* The bill also cut $5 million from the
C3 Countermeasures line due to "unjustified increase, which left $14.6
million in the program.

* $3.5 million was added to the Aerospace Sensors line (Applied Research)
for spectrum monitoring technologies;
* $6 million was added to the Technology Transition Program (Advanced
Component Development) for the
Counter-Electronics High-Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project
(CHAMP);
* $4 million was cut from the EW Development program (EMD) because of
"forward financing;"
* the B-2 Defensive Management System
- Modernization (EMD) was reduced by
$26.6 million (to $289 million) due to
"excess funds;"
* similarly, $6 million was cut from the
F-15 Eagle Passive Active Warning
Survivability System (EPAWSS) EMD
program for the same reason, reducing its 2017 budget to $250.7 million.
The FY2017 Appropriations Bill was
passed by Congress and signed into law
early last month. The FY2018 defense
budget request was released as this issue of JED was going to press. - JED Staff

IN BRIEF
The Naval Surface Warfare Center
(Crane, IN) has issued a request for information (RFI) for shipboard sustainment for the SLQ-32 shipboard electronic
countermeasure system. Information is
being sought to support all variants of
the SLQ-32, including (V)1-(V)5 variants
being upgraded to V(6) and V(7) systems
via the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP), and would
cover the 150 US Navy shipboard systems, plus another 30 Coast Guard and
Foreign Military Sales systems. The RFI
seeks details on how companies might
offer sustainment support for all systems at a fixed price over five to seven
years, including legacy transition, phase
out and disposal of legacy systems and
planning for technology insertion and
refresh. Responses are due June 30. The
solicitation number is N0016417SNC04.
The point of contact is Kelli (Suzanne)

Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) and CSRA
LLC (Chantilly, VA) have each received a
$10 million contract from the Air Force
Research Lab, Directed Energy Directorate (Kirtland AFB, NM) for research in
the technical area of Cyber/Electronic
Warfare Applications (CEWA), which
include study, development, support
and enhancement of innovative concepts where high power electromagnetic (HPEM) technology can be used
to complement and enhance EW, such
as identifying areas where HPEM can be
used for Cyber/EW via study of single
pulse concepts and repetitive pulse concepts, as well as development and demonstration of new concepts. Booz Allen
Hamilton (McLean, VA) was awarded a
similar contract in March.

The US Army Contracting Command,
in support of Program Executive Office
(PEO) Intelligence Electronic Warfare
& Sensors (IEW&S), Project Management Office (PMO) Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) (Huntsville,
AL) has issued a draft RFP for a program
titled "Prototyping and Production of
Limited Interim Missile Warning System (LIMWS) Quick Reaction Capability
(QRC)." The LIMWS is intended to meet
a critical protection need for Army helicopters by bridging the gap between
the AAR-57 Common Missile Warning
System and the next Army program of
record for threat warning systems. (See
JED, May 2017, p. 15, for more.) The QRC
requires the design, development, fabrication, integration and testing of the
B-kit for the LIMWS, plus similar A-kits
for the UH-60M. A pre-solicitation meeting was held mid-May in Huntsville and
responses for the draft RFP were due May
24. The solicitation number is W58RGZ17-R-0211. The point of contact is Stefanie Polk, stefanie.f.polk.civ@mail.mil.

Air Force Materiel Command (Hill
AFB, UT) will hold an Industry Day on
June 14 at Hill AFB, UT, in support of
a sources-sought notice for spares and
production of the Joint Threat Emitter
(JTE). The JTE provides EW threat simulators that replicate surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery threats
for aircrew training. The government
has an additional need for systems and
spares to replace aging EW training
equipment. Responses are due June 8.
The solicitation number is JTE_Spares_
