This combined sources to sole source notice is issued by the Army *********** Command-Redstone ********* in support of the United States (U.S.) Army Space and Missile Defense Command Forces Strategic Command for the purpose of ********** market research to ********* if there are sources with advanced technology test and research and development capability to perform the effort as described below. The effort is titled Advanced Technology Test and Development Program (ATTDP) formerly known as Aerophysics Test Program (ATP). The ATP effort is currently being performed by the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) under contract W9113M-12-C-0031. It is anticipated ACC-RSA will issue a sole source award to UAH for the ATTDP effort under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(3) as implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-3(a)(1) and (a) (2)(ii). The award will be a three-year base effort with two (2) one-year option periods for an estimated value of $47 million. The U.S. Government (Government) will ********* whether or not to proceed with an acquisition and, if it does decide to proceed, the best acquisition strategy that will meet the needs of the Government.

DESCRIPTION OF EFFORT:


The ATTDP continues and extends the efforts performed under the original ATP contract that went into effect on September 19, 1989, and continues through ATP IV, which took effect on September 25, 2012. Under ATP I, the essential capability to perform hypervelocity/aerophysics research in support of strategic, theater, and tactical missile defense requirements were established. Test programs in support of anti-satellite, lethality and target hardening, kill assessment, and Patriot warhead development were accomplished during ATP I. Test programs in support of Logistics Management Institute, Man-Machine Interface and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense kill assessment input for computational lethality codes; advanced tactical long-rod penetrators and tactical nosecones; and research in kinetic energy were accomplished in ATP II. This effort demonstrated capability to perform experiments and analyses applicable to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA); USASMDC/ARSTRAT; U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM); Defense Nuclear Agency; U.S. Air Force; Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); and private industry. Later, Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) testing and improvement, flight vehicle weather encounter, lower velocity launch operations, and reverse ballistics test capabilities were established under ATP III. ATP IV is a continuation of the type of efforts performed under ATP I through III.


The hypervelocity aerophysics research capability permits sub-scale to full-scale ground based tests. Facility upgrades implemented under ATP I - IV, allowed Y2 scale replicas of theater missile defense interceptors to be launched over most of the expected range of intercept strike velocities, strike angles, and interceptor pitch angles. Ground tests provide a relatively low cost/fast response method to obtain experimental data of systems concep...
