US DDS seeks industry support in C-UAS systems acquisition process

The Office of the US Under Secretary of Defense — Defense Digital Service (DDS) has issued a request for information on supporting counter-UAS systems acquisition. Deadline for responses in May 3, 2023.

According to the tender text:

“Small UAS (sUAS) are a threat both domestically and overseas. The global sUAS industry is rapidly evolving and introducing new sUAS into the market daily. Enabling the warfighter to utilize this cutting edge technology in the field and in support of base-defense is essential to DoD operations and countering this threat. Performance of this development requires unique labor, tools, parts, and software; often solutions need to be urgently fielded to meet the needs of the warfighter.

“WHS (AD) is issuing this Sources Sought Notice to obtain information, and assist in determining the appropriate acquisition method for counter-unmanned aerial systems (c-UAS) capabilities, to evaluate capabilities to safely operate foreign-made drones through mitigation of physical hardware and software equipment in support of testing training and development of c-UAS systems. The estimated period of performance for these requirements is for 1 (one) base period for 12-months, and 4 (four) option periods for 12-months.”
