The Army is looking to outsource its ISR video efforts.
In a request for information, the Army’s Technology Applications Office said contractors would support standard definition, high-definition and full-motion video, as well as signals intelligence and measurement and signature intelligence. The focus would be on supporting command and control, and ensuring distribution of video throughout the government’s C4I enterprise.
The request for information also has a strong emphasis on special operations forces, specifying a requirement for an ability to “provide C4ISR engineering, ISR architecture, and project management support directly related to Special Operations Forces (SOF) manned ISR assets and Remotely Piloted Vehicles (RPVs) including Predator, Global Hawk, Gray Eagle, Reaper and tactical RPVs.”
Contractors must also be capable of delivering video imagery to SOF units.
