The Air Domain Awareness Subject Matter Expert supports the Pacific Air Forces. Specifically the Theater Joint Force Air Component Commander (T-JFACC) requires multi-domain awareness of air entities operation in or affecting U.S. and partners’ activity in the Pacific Region. The contractor shall conduct air domain awareness (ADA)-related operations to enhance theater situational awareness; conduct gap analysis in regard to capabilities in theater and operational requirements; and develop recommended solutions based upon gap analysis for desired integration of ISR data link capabilities and processes. Work shall be accomplished primarily at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI, and other temporary duty (TDY) locations as specified by the Government.
- The contractor shall recommend Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs), provide training, support, and guidance to Theater Tactical Data Link (TDL), Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), and Operations participants to enhance air activity reporting and collaboration among theater ADA participants.
- The contractor shall evaluate ADA systems utilized within the theater, and support the integration, improvement, and development for program offices’ sustainment of existing data link technologies, including but not limited to commercial-off-the shelf (COTS)/Government off the shelf (GOTS) software.
- The contractor, in concert with theater ADA contributors, shall identify specific ISR and amplification
information provided by multiple sources to enhance or fill information gaps. This data may be directly sent to TDLs
within theater, to enhance situational awareness of air activity throughout the region.
- The contractor shall perform software and/or hardware evaluations of existing architectures, networking, and connectivity,
and recommend solutions to make ISR data more readily available to various theater users at the operational and/or
tactical level. Contractor may identify interoperability requirements and assist with integration into and through the
existing tactical data links’ architecture and modify theater TTPs as required.
- The contractor will leverage their existing subject matter expertise, experience, and theater guidelines, regulations,
and policies to provide software, tool, and process training to ADA participants, partners, and collaborators. This
training may be at the primary work center at Joint Base Pearl-Harbor Hickam (JBPH-H) or at other specified TDY
locations as identified by the government COR and supervisors. Contractor will document and enhance theater
training programs in order to ensure ADA participants adhere to theater norms, guidelines, and policies.
- The contractor shall provide primary operational support to PACAF for the identification of unique information to
support Department of Defense (DOD) emerging capabilities and efforts, to include but not limited to: identification
and integration of new or unexploited information systems, unique friendly, enemy, or neutral information
sources; development of associated TTPs for the timely, accurate, and complete forwarding of tactically actionable
and relevant information via TDL; migration of USAF Combat Identification (CID) information into the
INDOPACOM Multi-Tactical Data Link Network (MTN).
- The contractor shall stay current on all technical and functional aspects of ADA tools used by the theater, and vet
tool requirements through the PACAF government lead, informing the Government COR of all recommended changes
- The contractor shall recommend innovative TTPs for improving data exchange to improve situational awareness
and satisfy warfighter requirements.
- The contractor shall integrate with theater Joint Interface Control Officers (JICO) to identify the data link
architecture and network design parameters needed to move data among the various operational units within
the INDOPACOM Multi-Tactical Data Link Network (MTN). JICO interaction shall include MTN expertise and
other joint multi-TDL operational infrastructure points-of-contact for inter-service coordination. The contractor
shall support the utilization of and training on operational equipment configurations with ADA participants.
- The contractor shall provide research and development to support testing and evaluation of ADA systems, and
make recommendations for the integration, test, installation, evaluation, troubleshooting, and training for sustainment
and enhancement of existing data link architecture and network design to support emerging capabilities, ISR
integration (traditional and non-traditional), and interoperability in support of CID into the MTN. This includes but is
not limited to COTS/GOTS.
- The contractor shall generate, review, edit, and disseminate various ADA-related products for a variety of
theater users. Customers will vary, from Commanders, to Joint users (e.g. US Navy Fleet Intelligence Centers), to
National Intelligence Community members, as well as local JBPH-H analysts. Contractor is responsible for
exploiting, analyzing, and/or leveraging all-source intelligence products, including but not limited to: SIGINT,
GEOINT, HUMINT, and OSINT, in order to enhance ADA products and update air track activity within national and
TDL-related tools. Contractor will responsibly coordinate and collaborate with mission partners in order to enhance
theater-wide air domain awareness in accordance with published guidelines.
- The contractor shall generate and disseminate finished ADA products on behalf of the theater. This shall include, but is not limited to: briefings, after action reports, test results, TTP modifications and recommendations, ADA
software enhancement requirements, discrepancy reports, and architecture design recommendations. The contractor
shall use COTS/GOTS products to maintain, track and update applicable documents.
- The contractor shall ensure overall responsiveness, adherence to schedule, ability to adapt to schedule changes,
responsible and cooperative behavior, data management, technical quality of work, and management of contractor’s
including level of understanding of the T-JFACC mission and commitment to customer satisfaction.
- The contractor shall ensure risk identification and mitigation associated with this requirement
- Work with Contract Officer Representative (COR) to ensure national and operational data is available and accessible to conduct ADA operations with the theater. Identify additional information and information sources that may
provide enhanced situational awareness via the tactical data links architecture, and work with government agencies to
deliver new data sources to the ADA architecture.
- Develop and deliver recurring status briefings to T-JFACC leaders and managers, and provide recommendations
and assessments for theater decisionmakers.
- Provide operations support such as tracking, managing, and utilizing all ADA resources and overseeing general
operations needed to achieve stated objectives.
- Provide support to the testing and operational fielding of additional TDL-compatible data, equipment, and systems.
