The Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) – Division Keyport (NUWCDIVKPT) (https://www.navsea.navy.mil/Home/Warfare-Centers/NUWC-Keyport/) is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) as part of its market research efforts to improve understanding of market capabilities, identify qualified contractors, and refine the acquisition strategy for recapitalizing the underwater test and evaluation ranges contained within the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Northwest (PACNW) Range Complex. The intended use for the information is to assess the current state-of-the-art in underwater test and tracking systems, develop potential alternatives for installing hardware and/or software associated with the underwater tracking ranges, and obtain information on completed related projects. The information provided will assist NUWC Keyport in understanding what capabilities might be commercially available or easily developed.
The PACNW Range Complex needs to repair and upgrade its current underwater sensor capabilities to meet current customer requirements with an open architecture for future needs.
In particular, NUWC Keyport is seeking a vendor(s) to provide any products, ideas, concepts that might be helpful for consideration. Examples include but are not limited to:
- Underwater Sensors
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Communications (underwater, sea-air interface, etc.)
