Synopsis:
Added: Dec 18, 2014 3:57 pm
This publication is a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), USSOCOM-BAAST-2015,as contemplated in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.102(d)(2) and 35.016. Solicitations requesting white papers or proposals will be accomplished via amendments to BAA USSOCOM-BAAST-2015. BAA
USSOCOM-BAAST-2015 is issued in support of United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Special Operations Research, Development, and Acquisition Center (SORDAC) targeted research and development (R&D); projects.

USSOCOM has a long-term goal to develop technologies to meet Special Operations Forces (SOF) mission requirements. The intent is to accelerate the delivery of these innovative capabilities to the SOF warfighter. Prior studies and analyses have determined technical challenges exist for SOF equipment that require improvements for missions into the future. Those challenges are 1) trade space between weight, protection, power, and mobility;
2) cost; and 3) system component integration.


***This BAA will remain open for 5 years until 16 December 2019, unless superseded, amended, or cancelled.***


Periodically, but no less than annually, BAA updates, notices, or individual calls for white papers or proposals for specific technology areas of interest will be placed (via amendment and/or special notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website, http://www.fedbizopps.gov/) against USSOCOM-BAAST-2015.

SEE PACKAGE #1 FOR OVERARCHING BAA INFORMATION (White Paper and Proposal sumission and reivew information), WHIPTE PAPER FORMAT, and PROPOSAL FORMAT.


***Technology Areas of Interest will be added to BAA USSOCOM-BAAST-2015 via Appendixes beginning with Appendix C.***
