Army GTACS II – The 11th Hour
Russell Smith | May 9, 2018
After 3 years in gestation, the $5B GTACS II competition is rapidly nearing its climax. With only 45 days before final RFP, the bidders are scrambling to get their teams in order.
There will likely be 100 bidders more or less for the 30 spots on this lucrative contract. This competition is not for the faint hearted.
Clearly, preparing a winning answer to the Technical Volume will require best-in-industry talent. Especially solutions and writer personnel.
Even a cursory review of the spec reveals the depth of difficulty. In a mere 55 pages you have to prove how you can reliably develop, integrate, test, and manage complex hardware / software systems in a worldwide SATCOM environment. In accordance with most exacting Government and industry standards. While assuring low risk and at the same time including innovative technology. All in a way that will win favor with demanding reviewers.
How does this compare to patting your head and rubbing your stomach in 11 different dimensions?
