By Staff report
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- The Technical Center of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command will present an Industry Day for Low Cost Responsive Launch Capability at the Digital Theater in the Saturn V Hall, U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville, Ala., June 13 from 8 a.m. until noon.
The purpose of the Industry Day will be for the U.S. Army to provide an overview of its plans for the solicitation for a low cost responsive launch capability and to answer questions from industry related to these plans. The Industry Day will also afford an opportunity for industry interaction related to this topic. A separate special announcement may be issued via Federal Business Opportunities website, or FEDBIZOPPS, detailing any additional required information.
USASMDC/ARSTRAT is partnered with other Department of Defense organizations on a Joint Capability Technology Demonstration to develop technologies that will lead to a responsive, low cost, tactical launch capability for the military.
SMDC is contemplating soliciting one or more vendors to design, develop, integrate, conduct ground testing, and execute at least one orbital flight demonstration of a low cost, responsive, tactical space launch vehicle.
More information about this initiative can be accessed by reviewing the Request for Information posting on FEDBIZOPPS at: http://1.usa.gov/1nHwD1r
