in production, but can reasonably be expected to be in the status of test-ready articles for comparative testing on or about April of 2019. CRA-UAVs include armed UAVs that have a range of up to 50 km and endurance time of 5 minutes to 6 hours. Ordinary Close Range-UAVs are usually used only for reconnaissance and surveillance tasks; however the CRA-UAVs that NSWC Crane Division seeks should be armed for immediate firing on targets found during reconnaissance and surveillance flights. Industry responses are due by 28 September 2018.
