Default New USAF RFP published for GPS III satellites

New USAF RFP published for GPS III satellites

SMC issued a request for proposals on Jan. 8, with rather complicated
terms. The first eight GPS III satellites are already under contract,
and two have been built, but delivery and launch schedules have
dragged. The Air Force incorporated several other payload
requirements for the satellites, beyond those of new GPS signals

This is the Air Forces third effort to find a builder.

The RFP is for 11+ Phase 1 Production Readiness Feasibility
Assessment. It covers GPS III space vehicles 11 and beyond. The
process, if followed as the Air Force envisions, will award up to
three relatively small fixed-price contracts.

According to an Air Force press release, The scope of this effort
includes the current GPS III SV0108 technical baseline with the
addition of redesigned Nuclear Detonation Detection System (NDS),
Search and Rescue/GPS (SAR/GPS), and Laser Retroreflector Array (LRA)
payloads, Unified S-Band (USB) compliance, Regional Military
Protection capability No changes are allowed to the GPS Next
Generation Operational Control System (OCX) or Military GPS User
Equipment (MGUE) interfaces.
