Defense Department Seeks Sensing Technologies for Thunderstorm 24-2 Demos

The Department of Defense has issued a request for information on technologies that could be included in Thunderstorm 24-2, a field demonstration and experimentation event that will focus on new solutions for persistent sensors and related technologies. 

Sensors are critical in U.S. military branches’ operations, with the technologies’ capability for continuous and real-time environment monitoring that enhances situational awareness and helps in battlefield decision-making, the DOD said.

The RFI notes that Thunderstorm 24-2, a by-invitation-only event, is scheduled in June 2024, tentatively at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. The deadline for the submission of proposed sensing technologies for showcase and demonstration in the event is on Feb. 23, according to the notice posted on SAM .gov.

Thunderstorm 24-2 will be conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Army Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Task Force and the U.S. Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory.

The DOD and its interagency partners tap the Thunderstorm event series to find new technologies and enhance collaboration with private industry, research and development entities and academia. Through the series, the DOD and its partners can provide immediate feedback to technology developers to foster quicker innovations.
