Lockheed Martin is seeking 1-2 page white paper proposals for technology to support the weapons systems retrofit of Iroquois-class Canadian destroyer ship that will be built in 3-5 years.
Lockheed Martin (LM) Canadian Surface Combatant - Naval Combat System (replacement of Iroquois and Halifax class maritime vessels)
Call for Proposals. All proposals received by Office of Research will be sent to LM for their consideration. LM considers whitepaper proposals as an opportunity for opening a discussion. Include in your proposal:
- Description of technology
- Reason technology is needed, its uniqueness, what makes it great
- Project cost
- Project length
- Name of LM contact you are working with already, if applicable (however, a LM contact is not required at this time)
Office of Research Deadline:
April 18, 2014
Before the end of 2014, LM will select only one project from across all Canadian universities.
Funding start date:
Late 2014 or early 2015. LM is funding the project out of their own budget. (i.e. this project is not ITB related. ITB is formerly known as IRB)
Research / Project focus areas:
LM is open to receiving ideas for combat system technology that will help detect and identify targets friendly or foe, for example:
The research project must be very applied and focused. LM needs to be able to implement the technology on the ship.
LM uses an eyes, ears and brain analogy for combat systems: eyes and ears = sensing technologies, brain = data processing / decision making technology.
Funding amount has not been determined by LM. LM will work with the chosen PI to fit project and budget together.
Length of project:
1 year (possibly longer depending on the technology and the importance of the project to LM)
Program submission instructions:
Send 1-2 page white paper proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org
