The Navy is soliciting for Dual Band Decoy (DBD) Demonstration of Existing Technologies (DET). The goal of this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is to increase the Government’s knowledge and understanding regarding existing technologies that can be applied toward the development of an expanded/wideband RF towed self-protection decoy to counter current and emerging RF threats worldwide. Of specific interest are technologies that can be leveraged and applied where significant size, weight, power and cooling constraints exist, such as those associated with the current ALE-50 and ALE-55 form factor and interface limitations, as installed on the F/A-18E/F aircraft. Proposals in response to this BAA are being solicited per FAR 35.016 and 6.102(d)(2). The information obtained through this BAA will be used to determine the path forward to support the Navy’s current and future Dual Band Decoy requirements.

This announcement and any modifications to this announcement will be open through 7 December 2018 in the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOps). Submission instructions are provided in the BAA document attached to this solicitation. The Navy reserves the right to select for award any, all, part or none of the responses received. The BAA is an expression of interest only and does not commit the Government to pay any proposal preparation costs for responding to this BAA. Responses should be forwarded at no cost to the Government.
