FAA seeks industry interest in drone detection data services to monitor DJI drones

The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking sources for drone detection data services to monitor DJI drone activities at various locations along US land and coastal national borders. Deadline for replies is 1 August 2023.

According to the www.sam.gov website:

“The purpose of this Statement of Work (SOW) is to establish a contract to procure drone detection data as a service (DaaS) renewal for 12-months for 26 sensors, DaaS new for 12-months for 11 sensors, and installation credits for 11 new sensors to monitor DJI drone activities primarily along US southern border regions, but also includes various locations near other land or coastal US border areas.

More detailed SOW objectives are available on the website.“This is a market survey for information and comments from industry that will aid in the formation of a strategy for the acquisition of DaaS. The FAA provides second level engineering and logistics support to the CBP Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS) program. This program is designed to identify, intercept, and tag unmanned aircraft which may be deemed a threat or potentially being used for illegal activity. DaaS is a critical piece of the CUAS mission and requires specific operational capabilities and performance requirements which are explained in the accompanying statement of work (SOW).

“The responses to this market survey will be used for informational purposes only. This is not a screening information request or request for proposal of any kind. The FAA is not seeking or accepting unsolicited proposals. The FAA will not pay for any information received or costs incurred in preparing the response to the market survey. Therefore, any cost associated with the market survey submission is solely at the interested vendor’s expense.

“At this time the nature of the competition has not been determined. The FAA may decide to do a full and open competition or set aside all or part of the procurement for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses or eligible socially and economically disadvantaged businesses that are certified by the SBA for participation in the SBA’s 8(a) Program.
