The Army is issuing a request for white papers for the Soldier Borne Sensor, a compact situational awareness tool used to support a squad or platoon.
The service is seeking "solutions that address all program aspects from prototype, analyses and assessments, to initial operational capabilities," according to a Dec. 10 Army notice. Industry should also include a video of any relevant systems in their submissions.
Two other transaction agreements will be awarded for 10 SBS systems. The notice states the prototypes will be delivered at 15 months followed by three months of test support.
A request for proposals, released last year, listed the components of the SBS system, which include a ground control station, air vehicle components, tactical configuration and ancillary items such as storage cases and spare batteries.
White papers are due Jan. 14.
