Radiological Detection System Industry Day
December 4, 2014
A pre-solicitation conference for industry will be held Dec. 4, 2014 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Radiological Detection System (RDS) contracting effort.
During the conference, representatives will be provided an opportunity engage program officials and submit questions regarding a forthcoming Request for Proposals for the RDS.
The effort is managed by the Joint Project Manager for Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPM-RND). The Radiological Detection System (RDS) is intended to replace the joint military services current radiation detection, indication and computation (RADIAC) systems. The RDS will provide increased capability and enable the Joint Services to effectively conduct joint operations with interoperable equipment, by providing a network centric, rugged radiation detection capability for detection of the entire spectrum of radiological and nuclear hazards and threats.
The proposed RDS contract will include a 10-year period of performance which will be implemented in 3 phases. Phase I is expected to be a 36-month effort and includes the System Integration and Demonstration to include design, development and manufacture of 14 test articles as well as support of government test activities.
