The AFLCMC/HBAG is seeking information on Technology Development Candidates for a Portable Tactical Air Navigation System (TACAN) that could be rapidly deployed, as described in paragraphs 6 (Mobility Requirements) and 7 (Deployability Requirements), to austere locations that may have limited airfield infrastructures or support systems.
There is an unmet need for a robust man portable TACAN system. The Government is interested in system(s) that are small, light and highly mobile in support of various airfield operational scenarios. The Government is seeking detailed information on both existing systems as well as technology development candidates that may offer a wide array of aircraft navigational options. Trade space considerations and suggested enhancements to existing systems that could be included as part of a prototype development program should be described in the responses. Innovative solutions that meet or exceed the requirements are encouraged.Click for more info
