WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio --- Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC), in support of the Development and Integration Division (B-52), is seeking technical, performance and cost information from prospective radar suppliers about their candidate radar systems to replace the current B-52H AN/APQ-166 strategic radar.
The Government will use this information to support a formal analysis of alternatives (AoA) for the B-52 radar modernization program (RMP), to include cost estimation.
THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) ONLY.
This RFI is issued solely for information and planning purposes and does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a promise to issue an RFP in the future. This RFI does not commit the U.S. Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever.
Furthermore, the Air Force is not at this time seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals.
Responders are advised that the U.S. Government will not pay for any information or administrative costs incurred in response to this RFI; all costs associated with responding to this RFI will be solely at the interested party's expense. Not responding to this RFI does not preclude participation in any future RFP, if any is issued.
If a solicitation is released, it will be synopsized on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website. It is the responsibility of the potential offerors to monitor this site for additional information pertaining to this requirement.
The AN/APQ-166 radar system currently installed on the B-52H fleet was originally fielded in the 1950s, last upgraded to its present configuration in the early 1980s, and is approaching the end of its useful life.
The RMP will replace the AN/APQ-166 radar installed on the B-52H with a fully supportable system that maintains all current B-52H mission functions, incorporates the additional capabilities of ground moving target indicator/moving target track, surface target search/surface target track and electronic protection, and provide a growth path for new and enhanced capabilities.
