I. Description of Requirement
The Spacecraft Engineering Division’s (SED) primary research, development, integration, and test facilities are located in building A59 at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC (NRL-DC). A59 is a large industrial building with multiple access points, uncontrolled access warehouse spaces, and controlled access highbays and laboratories. The SED intends to upgrade A59’s existing Physical Access Control System (PACS), and add additional building perimeter and highbay door card readers. The current PACS uses NRL-DC issued identification cards. The SED requires the new PACS to use PIV/CAC/DBIDS card readers without requiring real time authentication via the remote Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). The new PACS must be compliant with HSPD-12 and FIPS PUB 201-2. The new PACS may use existing electronic door locking hardware and cabling provided it meets all PACS requirements. The SED will repair or replace any door that does not support the PACS hardware (electrified door hardware, electromagnetically locked devices, door contacts, request to exit devices, etc.). Ideally the new system will be in operation by the end of FY 2021.
