CONCISE SUMMARY OF TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENT: Seeking innovative research, development, integration, test, evaluation and delivery of technologies/techniques for next-generation, highly-directional, networked aerial layer communications.
Directionality allows focusing a greater amount of radiated energy on an intended receiver, improving interference resistance and/or increasing link capacity. Further, it reduces the amount of energy radiated in directions other than towards the intended receiver, reducing interference with other network nodes (self-fratricide) as well as observability (lower probability of detection/intercept), towards enabling/restoring critical communications functions.
BAA ESTIMATED FUNDING: Total funding for this BAA is approximately $49.8M. Individual awards will not normally exceed 24 months with dollar amounts normally ranging from $100k to $900k. There is also the potential to make awards up to any dollar value as long as the value does not exceed the available BAA ceiling amount.
ANTICIPATED INDIVIDUAL AWARDS: Multiple Awards are anticipated.
TYPE OF INSTRUMENTS THAT MAY BE AWARDED: Awards of efforts as a result of this announcement will be in the form of contracts, grants, cooperative agreements or other transactions (OT) depending upon the nature of the work proposed. In the event that an Other Transaction for Prototype agreement is awarded as a result of this competitive BAA, and the prototype project is successfully completed, there is the potential for a prototype project to transition to award of a follow-on production contract or transaction. The Other Transaction for Prototype agreement itself will also contain a similar notice of a potential follow-on production contract or agreement.
