The Army is collecting industry white papers on a new capability for a key intelligence system, according to a recent solicitation.

The service requests industry input on "data fabric and analytics" as they apply to the Distributed Common Ground System-Army Capability Drop 2.

A request for information posted this month on Federal Business Opportunities cites but does not include a draft requirements document, designated "for official use only," for the new capability.

The RFI seeks to identify "commercial items to upgrade or replace the current DCGS-A architecture, as well as introduce several additional analytics and system management functions."

Interested vendors are instructed to respond by Nov. 9.

The Army will hold an industry day Oct. 26 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, to discuss the updated requirements.

The Army's program executive officer for intelligence, electronic warfare and sensors, deputy chief of staff (G-2), Intelligence Center of Excellence and Intelligence and Security Command will host the event.
