Title: Weapons Systems or Commercial Capabilities for Ukraine Security Assistance
1. Customer Description
This Request for Information (RFI) is being issued by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Acquisition, on behalf of the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)). OUSD(A&S) enables the delivery and sustainment of secure, resilient, and preeminent capabilities to the warfighter and international partners quickly and cost effectively.
As the conflict in Ukraine continues, the Biden Administration is working around the clock to fulfill Ukraine's priority security assistance requests.
Russia's unprovoked invasion has highlighted the importance of frequent, direct dialogue between industry and commercial partners and the Department of Defense to ensure that we are able to support three strategic objectives:
- Delivering critical commercial and military capabilities to Ukraine;
- Enhancing the preparedness of our own forces; and
- Supporting our allies and partners in bolstering their defense capabilities.
In particular, the Department is exploring options which would accelerate production and build more capacity across the industrial base for weapons and equipment that can be rapidly exported, deployed with minimal training, and that are proven effective in the battlefield
To that end, the Department seeks information from across industry on weapons systems or other commercial capabilities related to air defense, anti-armor, anti-personnel, coastal defense, counter battery, unmanned aerial systems, and communications (e.g., secure radios, satellite internet).
