RFS Amendment 2_FMT_AMPV_PTT_10Apr2020

Thank you for your continued interest in the AMPV PTT and JLTV HOTs prototype efforts.

The Government has revised the acquisition strategy for the AMPV PTT effort to support maximum participation for the JLTV prototype effort. The Government has issued an amendment for the AMPV PTT prototype effort, which identifies a solution extension date of 14 May 2020. The Government believes this amendment will allow adequate time for industry partners to prepare their solutions for the JLTV HOTs effort. The AMPV PTT amendments support over 90 days of requirements review and preparation of a solution.

The JLTV effort is a high priority effort and will remain on the current acquisition schedule. The JLTV DRAFT RFS was released on 30 March 2020 and the final on 03 April 2020, which identifies a solution submission date of 04 May 2020 and award by the end of FY 20 Q3. Customarily, the Government has provided 30-45 days for review and submission of prototype solutions for TReX OTA efforts. It should also be noted that both platforms share common GFI artifacts.

Thank you for your continued interest in the TReX OTA portfolio of projects.

Scope/High Level Overview:

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.

The purpose of this OT is to extend the product line to include AMPV PTTs in accordance with the Family of Maintenance Trainers – Common Core (FMT-CC) architecture and baseline.   PTTs are physical mockups or modified tactical components of a vehicle subsystem.  They emulate the operational and functional capabilities of the subsystem to allow training on maintenance and troubleshooting tasks.  There are no AMPV PTTs or maintenance trainers.  Performing maintenance and troubleshooting procedures on operational vehicles is undesirable due to damage over-time, reduced fleet availability, and increased cost.  The AMPV PTT prototype will enhance the effectiveness of maintenance by providing real-time feedback as well as track and guide student maintenance and troubleshooting steps.  The AMPV PTT will reduce training sustainment costs through simulating vehicle components and integrating the FMT-CC baseline.  The lack of a vehicle maintenance trainer justifies the need to develop an AMPV PTT utilizing the FMT-CC architecture in order to provide the aforementioned capabilities and overcome today’s vehicle maintenance and troubleshooting training challenges for the AMPV.

The PTTs share some common functionalities with the Diagnostic and Troubleshooting Trainers (DTTs) to include the Instructor/Operator Station (I/OS), the Training Management System (TMS), and limited specific vehicle behavioral functionalities.  Because of these common functionalities, there are distinct benefits that can be realized by incorporating the PTTs into the FMT PL.  The benefits include the reduction of initial developmental costs and total life cycle support costs through reuse of the PL Architecture and Common Core baselines.  In addition, including the PTTs in the PL will enhance the Army’s ability to make improvements to training capabilities, integrate new technologies, execute technical refreshes, and maintain concurrency between FMT products and vehicle platforms.

The goal of this effort is to analyze the training requirements provided in the Technical Supplements (TS) and to develop a prototype PTT solution that is compliant with the FMT PL architecture and CC baseline.

The FMT AMPV PTT will provide the 91M, 913A, and 915A Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) skill level development for operation, fault diagnosis, troubleshooting, adjustments, component removal/replacement, and other maintenance and repair tasks for the vehicle powerpack subsystem.  This effort is limited to developing one PTT prototype for the AMPV power train system.  Production AMPV PTTs and production PTTs for other vehicle platforms will be based on the architecture and design of the prototype developed under this OT and may be procured as follow-on efforts to this OT.

Technical Description of the Program:

The FMT PL AMPV PTTs’ prototype approach includes four technical objectives as well as potential follow-on activities.

Technical Objective 1 includes the analysis, development, and validation of a generic PTT architecture and design approach that is consistent and compatible with the FMT PL Common Core Architecture.

Technical Objective 2 includes the development of the troubleshooting paths from the Electronic Technical Manuals (ETM) identified in the AMPV Technical Supplement and the development of an AMPV PTT System Specification with the corresponding Requirements Traceability and Verification Matrix (RTVM).

Technical Objective 3 and 4 include the development and demonstration of a AMPV PTT prototype based on the validated generic PTT architecture and the AMPV PTT System Specifications.  All Technical Objectives will incorporate the FMT PL Common Core I/OS software and interoperate with the FMT PL Common Core TMS.  The PTT prototype will be fielded at Fort Benning, GA.

Government Provided Data

The Government will provide existing documentation, source code, and other system artifacts as necessary to complete the prototype development effort.  The Government will provide access to fielded systems and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) on a non-interference basis to support the design, development, and testing efforts.  In addition, the Government will provide Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) after award.

  • Sustainment and Follow-On Activities:

It is anticipated that potential follow-on prototype and/or production contracts will be awarded which use the FMT PL PTT architecture and software developed under this prototyping effort to develop additional maintenance training PTTs of a similar PTT type. Pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2371b(f), if a prototype pilot is successful, production OTs are authorized and offer a streamlined method for transitioning into follow-on production without competition.   Potential follow-on contracts may be either sole source, based on successful completion of the prototype project within the scope of this document, or competed at the discretion of the Government.  Follow-on activities could include system and software updates to address obsolescence, concurrency, evolving training requirements, and technology insertion.

Anticipated follow-on activities include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. Production of additional AMPV PTTs based on the prototype.
  2. Develop prototype and production PTTs for other platform powerpack subsystems.

Follow-On Products:  Follow-on products will include software design description, source code, interface capability and design documents (ICD/IDD), production level technical data package, system specifications, and logistic support documentation.

Estimated Timeline: FY20-FY25

Estimated Budget: $5,358,000
