Nature of Requirements:
Title:Studies of Emerging Technologies for Infrared Guidance
systems.
Objectives:The work objectives for this contract are the
following:
To study the emerging technologies in the field of IR guidance
systems using IR source projection systems, laser sources and
operational field conditions test facilities at DRDC Valcartier;
Develop the interfaces required to perform experimental
measurements, and integrate them into existing equipment;
Participate in field or laboratory trials to validate the
experimental results;
Study the optical, software, electronic and mechanical design of
the various
technologies;
Participate in experimental data collection and analysis; and
Develop and improve various characterization methodologies.

Background
IR guidance systems introduce, among other things, imaging or
pseudo-imaging guiding techniques, as well as sophisticated
mechanisms for countermeasure discrimination. The study of
those techniques and mechanisms is one of the aims of this
contract. The study must include, in particular, an evaluation
of the sensitivity of those technologies against classic
countermeasures. In addition, the emergence of new directional
coun-termeasures (DIRCM) requires an evaluation of their effects
on the various technologies studied in order to assess their
advantages and limitations.

To fulfill these needs, DRDC Valcartier operates facilities for
projecting IR sources to characterize electro-optical systems
and evaluate various classic countermeasures, laser sources for
studying laser interference phenomena, and mobile facilities for
validating experimental measurements and the functioning of
countermeasure systems in field
Trials.

In order to achieve the project objectives, this contract will
carryout 7 tasks.
Task 1 - Study of electronic design
Task 2 - Study of software design
Task 3 - Electro-optical characterization of an IR guidance
system
Task 4 - Analysis and update (as needed) of the optical design
and production
Task 5 - Evaluation of the susceptibility/efficiency of an IR
guidance system in the presence of disturbances such as decoy
flares, noise, laser, etc.
Task 6 - Design of interfaces adapted to the new technologies
studied
Task 7 - Participation in a campaign of field or laboratory
trials

Period of Contract
The period of the resulting contract is from April 1st 2013 to
March 31, 2016.

Work location:
The Contractor must perform the work on site at Defence Research
and Development Canada.

Client department :
The services will be rendered to Defence Research and

the bid solicitation is $900,000.00 CAD (Goods and Services Tax
or the Harmonized Sales Tax extra, as appropriate). Bids valued
in excess of this amount will be considered non-responsive.
This disclosure does not commit Canada to pay the maximum
funding available.

Intellectual property rights

Any intellectual property rights arising from the performance of
the Work under the resulting contract will belong to Canada.

(b)    meet all mandatory technical evaluation criteria;
(c)    obtain the required minimum points for each criterion and
each group of criteria with a pass mark;
(d)    obtain the required minimum points overall for the technical
evaluation criteria which are subject to point rating.
Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) or (d) will be declared
non-responsive. Neither the responsive bid that receives the
highest number of points nor the one that proposed the lowest
price will necessarily be accepted. The responsive bid with the

by dividing the evaluated price of the bid by the number of
points obtained for the point rated technical evaluation
criteria.
In the event that two or more responsive bids have the same
lowest evaluated price per point, the responsive bid which
obtained the highest number of points overall for the point
rated technical evaluation criteria will be recommended for
