RFI: Advanced Tactical Weapon Data Link
The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Patuxent River, MD, intends to negotiate and award a contract for hardware and software design; and testing requirements to Collins Aerospace, – Communication & Navigation Products, Mission Systems, Cedar Rapids, Iowa to mature the development of the Advanced Weapon Agnostic Radio Enhancement (AWARE) Advanced Tactical Data Link (ATDL).
The scope of this contract is to mature the integrated three-mode software defined radio, providing Link 16, Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS), and ATDL functions, along with embedded encryption, into a single module to replace the current Link 16 weapon data links used by the Navy. This includes any and all support electronics, software, firmware and hardware required for the Government to complete check out and test of the WDL, and to produce a design specification for future procurement.
This effort will include initial production of the WDL. The module Interface Control Document (ICD) will remain platform and weapon system agnostic, for a universal solution that easily integrates into systems across the DoD portfolio.
