(a) Background:
The Spectroscopy and Infrared Signatures (SIRS) group at DRDC Valcartier develops and uses high-precision instruments that are mounted on a turret so that the instruments can be pivoted in azimuth and elevation. The turret can be used to track airborne platforms. The current version of the turret can be controlled in various ways, such as by:
- entering commands;
- using a joystick;
- using a tracking aid; and
- automatic video-tracking.
Purchased in 1982, the turret was upgraded in 2004, going from an analog control to a digital control. However, because of the uniqueness and non-availability of certain parts, we are forced to consider a new upgrade to ensure its longevity. To that end and to facilitate future upgrades, we plan to replace the identified components with components that are more readily available on the market. Figure 1, on the following page, shows a diagram (rear view) of the turret and a photo (front view).
The goal of this requirement is to obtain a modern version of the turret that is easy to maintain, even when it is being used on deployment.

(c) Maximum Funding: The maximum funding available for the contract resulting from the bid solicitation is $434,877.00. Applicable Taxes are extra.
