This Request for Solutions (RFS) is issued to locate vendors with the ability to develop a State-of-the-Art (SOTA) heterogeneous integrated packaging (SHIP) prototype to demonstrate enhanced fabrication and packaging access for Department of Defense (DoD) programs. The primary objective of the SHIP prototype project will be to demonstrate a novel approach to a secure, assessable, and cost effective SOTA integrated, design, assembly, and test leveraging the expertise of commercial industry. In addition, a SHIP prototype will achieve less power consumption and latency, reduced physical size, and improved performance and reliability. Achieving the objective will require novel and innovative methods including unique and secure design tools, and intellectual property for multi-die heterogeneous integration of SOTA microelectronics. Secure SOTA fabrication, assembly, and test resources will also be developed to support successful demonstration of the SHIP prototype that is International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliant.
The Government will evaluate the solutions with the intent of awarding an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) in accordance with 10 U.S. Code § 2371b. In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2371b(f), and upon a determination that the prototype project (or any subsequent iterative prototyping efforts) was successfully completed under the competitively awarded OTA(s), a follow-on production contract(s) or OTA(s) may be awarded without the use of competitive procedures.
2. BACKGROUND AND SUMMARY
Vendors interested in responding to this RFS must be members of the Strategic & Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted Systems (S2MARTS) consortium. Interested parties may visit S2MARTS.org for membership information. This project will be managed by a Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division Project Manager.
2.2 PROJECT OVERVIEW
The Navy's goal is the development of a secure capability to enable the design, manufacture, assembly and test of in-package integration of system-critical components, such as digital (ASICs, Central Processing Units, FPGAs), analog, memory, mixed-signal, RF, and transceivers at a minimum. The Government is also interested in the creation of a secure manufacturing flow that will enable the rapid integration of SOTA microelectronics die using heterogeneous integration allowing the acceleration of technology insertion through advanced prototyping.
