Solicitation: 24.4
Open Date: 05/29/2024
Topic Number: A244-029
Application Due Date: 07/02/2024
Duration: Up to 6 months

Amount Up To: $250,000

Objective

The U.S. Army seeks to create a deployable solution that can repair equipment corrosion in harsh mission environments.

Description 

The Letterkenny Army Depot wants to deploy a mobile corrosion unit that has the following capabilities: laser ablation, corrosion preventative coating application (primer, polyurea and topcoat), cold spray (dragonfly), plasma blast, welding, sander/blaster and all supporting equipment/power requirements. 

The small businesses’ proposed deliverables must include a reliable supply chain for the maintenance and replacement of parts through normal wear and tear and an operator training plan. All solutions must also include the integrated technologies as part of a deployable, ruggedized system that can operate in harsh environments

Phase I

The Army will only accept Phase I proposals for contracts worth up to $250,000 over a 6-month performance period. During this time, vendors must develop a proof-of-concept for a multisystem corrosion unit prototype.

In this phase, proposals need to demonstrate how the vendor will integrate, power and maintain the required capabilities. Proposals should include all specifications that would constrain operations (such as weight, operating temperature, electromagnetic interference and decibel output, power requirements and run-time).

In that same vein, proposals must also include a detailed procurement plan along with supply chain risk analysis (i.e., identifying the sole source or proprietary technologies, the nationality of the manufactured parts and the lifespan for any of the selected solutions). Additionally, vendors should include a testing plan for the prototype along with identified events for customer input and approvals.

Phase II

N/A

Phase III

In recent years, the government has increased spending on infrastructure development across various sectors. These sectors include roads, bridges, railways, telecom and power sectors. This has resulted in a greater demand for heavy machinery and equipment.

  • High, dual-use applicable industries and applications. 
  • Automotive and aircraft (welding repair services). 
  • Construction (general-purpose machinery and equipment, heavy machinery and equipment, commercial and service-industry machinery and equipment).
  • Agriculture (farming, heavy equipment for feedstuff and transportation).  
  • Power and Energy (hydraulic equipment).

Submission Information

All eligible businesses must submit proposals by noon, ET.
