Panama City, Florida, Nov. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Department of the Navy posted a solicitation for information from manufacturers of Maritime SATCOM (Mobile Satellite Communication). The potential procurement will be for at least eight rugged, weather resistant radio systems, with the possibility of up to twenty-four.

To gage sources for the procurement, the Naval Station Weapons Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) will be holding an Industry Day on January 9, 2018 at the La Quinta Inn on Coastal Palms Blvd in Panama City Beach, Florida. Eligible federal contractors are asked to provide a static display of their proposed system. Among other technical specifications, acceptable SATCOM systems should demonstrate their ability operate under salt fog conditions, withstand dust penetration, be protected from snow and resist fungal growth.

Interested vendors should contact Tommy Bushman by email at with a capability checklist and market research information, both of which can be found on the Federal Business Opportunity’s webpage. No contract will be awarded at this time from responses to this solicitation as this just the information gathering stage of the possible procurement.

Companies that respond to and attend this Naval Industry Day must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) Database.
