RFI POSTING DATED 12 JAN 2012

69–Request for Information (RFI) for a new EST II Program:
The purpose of this RFI is to identify companies which have technologies and expertise that can be or have been applied to the Small Arms Training task.

TITLE: ENGAGEMENT SKILLS TRAINER (EST II) – REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) dated January 12, 2012

Notice Type: RFI
Response Date: 15 days after Hands on Demo of EST or NLT 5 March 2012
Original Set aside: N/A
Set Aside: N/A
Classification Code: 69 – Training Aids and Devices
NAICS Code: 333- Machinery Manufacturing / 333319 – Other Commercial and Service Industry Machinery Manufacturing

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE ACQUISITION:
The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), Program Management Combined Arms Tactical Trainers (PM CATT), Project Manager for Ground Combat TacticalTrainers (PM GCTT) is contemplating a new contract for a technical refresh of fielded Engagement Skills Trainers (EST)/marksmanship trainers and their weapons to a EST II, procurement of EST II systems and EST II weapons, New Equipment Training, Pre-Planned Product Improvements (P3I) on the EST II systems and weapons , and logistic support. This contract encompasses the application of current and emerging technologies to provide the required training capability through a technical refresh of its current systems and weapons, as well as procurement of new systems and weapons. This Request for Information (RFI) solicits industry’s feedback augmenting the information received in the previous EST RFI dated 24 May 2011.

PEO STRI is currently developing its acquisition approach as well as the Period of Performance (POP) of the contract. However, award will be made to that Offeror who offers the Best Overall Value to the Government. This acquisition will require access to information classified as quote mark Sensitive but Unclassified quote mark or quote mark For Official Use Only quote mark .

BACKGROUND:
The current Engagement Skills Trainer (EST) is a simulator that provides marksmanship training and trains Soldiers on virtually all aspects of firearms training from calibrating weapons, to weapons qualification, to collective fire scenarios in numerous environments. The EST is a unit/institutional, indoor, multipurpose, multi-lane, small arms, crew-served and individual anti-tank training simulation that saves currently required ammunition resources, operation and personnel tempo, as well as travel time and costs to and from ranges. It enables training across three different modes: individual marksmanship; small unit (collective) gunnery and tactical training; and judgmental use of force (shoot/don’t shoot (S/DS)), which includes Escalation of Force/graduated response scenarios. It simulates weapon training events that lead to live-fire individual or crew weapon qualification and training events currently not resourced under Standards in Training Commission (STRAC). Squad leaders are able to control and evaluate individual, fire team, and squad performance on numerous types of small arms weapons used by U.S. forces and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. The EST Basic Rifle Marksmanship (BRM) training reduces the requirements for remedial live-firetraining. Soldiers must ‘pass’ marksmanship gates on the EST prior to going on the live range. Using the EST capability of rifle cant, trigger pressure, and before-the-shot, during-the-shot, and after-the-shot After Action Reviews (AARs), trainers can quickly identify and correct problems thus raising confidence and first-time qualifications. Currently, the Army uses EST for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) qualification as well as night-fire qualification.

INTENDED CAPABILITIES FOR NEW EST II CONTRACT:
1. Primarily EST II shall provide high fidelity marksmanship training events utilizing both performance and results feedback. Trainees must be able to zero on the EST, apply the corrections to a battle-sight zeroed weapon, and get reasonable accuracy on a live-fire range.
a. System point accuracy 0.2 mils with round to round ammunition dispersion based on U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) ballistics.
b. Pseudo real-time Line Of Sight (LOS) correlation to the projection screen.
c. Pseudo real-time Point of Aim (POA)/Point of Impact (POI) for all rounds fired.
d. High fidelity After Action Review (AAR) at student and Instructor Operator Station (IOS).
e. High fidelity weapon interface for Form, Fit and Function with Magazine loading.
f. All U.S. Army standard Courses of Fire (COF) with results feedback on doctrine scorecard.
g. Provides pre and post aim point trace for individual weapons.
h. Provides burst by burst trace for machine gun weapons.

2. Ability to provide training events that support realistic physics-based modeling for environments and models with variable outcomes.

3. Sufficient intellectual property rights in the interface protocols for the Government to allow a third-party contractor to maintain and repair the system and its weapons.

4. Ability to support High Definition Television (HDTV) format interactive video training events for judgmental use of force SDS training.

5. Provide ongoing ability to integrate the Army POR for gaming (currently Virtual Battle space 2 (VBS 2) into the system.

HANDS ON INDUSTRY OPPORTUNITY:
Respondents are invited to use the EST located at PEO STRI, Orlando, for a period of up to 2 business days from 23 January 2012 – 24 February 2012. Coordinate times with Sara Creely or MAJ Robert DeGaine. The intent is to provide a hands-on demonstration and physical inspection of the EST.

ORIGINAL RFI POSTING DATED 24 MAY 2011

The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), Project Manager for Ground Combat Tactical Trainers (PM GCTT) is interested in identifying viable technologies and a new approach for the development of a EST II, Program of Record (POR) (EST 2000) to support the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) schools; Army Active Component, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard unit with a small arms training system which trains and enhances the U.S. Army Basic Pistol/ Rifle Marksmanship Program.

Market Research is being conducted to identify technologies and production capabilities of industry that could support the next generation EST II Program POR. The purpose of this RFI is to identify companies which have technologies and expertise that can be or have been applied to the Small Arms Training Task.

The EST II Program POR is exploring the possibilities of applying current and emerging technologies to provide the required training capability. One of the goals of this market research is to identify technical approaches which transfer the burden of marksmanship fault identification from the human instructor to the training system which could then potentially provide remediation for fault correction.

The current system (EST 2000) is defined as a system which is a unit / institutional, indoor, multipurpose, multi-lane, small arms, crew-served and individual anti-tank training simulation that enables training across three different modes: individual marksmanship; small unit (collective) gunnery and tactical training; and judgmental use of force (shoot/don’t shoot), which includes Escalation of Force / graduated response scenarios.

Interested Sources should provide the following information:

1). Pertinent Company administrative data as to large or small business category IAW the designated NAICS. Each Offeror is to identify whether or not the company is a STOC II prime.

2). Company history.

3). Identify company interest in the program as a Prime contractor or subcontractor to a prime. Each Offeror is to provide recent program history (last 10 years) of company past experience in delivering small armstrainers or components of small arms trainers.

4). Identification of technologies which have potential and/or demonstrated application to the small arms training task. Each identified technology is to be categorized by Technology Readiness Level rating system.

Responses to this RFI are to not exceed 15 single sided, letter-sized pages. Font is not to be smaller than 12 points.

This announcement is published for market research purposed only. This notice does not constitute an invitation for bids or a Request for Proposal (RFP) and is not a commitment by the U.S. Government to procure subject products. Responses in any form are not offers and the Government is under no obligation to award a contract as a result of this announcement. No funds are available to pay for the preparation of responses to this announcement.

Submit RFI responses by 1600 Eastern Standard Time 14 June 2011, to the following email address:
