Functional Areas Supported

  • 3.1 Research and Development Support: This functional area consists of supporting the development and application of scientific and analytical disciplines to conduct fundamental research; scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge or understanding; concept formulation; assessment of system and subsystem requirements; development, analysis, and evaluation of concepts, technologies, systems, and subsystems; and development of operational concepts and tactics with the end goal being the application of results to developing new or improving existing warfighting capabilities. This effort may include manning, operations, and maintaining test support craft and experimental vessels in the open ocean or restricted waters to support tests.
  • 3.2 Engineering, System Engineering, and Process Engineering Support:
    This functional area consists of supporting the application of engineering disciplines to technically support development of new warfighting capabilities and systems, technically support development of significant alterations to existing systems, support integration of existing equipment or software into different applications or platforms to support the warfighter, and support evaluation of foreign or non-developmental weapons systems, equipments, and technologies to satisfy existing warfighting requirements. Support is required for system and process engineering disciplines that systematically consider the requirements, synthesize and evaluate alternative concepts, identify a recommended selection, and generate a design and system specification.
  • 3.3 Modeling, Simulation, Stimulation, and Analysis Support:
    This functional area consists of the application of a standardized, rigorous, structured methodology to create and validate a physical, mathematical, or otherwise logical representation of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process. The functional area involves the use of models, including emulators, prototypes, simulators, and stimulators, either statically or over time, to develop data as a basis for making managerial, technical, strategic, or tactical decisions.
  • 3.4 Prototyping, Pre-Production, Model-Making, and Fabrication Support:This functional area consists of the building, fabrication, testing, evaluating and operating reduced and full scale models, mock-ups, prototypes, pre-production units and research and development (R&D) test tools of electronic and electro-mechanical systems and system elements. Fabrication and the machining of replacement parts or equipments for fielded systems or platforms are included. Includes the use of traditional materials as well as new composite materials.
  • 3.5 System Design Documentation and Technical Data Support:This functional area involves the engineering effort required to prepare and assure that the detailed technical data documentation that is necessary to support system development reflects the latest design, configuration, integration, and installation concepts. Technical documentation may be in the form of paper, electronic (digital), or interactive computer systems.
  • 3.6 Software Engineering, Development, Programming, and Network Support: This functional area consists of applying the engineering and scientific disciplines to perform technical analysis of, technically support development of, or selection of hardware and computer software, or modification to existing hardware and software for systems, test facilities, or training facilities. This also consists of software engineering efforts and programming support required to technically support software implementation in systems, sub-systems, and components utilizing computers, electronics, and software. Planning, designing, coding, testing, integrating, supporting, and delivering algorithms, software (source code and executables), and computer programs are the inherent activities of this functional area. Generally, the software development processes used for software development under this contract shall be, as a minimum, assessed at Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Level 3 or equivalent, however the government may specify other (either lower or higher) standards in individual task orders issued under the contract.
  • 3.8 Human Factors, Performance, and Usability Engineering Support:
    This functional area consists of applying engineering, scientific, and analytical disciplines to ensure that design of interactive systems are safer, more secure, and easier to use thereby reducing accidents due to human error, increasing system integrity, and enabling more efficient process operations. This functional area also includes applying engineering, scientific, and analytical disciplines to ensure that the number, type, mix, knowledge, skills, abilities (KSAs), aptitudes, and physical characteristics of operators, maintainers, and support personnel have been defined and documented early in the system design phase.
  • 3.9 System Safety Engineering Support: This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to ensure that safety is considered in all aspects of design, development, operation, maintenance, and modification of systems and platforms.
  • 3.10 Configuration Management (CM) Support: This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to identify, document, and verify the functional, performance, and physical characteristics of systems, to control changes and non-conformance, and to track actual configurations of systems and platforms.
