Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: Generally only one firm has been invited to bid Attachment: None Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Exclusive Rights Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address: Martec Limited Martec Limited 1888 Brunswick Street, Suite 400 Halifax Nova Scotia Canada B3J3J8 Nature of Requirements: Development of behaviors and capabilities within SeeByte NEPTUNE W7707-145741/A LeBlanc, JoAnne Telephone No. - (902) 496-5010 Fax No. - (902) 496-5016 1. An Advanced Contract Award Notice (ACAN) is a public notice indicating to the supplier community that a department or agency intends to award a contract for goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier, thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed with the award to the pre-identified supplier. 2. Definition of requirement DRDC is studying the role that planning tools could play in enabling unmanned maritime systems to collaborate through a common mission plan. DRDC is also interested in these planning tools as a component of the on-board vehicle autonomy framework. DRDC is representing Canada in several upcoming international trials in 2014. At these trials, the participants from the United Kingdom and the United States will bring AUVs that use the SeeByte NEPTUNE planning tools. An objective of the trial is to demonstrate that unmanned maritime vehicles, equipped with SeeByte NEPTUNE and the WHOI micromodems, are capable of communicating and inter-operating regardless of the autonomous vehicle type, brand, middleware, sensors, etc. The main tasks of this contract are to implement logging of sonar data from the DRDC IVER2 AUV within the SeeByte NEPTUNE. The DRDC IVER2 AUV has NEPTUNE integrated on-board. As well, a new behavior has to be developed for the SeeByte NEPTUNE to allow an AUV that has missed a waypoint, because of its finite turn radius, to re-acquire the waypoint. 3. Criteria for assessment of the Statement of Capabilities Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of a statement of capabilities that its services meets the the requirements that are detailed herein. 4. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier Martec Ltd. has a teaming agreement with the NEPTUNE OEM, SeeByte Ltd. and has worked with them for the last two years. Martec Ltd. is the only company in Canada that has worked with the SeeByte SeeTrack and NEPTUNE planning tools. NEPTUNE is a plug-in for SeeTrack Military and Martec Ltd. has proven experience developing modules for SeeTrack Military. Martec Ltd. was also the prime contractor for integrating the DRDC IVER2 AUV with the NEPTUNE planning tools. Due to their experience and background with SeeTrack Military and NEPTUNE and the fact that they are the only Canadian vendor that is familiar with NEPTUNE, DRDC recommends the contract for this proposal be awarded to Martec Ltd. 5. Government Contracts Regulations Exception(s) The following exception to the Government Contracts Regulations is invoked for this procurement under subsection 6(d) - "only one person is capable of performing the work". 6.
