*Please note that while this particular grant program is open to all to apply, this grant program should be of particular interest to inventors and those who deal with computer technologies
The deadline to apply for this grant is May 12, 2007!
There is no funding minimum or ceiling which I am assuming to mean that applicants can request a funding amount!
There is no cost sharing or matching requirement required!
This government grant program seeks white papers for efforts that shall develop and demonstrate technologies for the next generation components and systems in Electronic Warfare. Although white papers addressing any truly innovative idea will be considered, the primary emphasis is on technologies to Detect and Defeat Imaging Infrared and Multi-Mode Threats.
Proposed efforts should focus on development of technology and techniques to detect and/or counter advanced threat tracking systems, missiles, and other Precision Guided Munitions that:
- Employ imaging sensors operating in the infrared spectral bands (with emphasis on the atmospheric transmission bands at roughly 1-2, 3-5, and 8-12 micrometers) designed to passively track targets, guide weapons, and negate the effectiveness of infrared countermeasures that have limited spectral or spatial fidelity to the target signature
- Employ multiple passive and/or active modes of tracking and guidance (electro-optical imaging, infrared seeking, laser spot/beam tracking, radar homing, active radar emitting, radio frequency command guidance, etc.) that can operate sequentially or simultaneously during weapon engagement to negate the effectiveness of single-mode countermeasures.
