Army Seeks Information on Aerostat Systems Support Services Provider

The U.S. Army is conducting market research to identify potential vendors capable of fulfilling the government’s need for aerostat systems.

On Thursday, the service branch issued a sources-sought notice seeking more detailed information on contractors’ experience working with aerostat systems, including their capability to provide life cycle support to a family of systems, including persistent surveillance systems tethered aerostats and persistent surveillance dissemination system of systems.

Interested parties can submit their replies by May 10,  according to the notice posted on SAM .gov.

The government issued the solicitation in preparation for a multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity task order contract, with an estimated value of $3 billion to $4 billion and a performance period of five to 10 years.

Several federal organizations have been using aerostats in a variety of applications. In November, the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection selected QinetiQ to provide support services to a tethered aerostat radar system used for border security operations.
