SDA Posts DRAFT RFP Seeking Industry Feedback on Tracking Tranche 0

Original Responses due by May 29, 2020

The Space Development Agency (SDA) seeks input on a DRAFT Request for Proposal (RFP) to inform the approach and technical requirements for the Tracking layer. Tracking Tranche 0 is expected to consist of approximately 8-10 satellites that are interconnected with cross links and wide field of view infrared sensors for missile warning and tracking.  The agency, which worked closely on this with MDA’s HBTSS program, is looking for industry feedback to inform the current specific requirements and technical challenges that include, but are not limited to, low-recurring cost satellite buses, mass producible OPIR mission payloads and associated data processing, and interoperable crosslinks and networking.  Industry feedback is needed by May 29, 2020 to support our release of the full RFP expected in mid-June.
