    Request for supply arrangement (RFSA) for the C4ISR domain
    
    Description
    The Science and Technology requirements for the C4ISR domain intersect with the work of several projects involving several DRDC scientific sections in Canada. For the Defence Research and Development Canada - Valcartier Research Center (DRDC), these sections include Spectral and Geospatial Exploitation, Electro-Optical Warfare, Tactical Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Command, Control and Intelligence (C2I), Mission Critical Cyber Security and Defence experimentation Valcartier. 
    
    DRDC's C2I Section will work on projects that will act as an integrating S&T cluster to study systems and technologies for command, control and intelligence for all military environments. These systems and technologies will require the integration of different systems operating on different platforms. Systems integration can also be achieved through automation, development of algorithms and technical solutions to facilitate the exchange and exploitation of tactical data from various information systems and sensors. The C2I Section is used for capacity development projects to improve the integration and fusion of information. Research is also continuing on the themes of information and knowledge management, and geo-spatiotemporal representations of information that facilitate analysis and decision-making.
    
    A Notice will be posted once a year on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS) to allow new Suppliers to become qualified. Existing qualified Suppliers, who have been issued a supply arrangement, will not be required to submit a new arrangement. Suppliers who wants to qualify in areas they were not qualified for previously will need to submit a new arrangement.
