NSTXL provides end-to-end acquisition support services that attract the best technologies and innovators to meet our client’s mission. In FY2020, our clients expect to award more than $1 billion of work to innovative companies through our OTA vehicles.



Due Soon!

Abrams Hands On Trainer (HOT)

The Army desires to extend the Family of Maintenance Trainers (FMT) Product Line (PL) to incorporate the legacy Abrams M1A2 SEP V3 Hands On Trainer (HOT) into the existing FMT PL portfolio by developing an OT prototype using the FMT-Common Core (CC).

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative cmi5 Player and Test Suite (PTS) Prototype Project

The cmi5 PTS prototype project seeks to acquire innovative cmi5 prototype capabilities—specifically, two closely related software prototypes for cmi5. First, this project will design, develop, test, and transition a free and open source cmi5 Player that serves as a reference implementation for Department of Defense (DoD) stakeholders.

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL)

U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command conceives and matures leap-ahead concepts and technologies to ensure military forces are combat-ready for future wars. To ensure Warfighter effectiveness, both offensive and defensive systems are tested and assessed in environments that replicate operational conditions.

Radio Frequency Spectrum Dominance

The DoD desires the capability to detect and counter emerging threats in the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS), providing warfighters with an enhanced understanding of their battlefield environment. The RFSD aims to collect and analyze RF signals to compare against a baseline environment, and automatically alert warfighters to anomalous signals.

Due Soon!

Rapid Assured Microelectronics Prototypes (RAMP)

The United States Navy and Air Force, in support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), is developing integrated circuit (IC) hardware and workflow prototypes that promote the use of assurance principles, feature protections, and correlation.

Due Soon!

Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) Part Task Trainer (PTT)

The Army desires to extend the FMT PL to incorporate an AMPV power train PTT into the existing Product Line (PL) portfolio. The FMT PL is being established to provide a common architectural framework and shared hardware, firmware, and software baselines and components that satisfy requirements common to maintenance training systems for multiple current and future vehicle platforms. This prototype project will be unclassified.

Integrated Environmental Control and Power (IECP)

The Army desires to prototype, test, demonstrate, and assess Integrated Environmental Control and Power (IECP) technologies and capabilities, both dual-use and defense specific, based on advanced vector drive controls for vapor compression technology and solid-gas absorption technology (open and closed cycle) that have been demonstrated to at least the proof-of-principle level.
