US Marine Corps seeks counter-UAS equipment

The US Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) is conducting a market outreach to identify potential sources for the capability of manufacturing and delivering a Counter Drone or Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) or similar product. Future procurement quantities of C-UAS could range between 6-10 systems.

The C-UAS shall meet, at a minimum, the following requirements:

  • Provide an air surveillance system;
  • Capable of detecting, recognizing, classifying, identifying unmanned aircraft/drone;
  • Utilize electronic warfare and direction-finding system, that may include Automatic Target; Recognition (ATR) algorithms using acoustics, frequency, emitter signatures, or other electronic surveillance and recognition variables to provide positive identification of UAS/UAV systems;
  • Include electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) camera or similar technology for visual identification by the C-UAS operator;
  • Capability to intercept UAS/ UAV through operator Ground Control Intercept (GCI) to come into proximity of the targeted UAS/UAV to employ countermeasures;
  • Capability to employ countermeasures including the ability to jam/block the radio frequency link between the UAS/UAV and its operator; other possible countermeasures may include the ability to fire a net, laser, projectile, or direct energy;
  • System control is to be employed by a single operator.

    Vendors should provide the following:

  • Information on whether the system is ground based stationary, mobile, or vehicle mounted for transport and launch;
  • The type of system control that will be used such as a laptop computer design or a handheld system;
  • Suggested list of consumables and spare parts for a two-year support of the proposed C-UAS;
  • A list of any peculiar tools and gauges that would be required to maintain the proposed system;
  • The ability to provide Operator and Maintainer classroom training that may be held at a location determined by the USG.
