Statement of Work (SOW)
Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) – Systems Integration Lab (SIL) consulting,
installation, configuration, and operation training
06/11/2021

Introduction and Overview

This Statement of Work (SOW) will be to establish a contract to procure consulting, installation,
configuration, and operation services in a training format as well as a Torch software license for an Integrated
Fixed Towers (IFT) Systems Integration Lab (SIL) at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (MMAC).

Background

The IFT program is an extension of the Custom and Border Protections’ (CBP) surveillance programs.
The program enhances detection and interdiction capabilities with emphasis on securing the national
border. The objective is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using cameras and radars, with associated
equipment and technologies, to monitor threats to the national border by deploying sensors to selected
sites and fully integrating the sensors into a Command and Control (C2) system. The IFT program
provides consistent surveillance of surface traffic for the detection of both vehicle and human traffic
moving across the national border. The surveillance supports situational awareness, tactical and strategic
decision making in support of border security needs.

Operational level maintenance and NOC/SOC level support, which includes systems integration support,
are currently handled by a CBP contractor. However, these activities, otherwise known as CLS activities,
are scheduled to transition to the Federal Aviation Administration Logistics Center (FAALC) on August
15, 2021 for the Nogales AoR and October 24, 2021 for all other IFT AoRs. In order to continue systems
integration support for the IFT program, FAALC must stand up its own IFT SIL.

Scope of Work

The contractor shall provide consulting, installation, configuration, and operation services in a training
format as well as a Torch software license for an Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) Systems Integration Lab
(SIL) at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (MMAC). This procurement shall include support for
associated IFT hardware and software including but not limited to, Torch, Cambium Networks, System
Center and Server software, as well as any other associated software, equipment, and technologies for the
IFT program. The training shall also include installation, configuration, and operation services in a training
format for the Trailer Mounted Surveillance Tower (TMST), the IFT Programs’ version of a relocatable
surveillance tower. The training must be provided and conducted by an instructor(s) experienced in each
of the individual components as they function in the overall design of the IFT system.
