Eglin reaches out to industry

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Air Force simulation experts are reaching out to industry to find companies able to develop simulations to help the Air Force evaluate concepts for new weapons. The Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate at Eglin Air Force Base issued a sources-sought notice Tuesday for the Technology Research for Integrated Guidance Simulation (TRIGS) program. The Air Force is asking for research ideas and capabilities in hardware-in-the-loop simulation development, weapon engagement research, hardware-in-the-loop simulator technology development, and virtual environment phenomenology modeling. The Air Force expects to negotiate one five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity research contract for the TRIGS weapons simulation program worth about $45 million.
