The MSI receiver card is to meet the needs of low size, weight and power (SWaP) ground-embedded users. The ASIC within, however, must be built to meet the needs of not only this form factor but all platforms the contractors may use it in. The ability to meet aviation and precision-guided munition (PGM) needs through the ASIC is of special interest. In support of the MGUE Inc 2 acquisition strategy development, a MSI Requests For Information (RFI) was released in June 2017. Beyond confirming market interest and capabilities, the MSI RFI requested feedback from industry to address warfighter needs of a Size, Weight and Power (SWaP)-reduced form factor consistent with the MGUE Inc 2 CDD. The RFI results were positive and multiple vendors confirmed industrys ability to develop an MSI receiver to meet the draft MSI requirements. An initial Industry Day was held on 13 September 2018 to determine market interest in a competitive acquisition for the development of the MSI receiver with Next Gen ASIC. The industry day indicated there are several vendors interested in development of the MSI receiver with Next Gen ASIC. An Acquisition Strategy Panel (ASP) was held with Dr. Roper on 13 November 2018, where the acquisition strategy was approved and an Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM) signed determining MGUE Inc 2 a middle tier acquisition rapid prototype per the 2016 NDAA Section 804. The ADM also delegates MSI Source Selection Authority to the Air Force Program Executive Officer for Space Development. Purpose The purpose of this announcement is to invite all potential MGUE Inc 2 vendors to participate in the Industry Day #2 event to be held on 5 February 2019 at Engility in El Segundo, CA.
