Direct gauge mediation models using the Intriligator-Seiberg-Shih metastable vacua suffer from the Landau pole problem of the standard-model gauge couplings and the existence of R-symmetry forbidding gaugino masses. These problems may be solved by using the recently proposed supersymmetry (SUSY)-breaking models in a conformal window of the vectorlike SU(NC) gauge theory with gauge singlets. In this paper we propose a model of gauge mediation based on the SUSY-breaking model in the conformal window, and study the dynamics for SUSY breaking. In this model, there are massive vectorlike bifundamental fields charged under both SU(NC) and the standard-model gauge group, and our model can be regarded as a semidirect gauge mediation model. The color number NC can be small to avoid the Landau pole problem, and R symmetry is also broken under a reasonable assumption on the strong dynamics of the model. The model possesses only one free parameter, and the gaugino and sfermion masses are naturally of the same order.
