OceanServer's Iver2 platform is the only COTS vehicle that is single man-portable and open (in terms of hardware and software accessibility/modifiability by researchers) that is available for sale. The openness of this platform will allow NSWC PCD researchers to develop a vehicle-in-the-loop simulation as part of NSWC-PCD's Autonomy Testbed. The Iver2 vehicle is the sole COTs platform that has the openness required to integrate with other Autonomy Testbed components.
Delivery will be to the Naval Support Activity Panama City, Receiving Officer, Building 100, 101 Vernon Ave, Panama City Beach, FL 32407-7018.
This requirement will be made under the Simplified Acquisition Procedures and Other Than Full and Open Competition as authorized by FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(ii), Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements. The Iver2 AUV-EP-42 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle is currently in production by OceanServer Technology. The Government does not have the drawings or additional data necessary for another vendor to manufacture the Iver2 platform and upgrade/modify the system. The OceanServer Technology, Inc. is the original equipment manufacturer.
This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals.
