UIPE Concept CBRN Protection Integrated into an Ensemble Identical in Fit and Form to the Combat Uniform Incremented Development to Produce Technologies with Improved Military Utility
UIPE Objective The objective of programs initiated from UIPE is to fully integrate CBRN/TIM protection into an ensemble, identical in fit and form to the combat uniform (including mask/helmet integration and protective boots and gloves) . . . The UIPE goal is to increase warfighter operational performance in a CBRN environment through critical examination of threat data, emerging technologies, and user tradespace while seeking to balance factors like protection, heat stress, durability, antimicrobial properties, launderability, self–detoxification, protection time, etc… Accordingly, UIPE will provide incremental technologies with military utility that are modular in their function, and are an improvement in form and fit over current systems…. 9
Increment 1 UIPE I1 SOCOM USN UIPE Capability Triad 10
UIPE I1 System Description • UIPE I1 is a Single Supplemental System Providing CBRN Individual Protection to the Warfighter through a Reduction in Physiological and Psychological Burdens Associated with the Weight, Bulk, Thermal Strain, and Encumbrance of Wearing CBRN Protective Gear • UIPE I1 Capabilities will Include: • Protection from CB Warfare Agents to Include Retention of Protective Capability after Exposure to Environmental Contaminants • Suitability of Wear while Performing Combat Operations on Land or at Sea, in Multiple Climates, with Minimal Impact on Combat Effectiveness • Ability to Tailor Materiel Solution (“Toolbox Concept”) to Optimize Protection Based on Mission and Threat • Compatibility with Current and Developmental CBRN Protective Ensemble Components and Individual Combat Equipment
UIPE I1 Program Strategy As the first increment of the UIPE, UIPE I1 supports a broader evolutionary acquisition strategy as an enabling material technology and risk mitigation for future UIPE increments… Flexibility to accelerate fielding of the UIPE I1 to meet warfighter needs through the use of Modified COTS products or Non-Developmental Items (NDI) is key to the overall strategy… The intent is to field a UIPE I1 capability that reduces thermal and physiological burden over current CBRN garments. Trade-offs in CBRN protection may be considered to attain thermal burden reduction. These capability improvements will enable increased mission time and reduced risk of heat casualties in the operational environment.

Contracting - Acquisition Strategy Modified COTS/NDI Exploring Potential Set-Asides IDIQ contract 1 or more contracts, each single award Total value of requirement is ~$130M Base year for TD, EMD, LRIP 4 option years for FRP RFP and Contract will cover Technology Development Engineering & Manufacturing Development Low Rate Initial Production Full Rate Production Associated T&E
Contracting - Selection/Gates Proposal Evaluation Gov. downselects offeror(s) for EMD Phase Contract Award/Delivery Order 0001 Awardee(s) deliver additional samples for T&E DT/OT Gov. downselects contractor(s) for LRIP Delivery Order 0002 Contractor(s) delivers FA, LRIP Lot MOT&E Gov. downselects contractor(s) for FRP Delivery Order 0003 Contractor(s) begin production on FRP lots Pre Award PostAward
Contracting – Proposal Components Samples 3 garments sized for thermal manikin 2 additional garments: a size larger, a size smaller 5 linear yards of material, at least 36” wide, one continuous piece Volumes Volume I – Administrative Volume II – Technical Volume III – Management Volume IV – Performance Risk Volume V – Small Business Participation Plan (if required) Volume VI - Price
Contracting – Proposal Evaluation Key Points: Technical evaluation will use information provided in the proposal, and information generated from Government testing A company with no Government past performance will receive a “neutral” rating Technical, Management evaluations will be adjectival (Outstanding, Acceptable, Unacceptable) with Risk Assessment Past performance will receive a High/Med/Low risk assessment Price evaluation will be for fairness, reasonableness, and price competitiveness and will NOT be given an adjectival or risk rating Subcontracting Plan – Per FAR 19.705 A rating of “Unacceptable” in any subfactor means “Unacceptable” at the proposal level Government will use TRADEOFFS TO DETERMINE BEST VALUE
Contracting – Post Award Downselects The Government will not issue Delivery Orders for LRIP or FRP unless the Government determines that the Contractor’s candidate system meets the performance specifications, technology readiness levels and manufacturing readiness levels described in the System Performance Specification. System Performance AND Production capacity/capability requirements must be met.
