RFI for Manufacturers with Capacity or Reverse Engineering Capabilities

Thursday, September 7, 2023 (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (CDT)


BlueForge Alliance has issued an RFI for manufacturers with capacity or reverse engineering capabilities related to the Navy’s Submarine Programs. The specific needs are for manufacturers who can: 

  • Refurbish or produce low-volume parts on an as-needed or/and ongoing basis 
  • Provide reverse engineering support for obsolete components 
  • Manufacture and/or overhaul of targeted submarine components

This free webinar hosted by Purdue MEP offers assistance to manufacturers interested in pursuing the RFI process. Intended topics include tips for submitting an RFI with the Government, RFI requirements, and the potential future path of what an RFP may look like. Based on time, attendees will have time for Q&A with Purdue MEP’s defense industry program manager, Gene Jones. 

Intended audience: Vendors from the defense industrial base (DIB), submarine industrial base (SIB), and broader industry representing manufacturing, overhaul, and / or reverse engineering with particular emphasis on capabilities related to: 

  • Electrical hardware 
  • Electronic circuit boards, computers, and systems 
  • Mechanical component manufacturing / fabrication / repair (various processes) 
  • Mechanical assemblies 

Specifically, the following types of components are being sought: 

  • Locking Assembly 
  • Ball Valve Parts Kit 
  • Junction Box 
  • Transmitter, SONAR 
  • Shallow Depth Gage 
  • Current Regulator 
  • MAG BRG Power Supply 
  • Test Set Subassembly 
  • Angle Indicator 
  • Ball Valve 
  • Remote Readout Meter 
  • Computer Digital 
  • Circuit Card Assembly 
  • Various other component opportunities including pump overhaul/repair, valve seat/body overhaul, actuators, and motors
