a contract for
a feasibility study
Hamilton Sundstrand, Rockford, IL,
This vendor will perform a feasibility study of the cost-effectiveness of developing a high power test laboratory in Rockford. Sunstrand has developed similiar facilities for both the 787 and Embracier programs in the Rockfoed area. This study is an extension of that work to higher power levels and for land vehicles such as the Future Combat System. The performer of this work must be in the Rockford area, as local knowledge is key to success as well as the vendor being a major Department of Defense contractor.
