Global aerospace and defence technology company Northrop Grumman is seeking to identify potential Australian subcontractors for its systems integrator and solutions services request for tender.
Northrop Grumman is seeking potential subcontractors to satisfy Australian industry capability (AIC) requirements of the Chief Information Officer Group’s request for tender (RFT) 0512, to provide a scalable solution for a core intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data integration system for JP 2096 Phase 1.
The AIC work in the RFT includes:
- Data architecture;
- ISR systems engineering;
- ISR systems integration;
- Software maintenance support;
- Integration and operational support;
- Development and delivery of training packages;
- Level two and three help desk;
- Data persistence; and
- ISR analytic tools.
The JP 2096 Phase 1 project is a multi-phased program that will enable and support operations of military and intelligence force elements and organisations. JP 2096 Phase 1 will provide infrastructure and functionality to the Defence Secret Network (DSN) to create a unified dataset that enables users to discover, access, analyse, manipulate and publish ISR information and intelligence in a timely manner, regardless of location, organisation, activity or information source.
JP 2096 Phase 1 will deliver this functionality by providing the infrastructure on the DSN and Deployed DSN to store, manage and process large volumes of ISR information and intelligence.
Northrop Grumman is requesting a response no later than 13 April 2017 from Australian companies that have the above capabilities, preferably including a short capability summary or product specification.
