The Department of Homeland Security has awarded four companies contracts for aerial remote sensing services that support the agency’s incident management and homeland security missions.
Each indefinite/delivery-indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed price type contract has a five-year ordering period, DHS said in a May 22 FedBizOpps post.
Contractors must award 45 percent of their intended subcontract amounts to small businesses in the woman-owned, HUBZone and service-disabled veteran-owned categories, DHS says.

Contractors will report location, configuration and status of aircraft and sensors as well as help deploy aircraft and camera systems for acquiring airborne imagery.
BAE Systems said Monday it will acquire, process and distribute geospatial data and airborne imagery to produce maps that intend to reflect current environmental conditions.
DeEtte Gray, president of BAE’s intelligence and security sector, said the company’s imagery and analysis is intended for first responders to use during emergencies.
