The U.S. Air Force has begun to solicit proposals for production-ready systems to meet the requirement for a 3D expeditionary long-range radar platform.
A notice posted on March 2 says the service will execute a middle-tier acquisition approach under the SpeedDealer solicitation and plans to award up to three other transaction agreements to rapidly develop, test and deploy 3DELRR prototypes that can replace its legacy TPS-75 radar system.
The Air Force may award a follow-on contract to produce and supply up to 35 3DLERR systems upon the completion of a prototype project. The OTA will be a fixed-price agreement not exceeding $500K.
Proposals are due April 1, according to the solicitation.
The military branch issued the draft SpeedDealer solicitation in February.
