The DOD has arequirement for a Lead Systems Integration (LSI) contractor (team)capable of deploying, if required, a ''3+3'' National Missile Defense(NMD) System. The Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO) hasestablished an NMD Joint Program Office (JPO) to manage the ''3+3''Program. The NMD ''3+3'' Program requires the development anddemonstration of an NMD capability within three years or by FY99, whichcould be deployed in the following three years if so directed. Theelements of an NMD System include: the Ground Based Radar (GBR),supplemental radars, Ground Based Interceptors (GBI), Battle ManagementCommand, Control and Communications (BMC3) and space sensors (ie spacebased infra-red (SBIR)). Some NMD elements are currently undercontract and being developed, GBR (US Army Contract), theExo-Atmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) component of the GBI (two parallelUS Army contracts), BMC3 (a BMDO contract), and SBIR (a USAF program).It is the intention of BMDO to competitively obtain a Lead SystemIntegrator (LSI). This contractor (team) will become the primary focalpoint for all the elements as related to NMD and will be responsiblefor the FY99 system flight demonstration, and would deploy the NationalMissile Defense System should deployment be directed. The contractingactivity for a LSI will begin mid-October 1996 with release of an RFPfollowed by the award of up to 3 firm fixed price concept definitioncontracts about February 1997. These contracts would be ofapproximately 6 months duration and would encompass: (1) theacquisition of in depth system element knowledge by the contractor(team), developing relationships with element contractors as necessary,(2) trade studies and analyses resulting in selection of an EKV andA-specs for booster approach alternatives, such as Minuteman and/orinfrastructure supplied as government furnished equipment (differentEKVs could be used for different approaches), (3) concepts for GBIintegration, deployment planning, and continued development toward anobjective system, (4) plans to conduct the system demonstration(s), (5)on-line interaction with the government to assist in the development ofthe complete statement of objectives, and (6) the development of a fullapproach for deployment including life cycle costs. The government willselect the lead system integration contractor (team) including thepreferred booster approach from proposals submitted near the end of theconcept definition phase. The LSI contract is expected to be a costtype contract with a base period of approximately 30 months. It willalso have option line items to allow deployment within 3 years, shouldthe deployment decision be made, or continued development (capabilityenhancement) toward the objective system pending a deploymentdecision. In order to be eligible to be the prime contractor for theconcept definition or lead system integrator, potential offerors mustbe U.S. firms with experience in integrating and fielding major weaponsystems.
