Air Force Issues RFI for Air Support Operations Center Modernization
The Air Force has issued a request for information on behalf of the Tactical Air Control Party Modernization Office in search of hardware and software products to support the modernization of Air Support Operations Centers.
ASOCs are responsible for integrating close air support power into counter-land operations. They support warfighters by de-conflicting airspace, coordinating air and ground resources, forwarding and filtering frontline analog and digital communications and providing the best fixed-wing asset for CAS missions.
The TACP-M office is interested in pieces of hardware, including servers, server racks, cloud based networks, lightweight and workstations, as well as CAS and C2 software, according to the RFI posted on SAM .gov.
Software products must allow users to view intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance synchronization matrices, manage and collaborate relationship/mission products, host near real-time library of ISR feeds and recordings, manage data geospatial overlays, update logistics and forces equipment statues and battle track mission and forces.
Responses to the RFI may include products that are ready for production or those still under development. The main idea is that these products are able to improve the efficiency of ASOCs.
Interested sources may submit white papers of their own format in response to the RFI until June 11.
