Accreditation of Intertek USA, Inc. (Baytown, TX), as a Commercial Laboratory, 56981-56982 [2017-25869]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 230 / Friday, December 1, 2017 / Notices integration and other data on cellular direction finding technologies. After an initial installation and familiarization period, the Coast Guard plans to evaluate a designated platform outfitted with the communications technology for a period of one week. We anticipate the Coast Guard’s contributions under the proposed CRADA will include the following: (1) Develop the Demonstration Pilot Assessment Plan to meet the objectives of the CRADA with a diverse set of reallife mission scenarios. (2) Provide the pilot demonstration support in and around Charleston, SC. (3) Coordinate Pilot demonstration from onboard a USCG cutter. (4) Collaborate with non-Federal partners to prepare demonstration documentation including equipment assessments, final report(s), and briefings. We anticipate that the non-Federal participant’s contributions under the proposed CRADA will include the following: (1) Assist the R&D Center in the development and drafting of all CRADA documents, including the pilot demonstration assessment plan, equipment assessments, final report(s), and briefings. (2) Provide and maintain the direction finding equipment to ensure the system is usable. (3) Secure, with R&D Center assistance, Special Temporary Authority (STA) to employ the equipment within the desired frequency bands. (4) Provide technical support, training and maintenance throughout the period of performance to ensure maximum availability and utility of the networks. The Coast Guard reserves the right to select for CRADA participants all, some, or no proposals submitted for this CRADA. The Coast Guard will provide no funding for reimbursement of proposal development costs. Proposals and any other material submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are expected to be unclassified and have no more than five single-sided pages (excluding cover page, DD 1494, JF–12, etc.). The Coast Guard will select proposals at its sole discretion on the basis of: (1) How well they communicate an understanding of, and ability to meet, the proposed CRADA’s goal; and CBPL No. ASTM 27–48 ................................................. D 4052 (2) How well they address the following criteria: (a) Technical capability to support the non-Federal party contributions described; and (b) Resources available for supporting the non-Federal party contributions described. Currently, the Coast Guard is considering TriaSys Technologies Corp for participation in this CRADA. This consideration is based on the fact that TriaSys Systems has demonstrated its technical ability as the developer, manufacturer, and integrator of cellular direction finding equipment. However, we do not wish to exclude other viable participants from this or future similar CRADAs. The USCG’s intent to enter in a potential CRADA with TriaSys Corp is based on market research and visits to vendors with advertised expertise in this unique application of technology in the maritime environment for Search and Rescue. The research includes employment of their antennas, equipment and graphical user interface (GUI) to establish direction and geolocation of cellular phones in an openocean environment. Specifically, the equipment will provide both a Line of Bearing (LOB) and a Global Positioning System (GPS) location to a cellular phone in a search and rescue scenario. The equipment will be setup in locations with use in the open ocean environment. A Pilot Demonstration schedule has been proposed in which TriaSys Systems will provide their equipment. The Coast Guard Research and Development Center (R&D Center) will prepare a Pilot Demonstration Assessment Plan and TriaSys Systems will operate the equipment for exploratory development over a one week period to collect information on suitability, reliability, maintenance requirements, and ease of use. This is a technology assessment effort. The goal for the Coast Guard of this CRADA is to better understand the advantages, disadvantages, required technology enhancements, performance, costs, and other issues associated with cellular direction finding technologies. Special consideration will be given to small business firms/consortia, and preference will be given to business units located in the U.S. This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
