The 60mm (M204, M235, and M236), 81mm (M218, M219, M220), and 120mm (M234A1) Mortar Propelling Charges are horseshoe shaped nitrocellulose (NC) containers that house the main charge propellant. The containers are molded as two separate halves that are eventually bonded together. The top half of the container has a loading hole to load the propellant prior to sealing the container with a closure tab. Once assembled, the propelling charge (maximum of four charges per mortar cartridge) is placed over the mortar fin assembly. When the ignition train is initiated, the hot gases generated inside the fin flash through the holes of the fin; therefore, igniting the propelling charges. The burning of the NC container and propellant produces enough gas pressure to force the mortar cartridge out of the tube and down range. The 60mm (M204, M235, and M236), 81mm (M218, M219, M220), and 120mm (M234A1) Mortar Propelling Charges use similar production materials and the same production processes. These Propelling Charges will be provided as Government Furnished Material (GFM) to the relevant Mortar Cartridge Load, Assemble and Pack (LAP) facilities for the production of High Explosive (HE), Smoke, Illumination, and Full Range Practice Cartridges (FRPC).
In order to receive an award, a successful offeror must have the capability to produce all of the 60mm (M204, M235, M236), 81mm (M218, M219, M220), and 120mm (M234A1) Mortar Propelling Charges. Offers that do not have the capability to produce all configurations of the 60mm, 81mm, and 120mm Propelling Charges, will not be considered for an award on this acquisition.
The maximum contract value will be $511,226,923 with a guaranteed minimum of $2,500 for each awarded contract. For planning purposes only, the estimated dollar amounts for each Mortar Propelling Charge variant is as follows:
$2,200,798 60mm M204; NSN: 1310-01-050-8896
$251,646,018 60mm M235; NSN: 1310-01-568-3208
$4,919,657 60mm M236; NSN: 1310-01-566-7489
$7,654,840 81mm M218; NSN: 1315-01-290-1598
$11,059,755 81mm M219; NSN: 1315-01-290-1597
$113,473,110 81mm M220; NSN: 1315-01-329-2575 and
