Sources Sought: Multi-Utility Loader, Expeditionary (MULE)
The Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) Lakehurst, NJ seeks to identify potential sources for the Multi-Utility Loader, Expeditionary (MULE) to serve as a force multiplier in support of both Organizational (O) and Intermediate (I) Maintenance Level Ordnance operations at multiple Forward Arming & Refueling Point (FARP) sites in support of United States Navy and Marine Corps operations. The MULE is required to be deployable aboard amphibious (L-Class) shipping, transported from seaborne platforms via surface connector vessels, MV-22 & CH-53 aircraft into fixed and rotary wing FARP locations ashore.
The objective is to procure a system capable of operating on rough terrain in austere expeditionary advanced bases, transported from shipboard environments that can provide a towing capability as well as performing the weapons handling and loading tasks of the MHU-83 Aerial Stores Lift Truck, compatible with the internal cargo requirements of the MV-22. Operations aboard the ship will be limited to movement to/from the MV-22 and CH-53 for air transport or movement to the well deck for landing craft movement ashore.
