On 31 January 2022 the BroadGNSS team launched a Request for Tenders to develop and test innovative solutions for the following challenge: seamless outdoor-indoor location, differentiation of persons involved, audio and video from drones, map on the fly, information related to gunshots, synchronisation of all recorded data and monitoring of quality and availability of the communication link. The official Contract notice can be found on this link.
When the Request for Tenders is closed on 2nd May 2022, the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process will be executed in three phases, Solution Design, Solution Prototype and Pilot. Pre-commercial procurement challenges industry to develop innovative solutions for public sector needs and it provides a first customer reference that enables companies to create a competitive advantage on the market.
The first phase of the pre-commercial procurement process is a feasibility study of the selected technologies and proposals. Then, a selection of the most promising concepts will be developed into well-defined prototypes and lab-tested in phase two. The third phase aims to verify and compare the first end-products in real-life situations.
R&D does not include quantity production or supply to establish the commercial viability or to recover R&D costs. It also excludes commercial development activities such as incremental adaptations, routine or periodic changes to existing products, services, production lines, processes or other operations in progress, even if such changes may constitute improvements.
