The Office of Naval Research has released a BAA on Electronic Warfare Technology, BAA number N00014-17-S-B008. The goal of Electronic Warfare (EW) is to control the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) by exploiting, deceiving, or denying enemy use of the spectrum while ensuring its use by friendly forces.
ONR Code 312 Electronic Warfare (312EW) seeks proposals to develop and demonstrate technologies for the next generation systems in electronic warfare. The following research areas are of interest:
- Subsystem Demonstrator for EO/IR Beam Steering at Multiple Wavelengths
- Intelligent EW Subsystem Demonstrator (SSD)
- Networked EW Concepts
- Innovative Counter Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C-ISR) Concepts
- Innovative EW Concepts
White papers are due February 21, 2017 and full proposals are due February 21, 2017.
Icosystem “combines expertise in human behavior & decision-making with simulation and optimization techniques inspired by complexity science and biology to build predictive analytics solutions. These software simulations reflect the complex network of connections that make up real systems and make it possible to see emergent patterns and anticipate the impact of unexpected events.”
