The Army is seeking information on computing technology for the Distributed Common Ground System.
A request for information posted this month on Federal Business Opportunities states the service wants to hear from industry "on the current state of technology for scalable computing, processing, and storage capabilities for a future intelligence ground processing station."
The notice states the service is seeking details about on "combined computing and storage equipment that provides flexibility and scalability while also reducing the size, weight, power and cooling required for a future mobile ground station system." The future ground station system is intended to reduce the footprint of the existing computer solutions.
Responses are due Sept. 28 and should include a description of the scalable computing capability, number of applicable vendor solutions, customizability of the product, development and production timelines and cost information, the notice says.
