Hello -

Are you able to pull a listing of contracts/solicitations associated with the JLENS system? I have not been able to find this information, which is why I submitted a FOIA request for it. For other FOIA requests related to military acquisitions, I have been able to move forward with these types of requests in this way.

Please let me know if this sounds like a reasonable way of moving forward.
