The High Energy Fiber Laser (HEFL) Project Office (Code 4.L.700D) of the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) intends to procure technical assistance and systems engineering in the development, testing, and fielding of the High Energy Laser Weapons System (HELWS). NAWCWD serves as a focal point for defining HEFL system and sub-system requirements, system design and integration plans, prototype systems development, and testing and evaluation (T&E). Under this effort the contractor will develop and demonstrate prototype HELWS subsystems, which will be integrated together and installed in a rotary-winged aircraft for a series of airborne laser weapon demonstrations.

Specific activities to be performed include: Completion of the Integration Structure(IS) design, building, testing, and qualifying required hardware, conducting and delivering qualification testing and analysis, generating drawings and technical reports, installation of subsystems into the IS, development of written procedures for system test support, design and building of special test/handling equipment, providing system engineering support and execution of system risk management and configuration management tasks.

It is anticipated that one award will be made to fulfill this requirement under the authority of and in accordance with FAR Part 15 - Contracting by Negotiation.

This is a full and open competition..
