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: 1. Background/History The Canadian Forces Army of Tomorrow will need land forces that are agile, net-centric and versatile. The Force Employment concept is called Adaptive Dispersed Operations (ADO), where the capacity of an integrated system for infantry soldiers is a key element. In this context, small arms weapon systems are considered one of the many subsystems of the soldier system. The research program entitled Future Small Arms Research (FSAR) will provide the Canadian Forces (CF) with the scientific and technical expertise required to efficiently replace its current weapons. The FSAR program seeks to identify what makes a difference, how to measure that difference and when it can be introduced to the Canadian Forces. In the long run, the FSAR program will support the next generation of small-calibre weapons by developing a statement of requirements based on validated science and measurements for a family of weapon systems that will help significantly increase operational effectiveness. We foresee that the concepts of Assisted Target Engagement (ATE) and Target Handoff (TH) will play a key role in improving soldiers' capacity to measure and follow the positioning of targets and to engage them. The ATE and TH subsystems will help soldiers' cognitive and biomechanical functions. It is important that those subsystems work with the aiming and firing process that soldiers learn during their small arms training. DRDC Valcartier works actively to study the performance of ATE and TH systems for the Canadian Forces. The ATE helps the soldier choose the right moment to pull the trigger; the TH helps the soldier determine the absolute or relative position of a target and provides the capacity to transmit that information to other soldiers so that they can accurately locate the same target. These systems include sensors for inertial measurement, range and wind, embedded systems for processing analog and/or digital signals in real time, and Kalman-type data filtering and fusion algorithms. These studies require the use of specialized equipment to evaluate multiple concepts for each system element and for the overall system. 2. Objectives The objective of this statement of work is to obtain services to fulfil ad hoc and specific requests related to the design and manufacture of electronic circuits for signal acquisition or mixing, measurement, characterization and performance evaluation for inertial navigation and positioning systems installed on small arms. The work to be perform include but is not limited to: 1. Developing and integrating inertial and positioning sensors for small arms; 2. Developing, designing and manufacturing electronic circuits with microcontrollers; 3. Developing software and firmware; 4. Processing digital signals; 5. Collecting data in an experimental environment; 6. Analyzing and processing test data. This contract includes a firm portion and a portion to be performed on an "as and when requested basis" using a Task Authorization (TA). i. Task 1 - Firm portion of the Work The Contractor must perform Task 1 "Prototype of mixed sensor integrated circuit" (to be completed once the contract is awarded) The purpose of this task is to develop a prototype for a microcontroller integrated circuit and mixed sensors comprised of an IMU, LRF and GPS for use in research and development studies on target handoff (TH). ii. Portion of the Work to be performed on an "as and when requested basis" using a Task Authorization (TA). The Contractor must provide the services described in the tasks at item 2(ii) of the "Statement of Work". Each of the task authorizations may refer to more than one task and/or subtask, and will be specified in the task authorizations. Each task or subtask can be activated more than once, and can be activated simultaneously. 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 : $845,000.00, Applicable Taxes extra. Given the nature of the equipment in use (military systems, controlled goods, fixed laboratories and shared equipment), most of the work must be carried out on-site at DRDC Valcartier, 2459 de la Bravoure, Quebec, G3J1X5. However, it is possible that some of the support electronics design work not requiring the use of software owned by DRDC can be performed off-site by the contractor using its own copies of the software. If the nature of the task allows, this consideration will be specified in the task authorization. The the firm part of the work (task 1), the work will be carried out on site at DRDC Valcartier. However, the Project Manager can be on-site on a "as required basis" at the request of DRDC-Valcartier. 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. For more information on personnel and organization security screening or security clauses, bidders should refer to the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate (CISD), Industrial and Security Program of Public Works and Government Services Canada (http://ssi-iss.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/index-eng.html) website Bidders must provide a list of names, or other related information as needed, pursuant to section 01 of Standard Instructions 2003. For services requirements, Bidders in receipt of a pension or a lump sum payment must provide the required information as detailed in article 3 of Part 2 of the bid solicitation. The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT). The requirement is limited to Canadian goods and/or services. This procurement is subject to the Controlled Goods Program. Delivery Date: Above-mentioned The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement. Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
