The intent of this prototype project is to mature and validate the Technical Data Package (TDP) and installation instructions for an ERCA Self-Propelled Howitzer System. The contractor will build one (1) ERCA prototype vehicle in order to validate the Technical Data Package (TDP). The validation will provide useful feedback on the documents readiness for production. This is not a design effort, although the contractor will be expected to offer potential solutions or lessons learned as difficulties are encountered during the build process. The anticipated period of performance is 18 months.

The Government anticipates pursuing a Follow-on Production effort. This effort may be under the authority of 10.U.S.C. 2371b(f), which states that, upon a determination that the competitively awarded prototype project has been successfully completed, the prototype project may result in the award of a follow-on production contract or transaction without the use of competitive procedures. The anticipated Follow-on Production is estimated at $117M for up to 20 ERCA vehicle systems per year, over five-years.
