Army Looking for a Few Good Businesses

US Army Looking For Small Businesses To Advance RCV Sustainment

Defense Daily (5/6, Subscription Publication) reported the US Army “announced Thursday it is starting a new small-business cohort looking for innovative ideas to apply sensor capabilities for sustainment of its future fleet of Robotic Combat Vehicles (RCV).” Phase one “of the program will include selecting up to 10 firms, who will each receive $200,000, to work on their ideas over a 12-week period. Then, the Army will downselect five businesses to move forward and receive up to $1.5 million each to continue refining concepts over another two years.” The RCV Sustainment cohort “is the service’s latest Special Program Awards for Required Technology Needs (SPARTN) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to bring in non-traditional partners to work on novel challenges.” The Army “recently selected five small businesses to refine concepts for delivering a faster rate of fire for the future Extended Range Cannon Artillery system under the SPARTN SBIR Fire Faster Cohort (Defense Daily, April 16).”

Federal Times (5/6, Judson) reported that the Army Applications Laboratory, which assembled the RCV Sustainment cohort, said it is looking for nontraditional businesses “who can develop hardware and software components around sensors and sensor data to gather, fuse and interpret RCV sustainment requirements and operational capabilities in order to deliver actionable information to decision makers.”
