The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (hereinafter referred to as DALO) plans to invite tenders for a Framework Agreement regarding acquisition of a 3D Inertial System (INS) for vehicles and is therefore looking for information on how to structure a possible future tender.

The INS shall improve the PNT coming from the GPS and the GPS shall stabilize the PNT data from the INS. In circumstances where the GPS signals are denied, the INS shall be able to give the vehicle PNT at a certain time.
As part of the preparation DALO would like to invite potential contractors to a discussion for the purpose of gathering information to be used for the preparation of future tender documents. DALO is conducting the discussion/market survey via Mercell Sourcing Services ( DALO does currently not plan to arrange subsequent technical dialogue meetings with participants. However, based on the information obtained from the RFI, DALO reserves the right to do so if further insight into the information obtained via the RFI questionnaire is deemed desirable. DALO furthermore reserves the right to ask participants to elaborate on the answers provided in the RFI.
