Air Force Market Study Aims to Examine Potential Data Center Upgrades

DataCenterThe U.S. Air Force‘s Technical Applications Center is conducting market research into services for modernizing the U.S. National Data Center program under a potential seven-year, $25.5 million contract.

A selected contractor would be responsible for collaborating with an NDC technical group to unify hardware, software and calibration data with the NDC system, the Air Force ISR Agency said in a request for information dated Aug. 14.

AFTAC intends to update the NDC system through scientific and engineering studies, hardware upgrade, operational systems maintenance and software deliveries integration from separate contracts.

The NDC works to receive, store and report events to fulfill nuclear treaty monitoring requirements.

The project also aims to combine third-party initiatives from other agencies such as the Energy Department and Air Force labs and to sustain an infrastructure of both software and hardware.
