2.0 SCOPE:

2.1 The scope of this effort includes all of the technical areas defined in this SOS, and Annex 1, as well as related technologies of the IFE Division. This effort consists of system engineering and technical support for intelligence, functional, operational and process analysis and engineering. Areas include intelligence, architecture development and implementation, intelligence information and communications technology analysis, Command and Control Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (C4ISR) for the war fighters, design, development, integration, integration management, system maintenance and training support. This work includes studies and analysis, systems support, analytical support, system design, engineering, engineering management, system tradeoff analysis, maintenance and data base support. This work includes software development, demonstrations, coding, specification development, user familiarization, and documentation. Evolve, update, develop and integrate hardware/software, system simulations, web design, network development for classified and unclassified systems located worldwide, with emphasis on United States Forces Korea (USFK).


3.1 The IFEB Branch develops a multitude of techniques, applications, system engineering, site support, support to Department of Defense (DOD), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), United States Forces Korea (USFK), Eighth United States Army (EUSA) 2nd Division, United States Army, Korea, Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC), and support to Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome Research Site projects.

3.1.1 The bulk of the work performed under previous orders during the past several years has been operational support to the Commands in Korea, such as USFK/EUSA and 2nd Division. A smaller portion of the work is operational support being accomplished at DIA and JFIC. The operational Korean work continues to be accomplished at the Korean user sites, with minimal work being accomplished at U.S. facilities. Work for the DIA, JFIC and AFRL Rome Research Site will be accomplished at U.S. sites. The work anticipated under the contract is primarily operational, with some software Research and Development anticipated.
