The F-16 Program Office is requesting information to support an anticipated sole source acquisition for the above items in accordance with DFARS PGI 206.302-1. The items are currently being produced by Glenair, and procured as enabling hardware with ties to proprietary software for a related program under the separate USAF/Northrop Grumman ASQ-236 pod contract, whose capability is currently being fielded within Air National Guard (ANG) and Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) F-16C/D units. With a sole source contract the USAF seeks to maintain hardware consistency and standardization across the F-16C fleet. The procured items must conform exactly to what is currently being fielded within ANG and AFRC units.
