DESC: The objective of this effort is to preserve the Defense Special Weapons Agency (DSWA) nuclear core competencies by addressing STRATCOM and other DSWA customer support requirements in the areas of target lethality and assessments of urban nuclear terrorism scenarios. Significant technical shortfalls in the areas of blast, shock, and thermal effects are to be addressed by accounting for weapon specific outputs and target specific applications. The effort will support the development and dissemination of PC based desktop tools incorporating the results of these research efforts and will provide a vastly improved understanding of fallout generation and dynamics in urban environments and from structure contained/concealed detonations. Contractor personnel will require a DoD security level of SECRET. Contemplated period of performance is 36 months, not including the final reporting cycle.
Information on DSWA solicitations, already released, can be obtained by calling the DSWA Hotline at (703) 325-1173.
As of 31 May 96, Acquisition Management has added "Procurement Opportunities" to the DSWA Home Page available on the World Wide Web. Information will include this synopsis and more. Please check us out at www.dswa.mil.
