The Program Executive Officer Land Systems (PEO LS), Program Manager, Ground Based Air Defense (PM GBAD) is looking for interested parties to address the force protection installation security capability gap for the detection, identification, tracking and defeat of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) operating within the vicinity of United States Marine Corps (USMC) specific mission sets associated with 10 U.S. Code Section 130i.

The purpose of the Request For Information (RFI) is to seek potential Counter-UAS solutions and feedback from the industry and gather information on candidate non-developmental systems currently available to support a potential acquisition under the Installation Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (I-CsUAS) program.

The USMC is seeking a modular, scalable, layered defense solution that must integrate multiple sensors and fuse the data into a single, secure operator view display. The Counter-UAS system must provide the entire kill chain against Group 1 and Group 2 sUAS threats. The defeat component of the kill chain will be via non-kinetic means.

The selected system will be deployed on 20 USMC installations within the Continental United States and 13 outside the Continental United States.
