1. General terms and conditions
1.1 Estonian Centre for Defence Investment (hereinafter Contracting Authority) is announcing a competitive procedure with negotiation in the field of defence and security for Anti-Tank Guided Weapon System and LifeCycle Support.
1.2 The aim of the procurement is to conclude a framework agreement with 1 Tenderer for a term of up to 84 months. The evaluation criterion is the lowest price.
To the 08.10.2018 letter no 2-6/18/3022-1
Requirement description (minimum requirement)
Anti-Tank Guided Weapon System (ATGWS) is meant for Infantry Brigade subunits to be used in Area of Operation, day- and nighttime to engage armored threats at least 4000 meters in range. Weapon system must be capable to encounter modern Main Battle Tank as well as other heavily armored threats. ATGWS must be capable to engage threats that are concealed behind obstacles – ATGWS must thus have a Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) capability.
ATGWS set shall consist of:
Command Launch Unit (CLU), with tripod and integrated thermal sight (IR), integrated video feed recording, integrated laser range finder, etc
Rechargeable CLU battery (to be used during training);
Backpack for CLU, batteries and a tripod;
Backpack, which is suitable for carrying 2 or 1 missile. Basically the backpack should be a frame, where it is possible to attach 2 or 1 missile. By carrying 2 missiles they should be located side by side, by carrying 1 missile it should be placed in the middle.
External digital video recording device/Commander recording unit (CRU/MDVR). The device shall have a carrying pouch for it in any of the backpacks described in ATGWS set.
Cabling and necessary accessories for using exterior power (from the vehicle, 24 V);
Transportation and storage box for CLU. The box has to protect the CLU during transportation or storage;
User Manual shall be at least in English and/or in Estonian;
Rechargeable CLU battery charger (not in every set). The Tenderer shall submit information about the rechargeable CLU battery charger. Information should include at least technical parameters and capacity. The charger shall be capable to charge 1-3 batteries at the same time;
Missile - The ammunition is part of the set, but its quantity and use are situation and command-based. This clause is informative for the Tenderers;
https://riigihanked.riik.ee/register/Ha ... ng.sdirectATGWS usage
ATGWS shall be used by a crew of 3 persons: team leader, gunner and supplier
The firing unit shall be manipulatable by 1 soldier (the gunner). He shall be able to execute the following actions on his own: observation of the combat space and target acquisition; firing the weapon and reloading the weapon
A normal operating of the system shall be on stand and/or on tripod. The weapon system can be easily fired while held on the shoulder
The system shall permit missile firing on at least two principles:
The weapon system shall dispose of both a direct (low) attack mode and top (high) attack mode. It shall be possible for the gunner to choose between these two modes before launching the Missile
- „Fire and Forget” – the missile is locked on to the target and after missile launch, the team may leave the firing position
- „Fire - Observe - Update“ – A target visible to the missile can be traced through CLU, the missile flight path could be corrected during the flight;
Shall be possible to switch targets during the flight of the missile;
Shall be possible to engage targets in range but out of sight (Beyond-Line-Of-Sight capability - BLOS);
ATGWS shall be usable in all weather conditions, both in daytime and in limited visibility conditions (nighttime, humid weather, rain, haze, snow etc.);
The weapon system shall have the possibility to be integrated on a vehicle with an overhead launching arm/Vehicle fitting. The ammunition of the dismounted and the integrated system shall be the same and shall be interchangeable
Shall be possible to fire the weapon system safely from an enclosed space. This requirement is more specified in clause TT016.
Both the CLU and the missile must not be affected by different electronics and laser systems (including active protection IR systems);
The missile shall be capable of defeating modern Main Battle Tanks.
TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ATGWS, AMMUNITION AND TRAINING EQUIPMENT
The minimal firing range of the weapon system shall not exceed 200 m;
The effective firing range of the weapon system shall be as high as possible but at least 4000 m;
It shall be possible to engage moving targets with a speed of at least 30 km/h within the required range (4000 m);
The ATGWS shall enable the detection, identification and engagement of the target at maximum shooting distance;
The hit probability (P-Hit) shall be at least 90% (P-Hit > 90%) within the required range against both stationary and moving targets. P-Hit is defined as the probability of hitting a target starting from the fire command (pulling the trigger), and includes therefore the reliability of the whole weapon system (missile activation, ejection, propulsion, tracking etc.);
ATWGS CLU and training equipment language is Estonian and/or English;
Weight of the ATGWS with the necessary accessories (tripod, battery, etc.) in total is no more than 16 kg;
The CLU shall be usable as an observation device (even without a missile);
The CLU shall have an integrated digital compass and a laser range finder;
It shall be possible to connect an external video screen onto the weapon system (e.g. for live fire exercise support, command etc.). Video feed shall be the same as seen by the gunner operating the CLU. Video feed shall be recordable;
The ATGWS must maintain a reliability in temperature range of -35 Cº to + 55 Cº
It shall be possible to fire the weapon system safely from an enclosure with following dimensions: room: 4 m wide x 5 m deep x 2,5 m high and window & door openings: 2,5 m².
It shall be possible to observe the battlefield and to fire the weapon system when the gunner is wearing glasses;
The tripod shall enable the gunner to maintain a horizontal observation coverage of 360 degrees, and a vertical observation coverage between plus and minus 20 degrees for all supported firing positions;
The height of each leg of the tripod shall be separately adjustable;
It shall be possible to lock the weapon system in a specific direction;
The ATGWS CLU shall have a built-in self-test system (BIT);
The supplied equipment shall be new. Production year not before 2018;
The interface between firing unit and ammunition shall be able to withstand minimum 1000 couplings;
The shelf life of the ammunition shall be at least 10 years (without lifetime extension program);
The total lifetime of the ammunition (including lifetime extension) should be as high as possible, but not less than 20 years;
Weight of the missile (in the container) - not more than 16 kg;
Anti-armor version of the missile shall have a tandem charge warhead;
Anti - armor capacity: Within the required range (4000m), it shall be possible to penetrate at least 700 mm Rolled Homogeneous Armor (RHA), including Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA);
A missile that is locked and fired shall follow target changes (i.e. when the target speed or location changes, then the locked missile follows);
The ammunition must maintain a reliability in temperature range of -35 C° to + 55 C°;
Ammunition range or development program shall also include multi-purpose ammunition (Anti-Structure / Anti-Personnel);
Supplied ammuniton shall be new. Production time before delivery shall not exceed 9 months;
Mindestens 4 km Reichweite - d.h. aus US-Produktion (Die Lockheed Martin/Raytheon Javelin ist zu leistungsschwach.) kommt lediglich die Raytheon TOW in Frage. Aus Israel die Rafael Defense Systems Spike LR und aus Frankreich die MBDA MMP. Aus der Türkei allenfalls noch die Roketsan OMTAS.
Von diesen Waffen erfüllen die Einschränkung für das Maximalgewicht der Munition (inkl. Startbehälter) von 18 kg alle, außer die OMTAS (35 kg) und die TOW (TOW 2A: 21,6 kg; TOW 2B: 22,58 kg/29,48 kg inkl. Startbehälter). Also wird es höchstwahrscheinlich auf ein Rennen zwischen MMP und Spike LR hinauslaufen.
