Automating the Rapid Generation of 3D Geospatial Data (RAPID 3D)

January 24, 2019

On September 20th, 2019, in accordance with 10 U.S. Code § 2371b, the Army Contracting Command – Orlando awarded an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) via the Training and Readiness Accelerator (TReX) for Automating the Rapid Generation of 3D Geospatial Data (RAPID 3D) prototype project. A Request for Solutions for these efforts was issued through TReX on June 3, 2019, which resulted in the submittal of 10 total responses. As a result of a multi-stage competition, the prototype project was awarded to CAE USA Mission Solutions, Inc. located in Tampa, FL. The total value of this prototype project, if all phases and options are exercised, is $994,350.01.

United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) desires a prototype with the capability to rapidly generate 3D data from multiple imagery sources. The goal of this effort is to develop software that uses new and/or enhanced methods for processing sensor data in order to both expedite processing time and take advantage of non-traditional sensor data as a source for model development.

USSOCOM desires advanced technology (Technical Readiness Level (TRL) 5-6) for further development and application to Special Operations Forces (SOF) unique specifications. Technologies will be combined with other emerging technologies to prototype proofs of concept and assessed as integrated, low TRL solutions over the next 6-18 months. Emerging capabilities may be used for experimentation and extended “real world” test and evaluation to achieve TRL 8.

This project is directly relevant to enhancing the mission effectiveness of SOF personnel and will enhance several areas that are currently key technology gaps. These include 3D data processing automation, source agnostic 3D content generation, rapid 3D data generation, and standards-based interoperability for use by SOF operators in denied, degraded, intermittent and low bandwidth environments at the tactical edge.

Delivered solutions will be part of the Rapid 3D prototype project composed of three objectives: Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), Geo-registration, and Scale. Vendors may bid on one or more solutions. GPU, Geo-registration, and Scale are each considered a solution. Deliverables (hardware, software, reports, etc.) will be determined during final Statement of Work (SOW) collaborations with selected offerors, prior to award.
