REQUEST FOR ***********

Product Combat Terrain *********** Systems

1.0 Description

1.1 The U.S. Army ********** Center (AGC), in support of the Product , Combat Terrain *********** Systems (PD CTIS), has a to procure ********** Off-The-Shelf (COTS) ********* Surveying (AISI) providing Total Station, Imaging, Robotic and 3D Laser Scanning capabilities in a single instrument. In addition to the instrument, the AISI system will include all ancillary hardware and software (operating on a Windows 10 baseline) needed to support Army survey operations using the instrument.

1.2 THIS IS A REQUEST FOR *********** (RFI) ONLY. This RFI is issued solely for *********** and planning purposes - it does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a promise to issue an RFP in the future. This request for *********** does not commit the Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever. Further, the Army is not at this time seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals. Offerors are advised that the U.S. Government will not pay for any *********** or administrative costs incurred in response to this RFI; all costs associated with responding to this RFI will be solely at the interested party's expense. Not responding to this RFI does not preclude participation in any future RFP, if any is issued.

2.0 Background
The Army has procured, trained and fielded 435 AISIs (Trimble model 5601), which are approaching end of life and are in need of replacement with current technology. The U.S. Army surveying missions require equipment that can perform basic control survey; construction survey; topographic survey, airfield engineering and NAVAID survey; field classification and inspection survey. Additionally the Army will depend on Robotic and 3D scanning capability to support visual precision in diverse applications and terrain such as Infrastructure assessments, Urban topography environments, Civil infrastructure, Telecommunications, Utilities (water and wastewater, electric, gas, refuse), Transportation networks (primary and secondary airports/roads, rail, waterways), Tunnels, Overpasses, Slope measurements, Grade
measurements, Structural integrity assessments, and Interior (sprinklers, light fixtures, alarm systems, ingress/egress) documentation.

3.0 Requested ***********

Response may include vendor's standard datasheets for the significant hardware components and software packages. If any of the below requested *********** is included on a vendor provided datasheet, respondent may reference the datasheet.
The following *********** is requested:
a. Survey System contents, including hardware and software, to satisfy the capabilities identified in 2.0, above, and reference 8.0, below. Include nomenclature, model number, and quantity.
b. Horizontal and vertical angle measurement range and accuracy.
c. Automatic level compensation range and accuracy.
d. Distance measurement range and accuracy versus visibility conditions, with and without prism(s).
e. Scanning measurement rate, field-of-view range, distance range, point density range, and accuracy versus visibility conditions.
