The Defense Innovation Unit has issued an Area of Interest solicitation in search of technologies that use commercial or internet of things devices to track and locate a path in global positioning systems and environments without external networks.
The competitive solicitation, which ends on Oct. 25, is being conducted in accordance with the merit-based Commercial Solutions Opening process and may result in follow-on contract awards for the winning bidders, DIU said Thursday.
DIU is looking for companies that can develop an interoperable, multi-sensor device that requires low power and has low emission.
Offerings can be part of an IoT suite and designed for visual plotting in mapping systems. A proposed system must have an open architecture interface and user experience, and have security functions for extreme environmental conditions or adversarial countermeasures.
Interested parties may fill a submission form on the DIU website.
