ATSP - Scope

The scope of allowable work on ATSP2 is very broad, but must focus on microelec­tronics or soft­ware and applications that may include: preliminary analysis and trade studies, proto­type development and demon­strations, full-scale development, integration and test, qualifi­cation, and limited production. Tasks not allowed include “brick and mortar”, procure­ment of off-the-shelf items, and high-volume production contracts.

ATSP2 provides rapid, streamlined contracting for:

  • Advanced microelectronics technology insertions and applications –
    • Hardware studies, analysis, design, simulation, fabrication, packaging, prototyping, integra­tion, and testing
    • Software studies, analysis, and architecture development; software design, coding, simulation, prototyping, integration, and testing
  • Form-fit-function replacements (from components to systems) –
    • Studies, analysis, design, simulation, fabrication, packaging, prototyping, integra­tion, and testing
    • Discrete electronics, integrated circuit components, multi-chip modules, printed circuit boards, electronic assemblies, subsystems and complete systems
  • Limited production –
    • When considered advantageous to the Government
    • Applies only to products developed on ATSP2
