NASA/JSC has a requirement for Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) Cockpit Prototyping Phase 3 research and development (R&D). The objective of the Phase 3 work is to provide human machine interface R&D for defining CEV cockpit layout requirements, displays, and controls rapid prototyping using iterative interaction. The Government intends to award a follow-on contract to the CEV Cockpit Prototyping Phase 1 and Phase 2 Contracts. This acquisition will be a Firm Fixed Price, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract. The period of performance is planned for May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2012, with two 1-year options for performance through April 30, 2014.

The CEV Cockpit Prototyping Phase 3 R&D tasks are an extension of work completed during Phases 1 and 2. Interested parties shall be able to further develop the tools and concepts created during previous phases seamlessly utilizing ideas and lessons learned from three previous NASA R&D projects-- X38/CRV Human Machine Interface R&D, the Advanced Cockpit Evaluation System, and the Sensor Fusion Project.

NASA/JSC intends to purchase the items from Aerospace Applications North America (AANA), Houston, TX. AANA is the CEV Cockpit Prototyping Phase 1 and Phase 2 contractor and has contracted with NASA on the three aforementioned R&D projects.

The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. See Note 26.
