CWMD THOR team is requesting industry's assistance in providing an updated itemized rough order of magnitude (ROM) cost estimate for the effort. The Thallium Bromide Human Portable Radiation Detection Systems Objective Resolution (THOR) team continues its efforts toward establishing the program aiming at the development of Radioisotope Identification Device (RIID) prototypes utilizing Thallium Bromide (TlBr)-based detectors. In preparation for that, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) intends to conduct a follow-on THOR Industry Day during which an updated status of the Thallium Bromide (TIBr) research will be presented including a TlBr detector demonstration. Tentatively, the Industry Day is planned to occur at the beginning of the 2023. The Industry Day is intended to also gather feedback on the proposed THOR strategy, which would allow for making any necessary adjustments prior to releasing a formal THOR prototype integration later that year. At this point it is anticipated that the THOR strategy as well as the THOR prototype technical requirements will be similar to those announced in the previous SAM.gov posting titled "THOR pre-solicitation" (Notice ID: RWRD-21-0026 accessible at: https://sam.gov/opp/898093f93d9a4604886735135ae1d5cd/view) and discussed during the October 2021 THOR Industry Day. In general, the effort would consist of development of 2-3 TlBr-based RIID prototypes per vendor to be delivered to CWMD for performance testing and operational assessment at the conclusion of about a 12-month effort. It is assumed that the THOR RIID integrators will supply any necessary technology needed for building the prototypes. This includes the TlBr detectors, which can be acquired through vendor-to-vendor agreements with the current participants of the CWMD TlBr R&D projects. It is also anticipated that the integrators will budget for conducting their own detection performance testing prior to submitting the RIID prototypes to CWMD. To support our program planning activities, the THOR team is requesting your assistance in determining the itemized rough order of magnitude (ROM) cost estimate for the effort. Any updated input regarding the cost and proposed contract structure would be extremely valuable.
