BCF is headquartered in Centreville, VA with offices in Arlington, VA and Huntsville AL. In February 2006, BCF acquired Program Management Associates, Inc. (PMA), which is currently one of the three BCF Divisions. The third is a commercial unit providing clinical trials in support of the medical industry. BCF’s core capabilities include Program Management; Financial Management; Budget Formulation and Execution; Performance Measurement/Earned Value Management; Acquisition Support; Facility Management Services; Configuration Management, and IT and Network Support.
SOW 3.2 Engineering, System Engineering and Process Engineering Support
Under N00178-04-D-4018-M806, BCF supports the NAVAIR Special Communications Requirements Division (SCRD) in the execution of Command, Control, Communication, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) systems projects. These research and development, evaluation, engineering, integration, testing, logistics, alteration, installation, training, and hardware support services support the SCRD’s mission of providing C-Embedded systems in a variety of fixed and mobile platforms, including shipboard, shore-based, and airborne. Representative programs BCF supports requiring C4I communications-electronic systems expertise are: Remote Radio Secure Voice System, Media/Broadcast Operations, Communications Network Operations, Visual Communications (VICOM) (Radio over IP Gateway), Command and Control Systems, Special Warfare & Special Operations Communications, Cable & Infrastructure Installation, Audio Visual Systems, Power Distribution and Redistribution and Combatant Craft Communications.
Under N41756-10-D-3353, BCF also has provided engineering services to provide mission analysis and objective definition to the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office – Technical Support Working Group (TSWG). The objectives of this effort was to review engineering processes relating to design, development, testing, and delivery of a rapidly and easily deployable/recoverable self-contained video surveillance system. BCF developed conceptual studies in concert with the Government to analyze and define requirements for TSWG’s system. The results of these assessments resulted in preliminary planning with presentation of multiple technical approaches for TSWG for review and approval as well development and enhancement of performance specifications. BCF provided technical assistance from “cradle to grave.” Each technical task that has been assigned to BCF has been completed either on or ahead of schedule. Specifically, BCF was tasked to:
- Perform risk analysis, mitigation, and traceability
- Produce a working prototype of the system
- Prepare high level engineering specifications
- Utilize Computer Aided Design in systems designing
- Provide configuration management
- Provide document control
- Model fabrication, assembly, and simulation
- Document system and train customer personnel
The evaluation and analysis of the technical engineering requirements resulted in a system designed to be compatible with current digital observation and also capable of interfacing with the latest systems’ technology.
