Notice Type :
Added: Oct 11, 2017 2:04 pmThis Request for Information (RFI) is for information and planning purposes only and does not constitute a Request for Proposal. It shall not be construed as a commitment by the Government to award a contract as a result of this request for information.
The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Naval Air Warfare Center Lakehurst NJ (NAWCADLKE) is requesting information from industry in order to identify airfield lighting manufacturers capable of producing airfield lighting controllers for runways and taxiways to be integrated into the US Marine Corps Expeditionary Airfield (EAF) Legacy Hardwired Lighting System. The EAF Legacy Hardwired Lighting System has been in service for over 30 years. The legacy controller is nearing obsolescence, leading to capability gaps and an inability of continued support. In order to address these issues, while still accomplishing the mission, NAVAIR is considering integrating an airfield lighting controller with the legacy constant current regulators. Broad industry participation is desired but NAVAIR is keenly interested in designs that are currently in production or near production. Material identified as Company Proprietary provided in response to this RFI will be treated as such by the Government.
1. PURPOSE: This notice is part of Government Market Research, a process for obtaining the latest information on the art of the possible' from industry with respect to their current and near-term abilities. All company proprietary information contained in the response shall be separately marked. Any proprietary information contained in response to this request that is properly marked will be properly protected from unauthorized disclosure. The Government will not use proprietary information submitted from any one firm to establish the capability and requirements for any future systems acquisition so as to not inadvertently restrict competition.
2. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this Request for Information (RFI) are to identify responsible sources and interested parties who can provide airfield lighting controllers that may or may not be compliant with FAA Advisory Circular 150/5345-3 (Specification for L-821, Panels for the Control of Airport Lighting Control or FAA Advisory Circular 150/5345-56 (Specification for L-890 Airport Lighting Control and Monitoring System.)
3. BACKGROUND: The mission of the NAVAIR EAF program is to equip the US Marine Corps to support Naval Aviation with the flexibility and capability to rapidly deploy and establish survivable, self-sustaining airfields in austere, expeditionary operating environments. The EAF Concept is a shore-based, aviation weapons support system which permits deployment of landing force aircraft within effective range of ground forces. This concept allows for the construction of portable, reusable, forward-deployed airfields that can be assembled in a building block concept for the rapid introduction of air power. The EAF family of systems supports a myriad of airfield configurations, ranging in size and complexity from single-aircraft vertical take-off and landing sites, to short runways for tactical aircraft, to extended runways for heavy cargo lift, through the deployment of airfield surfacing systems, expeditionary arresting gear, airfield terminal guidance systems and airfield lighting and marking systems. The EAF Legacy Hardwired Lighting System has been in service for over 30 years.
4. REQUEST: Companies interested in participating are asked to respond to this RFI with a specification of their commercial Airport Lighting Controller. NAVAIR would also like to gain insight from industry on several areas. Please provide and/or describe the following:
