The Government intends to issue an initial draft Request for Prototype Proposal (RPP) for the Advanced Reconnaissance Vehicle (ARV) Prototype Vehicle (PV) Project on approximately August 31, 2020. The Government intends to issue a final RPP under the Ground Vehicle Systems (GVS) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), W15QKN-17-9-1025 in the second quarter of FY 21.

The intent of this project is to pursue the development and acquisition of the Advanced Reconnaissance Vehicle (ARV) Prototype Vehicle (PV) for the United States Marine Corps (USMC). The ARV PV is envisioned as a next generation platform with a combination of capabilities that will enable Light Armored Reconnaissance (LAR) battalions to function as a battlefield manager.

The Government anticipates making up to four (4) awards for ARV PVs as a result of the final RPP. The awardees will deliver a prototype ARV for testing/evaluation by the Government per award.

The Government may pursue a Follow-on Production effort under the authority of 10.U.S.C. 2371b(f), which states that, upon a determination that the competitively awarded prototype project has been successfully completed, the prototype project may result in the award of a follow-on production contract or transaction without the use of competitive procedures. The anticipated Follow-on Production funding is currently estimated at $1.8B – $6.2B over five (5) years.
