Phase 2 Technical Demonstration Events at Yuma Providing Ground, Arizona, were completed December 2020. This involved live flight demonstrations and performance of realistic scenarios that were observed by a panel of Government personnel. Based on the results of Phase 2, the Government has decided to proceed with prototyping and development on the solution demonstrated by Martin UAV. The Government has therefore completed its multi-phased merit-based selection process and now plans to award an Other Transaction (OT) prototype project to Martin UAV under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2371b, as contemplated by the initial announcement of 24 June 2020.
As previously articulated to all participants, no debriefs will be provided with regard to the Government's selection decision. NAWCAD extends its appreciation to all respondents for their interest and participation in this selection process.
