SOSSEC has performed over 100 programs under multiple Other Transaction Agreements with the US Army's Armaments Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC) Since 2009. These programs supported the Army’s mission in Homeland Defense (HLD), and have accounted for the development and testing of significant HLD solutions.

These mission parameters facilitates the transition of knowledge from DoD research and development programs to civilian operational techniques, tactics, and procedures (TTPs); they help protect the homeland.

The Government in conjunction with the SOSSEC Consortium performed a coordinated research and development program designed to develop prototype HLD and related technologies. Prototype Research included efforts to perform specific prototype research and development projects investigating processes that directly advanced the application of HLD missions.  This included development, demonstration, and application of change management plans, techniques, and processes across organizations to achieve successful information sharing approaches.

Technology Development, Evaluation, and Transition included efforts to identify and aid the maturation of selected research technologies and licenses to third parties.  Performance included operating within verification and test facilities to assess products for use in emerging operations.

Technology Integration included efforts toward facilitating integration and ensuring the success of transfer of technologies to ongoing programs, projects and initiatives; and providing, as appropriate for the specific technology, the applicable documentation, certifications, and artifacts that will assist in the transfer of technology to the intended recipient.

Awareness and Demonstration included efforts to provide a showcase for the progression of individually funded programs, demonstration of new/innovative projects and technologies, and validation of system-of-system engineering principles.

We have developed a customized process for navigating the steps toward receiving an Project Award under this OT, and it is specific to the HLD OT, so please do not use the Air Force OT-based process available elsewhere on this website.

While new projects are not currently being accepted on this OT, the HLD Project Proposal 10-Step Process is available here: SOSSEC - Project Proposal 10-Step Process (HLD)

SOSSEC has been awarded a maximum $99,000,000 other transaction agreement for prototypes in command, control, communications, and cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) information sharing information systems.

Contractor will provide development, test, measurement, demonstration, integration, and delivery of prototypes for the Air Force related to C4ISR information sharing information systems.  These systems include: Distributed Common Ground Station; Theater Battle Management Core Systems; Air Operations Center; Open Mission System; Secure View; Information Support Server Environment Guard; cybersecurity environments; Web Temporal Analysis System; Combined Information Data Network Exchange; Collaboration Gateway, and other systems to be determined. Work will be performed at Atkinson, New Hampshire; however, individual prototype projects awarded under this agreement will be performed by consortium members at locations to be determined after award.

The agreement is expected to be complete by Jan. 21, 2021. This agreement is the result of a competitive acquisition with six offers received. Funding will be dependent upon the initial prototype project(s) selected under the terms of the agreement. Air Force Research Lab, Rome, New York, is the contracting activity (FA8750-16-9-0164).

AFLCMC PROPULSION ACQUISITION DIRECTORATE

The Propulsion Acquisition Directorate of the US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC/LPA) established the Propulsion Directorate Consortium Initiative (PCI) as a result of awarding a $45M Other Transaction Authority Prototype Agreement (OTA) on August 1, 2017. The consortium will perform critical research, development, test and evaluation within prototyping projects addressing propulsion needs and the future of the propulsion enterprise.

The award provides the Directorate the opportunity to streamline the acquisition process by rapidly awarding projects under the OTA to members of the SOSSEC Consortium, which is managed by its Consortium Administrative Organization (CAO) or Consortium Manager, SOSSEC, Inc.

SOSSEC, Inc. is responsible for effectively managing the consortium whose members will execute prototyping projects that address military propulsion needs. The period of performance for the award is August 1, 2017 to July 31, 2022.

The scope of propulsion prototyping projects might include any topic generally consistent with the Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) of propulsion systems. That scope might extend to address aircraft platforms, systems, components, or materials and any integration therein.

AFLCMC ACQUISITION DIRECTORATE

The scope of AFLCMC ACI Consortium Initiative prototyping projects might include any topic generally consistent with the research, development, test and evaluation within prototyping projects of the AFLCMC mission sets. These mission sets include, but are not limited to: weapon system and commercial derivative aircraft platforms, battle management, simulators, human systems, clothing/uniforms, business enterprise systems, command, control, communications, intelligence and networks, armament, support equipment and vehicles, automatic, test systems, electronic warfare and avionics, information, surveillance, reconnaissance and special operations, aircraft integration, and aircraft.

The award provides the Directorate the opportunity to streamline the acquisition process by rapidly awarding projects under the OTA to members of the SOSSEC Consortium, which is managed by its Consortium Administrative Organization (CAO) or Consortium Manager, SOSSEC, Inc.

SOSSEC, Inc. is responsible for effectively managing the consortium whose members will execute prototyping projects that address military propulsion needs. The period of performance for the award is 5 years.

DRIVING INNOVATIVE AND TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) awarded a new Other Transaction Authority (OTA) prototype agreement to SOSSEC, Inc., a Massachusetts-based company with offices in Atkinson, NH, Stroudsburg, PA and Johnstown, PA.

The sole purpose of SOSSEC, Inc. is to represent the SOSSEC Consortium for contracting purposes and to negotiate, enter into, and administer contracts for and with the Consortium members.  SOSSEC will be working with NGA’s Office of Ventures and Innovation using the OTA as one means to drive innovative and transformational change into the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) and Allied System for Geospatial-Intelligence (ASG) environments.  The agreement has a $30M ceiling for multiple prototype project awards and represents SOSSEC’s sixth such agreement since 2007.

Prototypes funded through this OTA shall be directly relevant to enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel and the supporting platforms, systems, components, or materials to be acquired or developed by the Department of Defense (DoD), or to improve the platforms, systems, components, or materials in use by the armed forces.

In support of national security, the program shall serve as a vehicle for attracting new technologies and accelerating the research and development (R&D) cycle of basic and advanced prototypes that support resolution of NSG/ASG hard intelligence problems.  Specifically, this program shall allow NGA and the SOSSEC Consortium to execute and coordinate efforts to plan, research, develop and utilize prototype efforts designed to allow NGA to acquire and/or use those technologies and business processes in the agency for evaluation and demonstration.  The goal is to determine the value of each prototype application in solving hard intelligence problems.

The NGA PM/COR for this activity is Mr. Enrique Ramos, Enrique.ramos@nga.mil. The SOSSEC PM is Mr. Gene DelCoco, edelcoco@sossecinc.com.

We have developed a customized process for navigating the steps toward receiving an Project Award under this OT, and it is specific to the NGA OVI OT.  The Project Proposal 10-Step Process is available here: SOSSEC - Project Proposal 10-Step Process (NGA OVI) [link to come]
