Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: The bidder must supply Canadian goods and/or services Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: Summary 1. Background/History DRDC Valcartier's Electro-Optical (EO) Warfare Section has a military platform (ships, vehicles, fighter planes, personnel) protection program to address the needs of the Canadian Forces in this area. The EO section is the national centre of expertise in electro-optical threat detection and characterization and in camouflage, and therefore is frequently called upon. Generally speaking, the work to be done by the Contractor will be to provide engineering capacity in the field of electro-optics applied to military platform protection. For example, the Contractor will be required to develop advanced detection and countermeasure concepts for protecting a vehicle. Tasks will range from the development of a simple Windows application to analyze data from a travelling missile's position in space to the development of an autonomous vehicle protection system. In short, a task may require one individual or a team of three to four experts working in electro-optical design for three to six months. The Contractor must be able to handle information with a Level II classification (SECRET), as well as controlled goods, and will perform the work in the laboratories of DRDC Valcartier. Engineering capacity in the following fields is required: 1) electronic design; 2) software/firmware design; 3) optical design; 4) opto-mechanical design; 5) data analysis; and 6) the manipulation of optical systems and equipment in the laboratory during testing. 2. Objectives The general purpose is to provide technical services in the areas of protection, detection and countermeasures to pursue the study and development of advanced concepts for military platforms. Active protection includes developing and designing detection and scrambling techniques for weapons with advanced guidance (e.g. laser, RF, wired). This includes the detection of hostile optics via retroreflection, advanced radar concepts and the design of effective countermeasures against those weapons. Passive protection includes detecting guided and unguided threats using electro-optical sensors, thermal cameras and innovative camouflage nets. In the context of this contract, military platforms can be anything from the characterization of simple systems like thermal sensors to the installation and performance evaluation of an active countermeasure system mounted on a soldier, vehicle or frigate. 3. Additional Information : The organization for which the services are to be rendered is Defence Research and Development Canada - Valcartier (DRDC - Valcartier). The period of the Contract is from date of Contract to March 31st, 2019, inclusive. Estimated amount of available funding for this contract : $865,000.00, Applicable Taxes extra. The majority of the work for this contract (>90%) shall be carried out at DRDC Valcartier, given the nature of the work and the equipment to be manipulated. Each TA will specify the exact work location for the task at hand. Defence Research and Development Canada - Valcartier has determined that any intellectual property rights arising from the performance of the Work under the resulting contract will belong to Canada. There is a security requirement associated with this requirement. For additional information, consult Part 6 - Security, Financial and Other Requirements, and Part 7 - Resulting Contract Clauses.
