The Department of Homeland Security seeks information to demonstrate air domain protection equipment for research and development activities.
The future demonstration would support studies of the Border, Immigration and Maritime Division within DHS’ Science and Technology Directorate, the department said Monday in a FedBizOpps notice.
The effort aims to evaluate technologies and approaches designed to detect and track manned and unmanned aircraft systems during border security operations.
Stakeholders and other entities willing to provide sought information may submit responses through Dec. 12.
Alan Shaffer, deputy undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment, said the Pentagon is employing a middle-tier procurement approach for systems that can undergo rapid development, C4ISRNet reported Monday. He talked about the importance of low-cost systems in electronic warfare and the Department of Defense’s efforts to rapidly prototype these technologies.
