On 31 July – 1 August, SOFWERX, in collaboration with SOF AT&L and USSOCOM PEO-FW, will host a Capability Assessment Event (CAE) to become informed of the current state and near future state of technology regarding Video Display Terminals (VDT) to satisfy a form-fit-function solution that replaces existing displays. This event is being conducted in order to identify potential sources that may possess the expertise and capabilities to meet the requirements to supply a qualified, in-production, replacement VDT for use in the United States Air Force MC 130J aircraft. The VDTs ultimately produced should require no hardware modifications to the aircraft and must be compatible with current aircraft systems.

The CAE will consist of one-on-one meetings between Government team members and selected individual industry partners. Each presentation should discuss industry’s perspective on the benefits, opportunities, and challenges of implementing their proposed VDT solutions. Each one-on-one session will be approximately 45 minutes in length. The CAE will be held at the UNCLASSIFIED level.

Open now until Mar 2019

The Network is a force multiplier for all its nodes, allowing problems and solutions to be considered within a global ecosystem.
