Thunderstorm 19-4 Sense-Through-the-Wall Technology Demonstration Announcement

Raleigh, NC

As a result of Thunderstorm 18-3 and the continued government interest in Sense-Through-the-Wall (STTW) technologies, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) has recently announced a follow-on event: “Thunderstorm Technology Limited Demonstration and Experimentation 19-4: Sense-Through-the-Wall”.  This event is being planned for late summer/early autumn 2019 in the eastern U.S and was recently posted on FedBizOpps.  The announcement is attached for your reference.

I am reaching out to any of you who may have a solution or partial solution.    If so, take a look at the RFI and respond.  The Thunderstorm Demo Team is tentatively planning to conduct a vendor/technology down selection and demonstration planning meeting the week of 18 March, so be aware that the application deadline is 5:00 PM EDT on 15 March 2019.

Additional Info:


The purpose of this request for information (RFI) is to solicit technologies from private industry, government research and development (R&D) organizations, and academia for inclusion in a future capability demonstration and experimentation event is focused on sense-through-the-wall (STTW) technologies. This effort is sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Deputy, Prototyping and Concept Experimentation (P&CE), Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO). The intent is to accelerate the delivery of innovative capabilities to the warfighter by demonstrating and experimenting with the capability in an operationally relevant environment. The results of this effort will be used to inform decision makers of emerging and available technology solutions that enhance or improve operational capabilities.


Interested parties are welcome to submit their applications to participate in the demonstration and experimentation event. Technology demonstrations are planned to take place at the unclassified level; as such, proposals must be submitted at the unclassified level. For technologies that have features or applications at higher classification levels, please respond with an unclassified proposal. If this technology is chosen for the Thunderstorm 19-4 demonstration/experimentation, appropriate arrangements can then be made for subsequent discussions at the appropriate level. This RFI is for Thunderstorm 19-4, with demonstrations and experiments planned for late summer or autumn 2019 in the eastern United States.
