Nature of Requirements:
Title: Study of optronic and laser technologies for targeting
and ranging requirements for small arms.
Objectives:The work objectives for this contract are the
following:
The objectives of the work are:

1.    To perform a study on existing and potential laser
technologies for ranging and targeting capability for small
arms. The work will be divided into two sections: (i) Existing
state-of-the-art laser ranging and targeting technologies for
small arms; (ii) Potential laser technologies such as the
traditional one dimensional, fix beam, aim-and-shoot to one or
two dimensional laser scanning to two dimensional flash ladar.
Specification, capability and limitation on ranging and
targeting up to 600m standoff distance shall be analysed.

2.    To perform a review on existing literature and furthermore to
perform studies and analysis to determine targeting task
requirement and performance with the use of direct optics and
optronic-type or pixelated, electro-optical viewing devices in
small arm operations. The first goal is to determine both direct
optic and optronic-type viewing devices for their performance
under various parameters and field situations; and secondly, to
answer the ultimate question whether sighting and targeting
performance of optronic-type viewing technologies is comparable,
as good as, or better than that of direct optic viewing
technology. From the latter, capabilities and limits will be
determined and quantitatively compared with both technologies.
Due to the facts that both technologies have distinct
characteristics and also these viewing devices are to produce
the best viewable image to be perceived by human eyes which have
direct implication on sighting and targeting performance, study
and analysis on requirement and performance will make references
and interpretations to human eye characteristics and working
principle regarding sighting and targeting in small arm
operations.

Background
Under the mandate of Future Small Arms Research (FSAR) project,
DRDC will examine existing and future technologies for small arm
capabilities with the objective of identifying technologies
which could increase shot placement accuracy and reduce
engagement time. These technologies include weapon, ammunition,
optics and electro-optics. A series of studies on these subjects
will be performed, some of which may involve literature survey,
simulation and modelling, and experiments with modules and
systems in lab and field, and user trials, etc

Client department

The services will be rendered to Defence Research and
Development Canada (DRDC-Valcartier).

The following tasks will part of the contract:
PHASE 1
Task 1: Specification, capability and limitation of existing
laser ranging and targeting technologies for small arms
Task 2: Literature survey on sighting and targeting requirement
and performance for small arms with respect to human eye working
principle
PHASE 2 (Optional period)
Task 3: Study of potential laser ranging and targeting
technologies for small arms
Task 4: Test and evaluation of procured laser devices
Task 5: Study of sighting and targeting requirement and
performance of in-service direct optic viewing devices
Task 6: Study of sighting and targeting requirement and
performance of optronic-type viewing devices
Task 7:Development of a targeting performance matrix of direct
optic and optronic-type viewing devices
Task 8:Test and evaluation of purcured optronic-type viewing
devices
Task 9: Test and evaluation performance of in-service direct
optic viewing devices
Task 10: Result analysis based on targeting performance matrix



Period of the contract :

The period of the Contract is from date of Contract to March 31,
2013 plus a possibility of additionnal one year period.

Option to Extend the Contract

The Contractor grants to Canada the irrevocable option to extend
the term of the Contract by up to 1 additional 1 year period
under the same conditions. The Contractor agrees that, during
the extended period of the Contract, it will be paid in
accordance with the applicable provisions as set out in the
Basis of Payment.
Canada may exercise this option at any time by sending a written
notice to the Contractor at least 15 calendar days prior to
the Contract expiry date. The option may only be exercised by
the Contracting Authority, and will be evidenced for
administrative purposes only, through a contract amendment.


Intellectual property rights

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

Pursuant to section 01 of Standard Instructions 2003, Bidders
must submit a complete list of names of all individuals who are
currently directors of the Bidder. Furthermore, as determined by
the Special Investigations Directorate, Departmental Oversight
Branch, each individual named on the list may be requested to
complete a Consent to a Criminal Record Verification form and
related documentation.    


Work location:
At the contractor's location or at DRDC Valcartier, 2459 route
de la Bravoure, Quebec, Qc.

Client department :
The services will be rendered to Defence Research and
Development Canada (DRDC-Valcartier).

Technical Criteria evaluation and basis selection
Technical proposal: 25 points, minimum 15 points
Qualification of resources: 56 points, minimum 35 points
Experience of the company 25 points, minimum 12 points
Total: Maximum 106 points, minimum 62 points

Basis of Selection - Lowest Evaluated Price Per Point

1.    To be declared responsive, a bid must:
(a)    comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation;
(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; and
(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
lowest evaluated price per point will be recommended for award
of a contract. The evaluated price per point will be determined
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 the lowest
evaluated price will be recommended for award of a contract.

Other information :
The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Agreement on
Internal Trade (AIT).
The requirement is subject to a preference for Canadian services.
This procurement is subject to the Controlled Goods Program.
