The Government will be conducting a Live Fire Missile Test (LFMT) for an existing aircraft survivability equipment program in April 2009 in Tonopah, Nevada at the Tonopah Test Range. After all existing aircraft survivability equipment program contractors are accommodated for the LFMT event, it is anticipated that there will be limited, additional space available for others to participate in the form of passive data recording of the LFMT. Because space is limited, the USG will give preference for these remaining spots to firms who identify themselves in writing as intending to submit a proposal as a prime contractor for the JATAS under RFP N00019-08-R-0043 on a First Come, First Served basis. If there are additional spaces available after all such identified JATAS prime contractor offerors have responded, additional firms may participate on a First Come, First Served basis. All participants shall comply with the following conditions: Participation and data collection are on a “Not to Interfere” basis, and at your own risk. Participation shall be at your own expense. The Government will not reimburse for any expenses incurred by participating organizations. Participants shall make available to the Government any data collected upon written Government request. Participants bringing sensors may bring up to two sensors and be afforded a four foot section of the test stands for equipment setup. No additional sensors will be permitted, in order to ensure participants have equal access and opportunity. Participating organizations may send up to three individuals. All individuals must posses a current valid US Secret clearance. Participating organizations must attend a test planning working group the week of 9 March, location to be determined pending industry response. Cancellations after that point will not result in an opening, due to insufficient planning and coordination time remaining prior to the event. Participating organizations must have a Government Sponsor to validate the participant’s “need to know.” Participating organizations shall submit a list of all equipment, both corporate and personal, that will be brought to the facility. The list must be approved prior to any equipment being brought or shipped onto the facility. Participating organizations requesting space in the test stands will have access to station power and a local area network. Power requirements or any other form of test support required must be identified as part of application. All requests for participation must be emailed to the JATAS Contract Specialist, Tanis Meldrum, at email@example.com. Requests shall include: Firm(s) being represented, participant information including name, e-mail address and phone numbers, an organizational point of contact (if different than the range participants), description of intended sensor and data recording capabilities, contact information for the sponsoring Government Organization, and any test support requirements. Requests shall be submitted by 1600 EST on 18 Feb 09.
All individuals must posses a current valid US Secret clearance.
