1. This Sources Sought Notice is issued in accordance with DFARS 206.302-1(d) and PGI 206.302-1. This is not a Request for Proposals. The purpose of this Sources Sought Announcement is to conduct market research and to gain awareness of any additional potential qualified sources interested and capable of performing the work.

2. The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), Special Operation Forces (SOF), Acquisition Technology and Logistics (AT&L), Directorate of Procurement, intends to increase the ceiling value of previously awarded sole source contract H92408-18-D-0006 for Medium Altitude Long Endurance Tactical (MALET) contract H92403-18-D-0006, which was awarded on 30 August 2018 to General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 to General Atomics in Poway, CA. An increase of $44M is anticipated in order to execute Program Management, Integration and Air Worthiness, additional Kits, and Studies for the operational requirement to integrate the Multi Mission Payload (MMP) onto MQ-9 and MQ-1C aircraft and to rapidly integrate Special Operations Forces-peculiar (SOF-p) kit onto these airframes. The original ceiling price was established based on operational requirements assessed at the time.

Any interested party shall be able to provide integration and testing support, including development of design documentation and test planning/reporting documentation required for Airworthiness Review (AWR) approval from appropriate Airworthiness Approval Authorities for MALET MQ-9 and MQ-1C Special Operations Forces peculiar (SOF-p) modifications developed by Third Party Mission Systems sources, as well as the purchase of General Atomics developed and produced modification kits (hardware and software) for MALET MQ-9 and MQ-1C aircraft.

3. All SOF-p modifications require qualification testing in a System Integration Lab (SIL) as well as ground and flight testing on SOF configured MQ-9 and MQ-1C aircraft. The required aircraft level integration must include systems engineering, systems architecture, and publications management as well the ability to perform specific MQ-9 and MQ-1C engineering analyses, field level engineering and technical support. Companies must have access, and the ability to perform work in a facility and with personnel cleared at the Secret classification level, at minimum.

4. This notice does not constitute an Invitation for Bids (IFB), a Request for Quote (RFQ), or a Request for Proposal (RFP) and it should not be construed as a commitment of any kind by USSOCOM to issue a formal solicitation or ultimately award a contract. USSOCOM is in no way liable to pay for or reimburse any companies or entities that respond to this announcement. Any costs incurred by interested companies in response to this announcement will NOT be reimbursed.

5. All information marked as proprietary information will be safeguarded to prevent disclosures to non-government personnel and entities.
