Air Force Research Lab Plans $490M Counter-sUAS R&D Contract

Jeff Brody

The Air Force Research Laboratory is seeking contractor support to develop, evaluate and demonstrate a technology to counter small unmanned aircraft systems that use commercial off-the-shelf tools.

In a notice posted Tuesday on beta.SAM.gov, AFRL said it plans to procure services through a single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-qantity contract worth potentially $490M over six years.

Main goals of the project are to develop technology platforms according to user requirements, deliver operational prototypes for user evaluation and feedback and establish an acquisition mechanism for limited product quantities, according to the presolicitation notice.

The proposed IDIQ could include hardware, software, documentation and report orders.

AFRL added it will host an industry day to discuss the C-sUAS acquisition plan with interested vendors ahead of the issuance of a draft request for proposals in the first quarter of 2020.
