AFLCMC/HNAK intends to award a sole source contract to Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) to procure, integrate and test one (1) Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN) Payload into one Global Hawk Block 30i V1 platform. This effort includes the installation of the BACN A-Kit (antennas, radomes, cabling, provisions, and installation peripherals) and B-Kit (the removable BACN payload components). Continued 24/7 operation of the BACN network in theater is driving the need for an additional EQ-4B. There is a separate contract action to maintain and operate these payloads in the current theater of operations supporting BACN missions. The Government does not have manufacturing drawings and does not currently have all the Data Rights for the BACN payload.
