The Marine Corps is searching for technical and engineering support at its Joint Interoperability of Tactical Command and Control Systems project at Camp Pendleton, Calif.
The Marine Corps Tactical Systems Support Activity issued a request for proposals on FedBizOpps today, with responses due by Dec. 17. The activity is looking for contractors who are currently on GSA schedules for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence.
The winning contractor will support interoperability standards and certification testing, and interoperability certification testing and analysis. The contractor will also help develop and maintain technical standards and offer interoperability support to the Marine Corps Network Design Facility for design, implementation and operation of interoperable Joint Tactical Information Distribution System networks.
JINTACCS is a joint effort, including members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, and unified and specified commands. The Defense Information Systems Agency has oversight responsibility.
The project's mission is the joint interoperability of C4I systems through compatible hardware and equipment, uniformity of language and format for information exchange, and common operating procedures.
