The Joint Navigation Warfare Center is pursuing upgrades to its navigational warfare operations, according to a sources-sought notice posted today.

Housed under U.S. Space Command, the JNWC is responsible for establishing positioning, navigation and timing superiority to support warfighting missions. The notice calls for contractor assistance in acquiring new technical improvements, including engineering and design testing, to fully integrate NAVWAR into military policy, doctrine and operations.

The notice outlines three required technical capabilities: Contractors must have extensive knowledge of NAVWAR vulnerabilities, capabilities and system operations; the ability to provide NAVWAR training to warfighters and other personnel; and expertise in providing NAVWAR engineering, operations research and modeling/simulation.

Responses to the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract are due May 9. An industry day is currently underway and will conclude April 20, according to the notice.
